If you like Sublime, and its minimalistic 'Distraction Free Mode', you'll be delighted
to know that this exact same feature is in PyCharm as well.
Select it (View->Enter distraction free mode), and gone is all the screen clutter and
even the menu bar if you so desire. You can focus on just your code. And all of
PyCharm's features are still there a mouse click or keyboard shortcut away.
