Work with existing project

Sep 1, 2011 at 4:07 PM

Hello. I was very impressed by Python Tools' features and decided to test it on our project. But there is a problem: this project has rather complex structure with many folders. I didn't find way to add the whole project's directory structure with all hundreds of .py files "in one click". I had to add all files manually but at first that will take much time and at second solution won't track changes in project's structure (and VS will copy all files to solution's directory). Our team members use different Python IDEs so I cannot force them to use VS 2010 only. For example, PyCharm can open not only it's projects but also usual folders and works with them like they are PyCharm projects. Can I use Python Tools in this way? In other way this plugin is practically unusable with existing projects: to use Python Tools you had to migrate to Visual Studio and use only it.

File->New->Project From Existing Code is probably what you're looking for.

Thank you, as far as I see, it is what I need.
