Python Using Databases in Python Gettin' CRUD-y With It Add An Entry

For anyone getting EOF errors when trying to use PyCharm

In your menu bar

Select Run>Edit Configurations

Tick the box for Emulate Terminal in Output Console under the Execution header.

ReRun diary.py, and then add your entry. When you are finished, enter CTRL+D and then hit enter. Your application will run as intended.

This will stop PyCharm from sending the incorrect EOF signal to the console.

My solution for Mac users.

In menu bar select PyCharm>Preferences>Keymap , search for EOF. Click Add Keyboard Shortcut. I used ⌘I because there is conflict with ⌘D.

After you run diary.py , type your entry, hit ⌘I and after that hit Enter.

Thank you for the tips guys. Unfortunately neither worked for me. What did work was a slight modification of Brice's tip. Instead of checking the box for Emulate Terminal in Output Console, I checked the box Run with Python Console.

It's a little funky, you need to hold control while pressing Enter to get a new line, but it works. Just press Enter instead of Ctrl + D and you will get the same result.
