Cursor python vs pylance

What’s the difference between pylance and cursor python?
where to read more?


Will post more about this in the general release. The gist of it is Pyright is the type system that powers the pylance language server. We forked the pyright code to build a language server with the same exact functionality - since pylance is only built for vscode

So should I install pylance and you pyright fork would give me almost features parity?


I created an account in the Forum just to ask what’s going on with Python Language Server. I really miss Go to Definition, Command-Click a symbol to go to its definition and Rename Symbol.

I can’t even go back to VSCode because I paid one year in advance, and I don’t want to just waste my money.

Welcome to the monopoly train, it is because Pylance is from Microsoft, and they only allow it to run on Visual Code.

I hope that Cursor team can write a document alternative solution for this.

Select Python extension, version v2023.18.0 and switch to Jedi instead of Pylance work for me
