[Fixed]-Pycharm warns package requirement not satisfied when using pipenv to install package



The solution is in this answer on the JetBrains support forums.

The steps are as follows:

  1. Go to File > Invalidate Caches/Restart… and press Invalidate and Restart.
  2. Once restarted, add the interpreter back, wait for the stubs to be rebuilt and then check to if the problem has been resolved.
  3. If not, then first remove the pipenv interpreter as the project interpreter by going to File > Settings > Project: > Project Interpreter and setting the project interpreter to No Interpreter. Click Apply and OK. Then repeat steps 1 and 2 and see if it solves the problem.

I’m not sure why this problem occurs, but it seems to solve it when it comes up.

EDIT 07/29/19:

This bug has been fixed in the 2019.2 Release of PyCharm.

I had an old requirements.txt laying around after switching to setup.py and pip install -e ..

Removed the requirements.txt and the warnings disappeared.



Make sure that your paths are right.

for me, I was using venv, so its path should be the same path of the project + "/.venv"

that solved the problem for me.

and the same for pipenv:

I’m still running into this issue on 2020.3. I think it’s because when setting up the interpreter the python interpreter is in a virtualenv and the pipenv install is in $PYENV_ROOT/versions. To workaround this, I just set the interpreter as a virtualenv environment and manage pipenv through the CLI.
