Pydev for Eclipse - configuring ArcGIS Pro

Discussion created by KanDOT on May 3, 2017

I like using Pydev for Eclipse, so when at first I had to set up the Pydev interpreter for ArcGIS Pro and the conda install, I ran into a snag.  


In Eclipse (or Jupyter, or other) you can choose your python install and manage your python path.  This is pydev for eclipse Luna.  Eclipse - project - properties - PyDev - Interpreter/Grammar settings:


I changed my grammar version to 3.0, and click to configure an interpreter not listed:



Here is my default interpreter for my ArcGIS 10.4.1 environment:



I created a new environment and chose the python.exe at the "propy path" documented here




at the ArcGIS\Pro\bin\python\envs\arcgispro-py3 directory:


and now my pydev for eclipse works in the ArcGIS Pro 1.4/conda interpreter.  


What threw me off originally, and prompted this thread: python.exe exists in multiple locations under my Pro directory, and the envs directory was not the first place I found a python.exe for eclipse to use.
