Komodo Macro of the day: Inserting Image Tags

By Eric Promislow, November 20, 2012

Komodo 7 Macros A Komodo customer recently asked for us to make adding image tags painless the way he was used to in his previous editor. Instead of typing some HTML and the URI, he wanted to pick the image file via a dialog box, and have Komodo do all the work. Well, I could file a bug, and he could then wait for the next development cycle to release a fix.

Komodo IDE: Better Syntax Checking

Komodo has always been adept at working with multiple languages. When we realized that multi-language templating systems were becoming more common, we made it easier to create new colorizers for them. But until now, Komodo wasn't very flexible at checking the syntax of these documents.

Rx 2.0 for Komodo 6.0

By Eric Promislow, November 2, 2010

Komodo's Rx Toolkit is a debugger for pattern-matching. It lets you tweak patterns (or regular expressions, also known as "regexes", hence the "Rx") against subject text, showing you the results interactively. You can choose to see a single match, all matches, replacements, or even the result of "splitting" the string on the regex. While very powerful, patterns can quickly become complex and unwieldy, so it's useful to have a tool to try them out in isolation.
