Komodo developer extension
by Todd Whiteman

Todd Whiteman, January 14, 2008

I've recently added a new Komodo extension that is a great asset for extension developing or JavaScript/Python Komodo hacking.

This extension provides the means to open up either a JavaScript or Python shell and interact on the fly with the Komodo application, basically a real-time Komodo macro!

The benefits of using these shells is that you can get Tab code completions for your objects (using object inspection) and be able to test snippets of code that target the embedded Komodo architecture.

One of my favourite uses of the JavaScript shell is for playing with xpcom components, especially since it will give auto completion on those pesky interface names... like I can remember those :D

I hope the Komodo users can get some good use out of it, you can download it here:

Cheers,
