  • Komodo IDE 10.1.2 Released

    Today we have released Komodo IDE 10.1.2, which fixes a long standing random crashes bug. It also addresses some stability issues which were primarily affecting fresh installs.

    To obtain the new 10.1.2 update you can either check for updates in Komodo, wait for Komodo to pick them up automatically, or head to the download page to manually download and install the update.

  • Creating Your First Android App With Cordova and Komodo IDE

    We've been seeing more of our users getting into mobile app development, so we added PhoneGap and Cordova integration in the Komodo X release. Although I'm not a mobile app developer, given the new functionality in Komodo I thought it would be fun to write my first Android App.

  • Komodo 10.1.1 Released

    Hope everyone is enjoying the changes in 10.1! Virtually the only "real" bug we've seen reported by users was the issue where "Find all" was failing. We released a nightly almost instantly and adjusted our schedule to get a stable release out soon after, and here we are.

    Aside from the "Find all" fix we also addressed some smaller issues. We're also including an experimental fix for random crashes, which is only called "experimental" because we have not been able to verify whether this indeed reduces the number of random crashes due to the nature of the issue.

  • Komodo 10.1 Released - Tutorial Tool, Publishing Improvements and More

    Komodo 10.1 is here! This is a great little release because we spent almost all of it focusing on minor enhancement and bug fixes.

    Head over to our download page to try Komodo 10.1 now. If you're using Komodo 10 already you should be receiving an update soon, though you can also manually download it below.

  • The History of Komodo, A Trip Down Memory Lane

    This blog was originally published on September of 2014. It has since been updated to include the release of Komodo 9 and 10 and was subsequently republished.

    The first version of Komodo was released roughly 16 years ago. This means Komodo is older than some of its users.. and yet its held up remarkably well thanks to our continuous work on Komodo.

    With this blog we'll take a look at where Komodo came from, where it is and where it is going.

  • Komodo 10.1 Beta Now Available

    The Komodo 10.1 beta is now available. This is a big update that focusses primarily on what our community has been asking us for. Over 100 bugs were fixed and more will be addressed before this release turns stable. While the vast majority of our effort has been focussed on community requests, we did also work on some creative vision of our own.

  • 10 Komodo Features Web Developers Will Love

    Komodo IDE X adds a ton of new features, many of which targeted at web developers. We realize that while not everyone may consider themselves a web developer, most developers these days will be using web technologies to some degree.

    Let's have a look at the top 10 features a web developer will care about (counting down from number 10). Clickbait title aside, I promise this is worth the read (and it's not like we're putting each item behind another page view, sigh).

  • How We Made Komodo X Even Faster

    Komodo has always been a very fast IDE. So much so that combined with its minimalistic UI many users tend to confuse Komodo IDE with an editor. Of course Komodo is an editor too, but to call it just an editor would be doing it a disservice.

  • Komodo 10.0.1 Released

    We hope everyone has been enjoying Komodo X so far. Today we're releasing our first update, which is focussed entirely on stability and primarily resolves bugs introduced in 10.0.0 as well as a few longer standing issues.

    No software release is perfect, there will always be bugs, but it's worth noting that the release of Komodo X went exceptionally well. It is easily one of our best releases (if not the best one) in recent years. If you've been holding off on taking Komodo X for a test run - now is the perfect time!

    Check below for the full release notes.

  • Chrome Debugging in Komodo X, Code and Debug in One Place

    Let me set the stage: You are a web developer. You spend many hours a week writing javascript, running javascript and debugging javascript. You're very adept at it, you write your code, fire up a web server and point Chrome at it. Then you use Chrome's powerful web developer tools to inspect and debug your code.
