If you’ve been working with Maya tooling and PyCharm for a couple years you will have noticed that MayaCharm is not being updated as often as before. I’ve had to stick to quite old versions of PyCharm to even install MayaCharm, let alone run the remote debugging but that time is now gone. Everytime I have a new computer it is a big pain to set this up and running and recently I can’t get anything working!
I’m running PyCharm 2020.1 and MayaCharm is not compatible with that. Installing from disk will give you an incompatibility error.
I tried setting up debugging with the Python Debug Server and pydevd and it doesn’t work either.
How is everyone else doing with this? I don’t wanna use Eclipse but if you can’t even hookup the damn remote debugger to Maya then PyCharm is completely useless!
I’ve tried rolling back to earlier versions of PyCharm (going as far back as 2018.3) - and earlier versions of MayaCharm (as far back as 2.1) and no matter what, the MayaCharm Debugger never shows up in my run configs.
