Data. It's everywhere. We leave a trail of it everywhere we go, both on the web, and in real life, and these days there aren't many applications that don't use a database, even if it's just a simple table to track high scores in a game. And while the languages Komodo supports are great for interacting with databases, if you wanted to view your database tables you needed to use a tool outside Komodo.
If you're new to Komodo, you probably won't know or care that the Project system has just undergone a huge change. The left sidebar now displays a file browser called Places that works pretty much like a regular file manager. Beneath it is a sub-pane called Projects, and with a little poking around you can quickly figure out how they work together.
PEP 8 (the document) is the official coding style guide for Python programmers. pep8 (the utility) is a tool to check for style deviations in your Python source code. Here is how you can quickly integrate pep8 checking for your code in Komodo.
I like it when a Komodo tech support email comes in that makes me think "Good question. I don't know the answer. I bet we could make this work though."
One such question arrived last week from a long-time Komodo user who wanted us to make Komodo "portable" so that he could run it from a USB stick when he was travelling. Not everyone uses a laptop after all.
We (ActiveState) released Komodo 6.0 beta 3 today and we want your feedback. If you tried beta 2 from about a month ago and hit stability issues, I’m pleased to note that we’ve squashed a few major crasher bugs: beta 3 is much more stable. We’ve made some significant performance improvements as well. Update via Komodo’s Help > Check for Updates… menu entry and give it another try.
