Install RPi module on Pycharm

I've been using IDLE with my raspberry for a while, it's nice at the beginning, but Pycharm provides lots more of features and I'm used to them since I've been also using Android Studio.

The problem is I couldn't figure out how to install the RPi module to control the pins of my Raspberry. Does anyone know how to do this?

In case it matters, it's python3 on a raspberry 2B.

As far as I know there is no way of installing it on your desktop but PyCharm has a remote programming feature that allows you to use the PyCharm interface through an ssh connection to your raspberry pi. See this tutorial on connecting the two.
