Working a crawler that involves capturing big sizes of data for your research. Using Pycharm IDE, I realize that it has a file size configuration limit that is 2.5Mb. And I get the message file size exceeds the configured limit.
True, the file size limit is mainly to protect your storage and the default 2.5Mb is enough for general files. But the crawler is probably generating a large file size bigger than the default file size specified by the IDE.
In this article, we will increase the default file size for PyCharm IDE. If you follow the steps below you will be able to change the default file size in MacOS.
The file size is set in the idea.properties file in the ./Application/PyCharm.app/Contents/bin directory.
Open the application directory and right-click on the PyCharm application
Click on the show package contents to open PyCharm application contents.
Open the bin folder in the Contents folder. The configuration file we are looking for is in the bin folder.
idea.properties file contains the configuration for the default file size that the IDE is using.
Open idea.properties file found in the bin folder in a text editor of your choice.
Now, change the value of idea.max.intellisense.filesize from 2500 to the value that you will be comfortable with. I change mine to 25000.
