0:02 It's time to focus on the editor.
0:04 This is the most important tool from any development environment that you want to work with
0:10 and in PyCharm, it's no different.
0:13 The editor is the most important place where you're going to spend almost all of your
0:17 time. Everything else adds to this experience.
0:20 As you can imagine. The editor and PyCharm is really good at working on
0:24 python code. But what's not obvious is it's actually much,
0:27 much more. I've heard people say,
0:29 well I don't use PyCharm because I actually do a lot of stuff on the
0:32 web and so I want to be able to work with other files like Javascript and
0:35 html Well, guess what, As you'll learn,
0:38 PyCharm has great support for Javascript, Typescript,
0:43 Coffee script, CSS, LESS. You name it.
0:46 Html the various templates, Jinja, Chameleon and Django and so on.
0:51 So this editor, while primarily we're going to be using it for python because your
0:54 python developers and this is a PyCharm course,
0:57 it actually works on many, many things beyond just straight '.py' files.
1:03 And you'll see that this editor,
1:04 because of the projects that we already spoke about understands your code better than almost any
1:09 other tool, as far as I know better than any other tool out there.
1:13 But in PyCharm, the editor has many subtle benefits and aspects that are really
1:19 powerful, so they're not always obvious and that's a big part of what this whole chapter is about. So lets go and discover all the amazing features.
