Komodo Abbreviations: Inserting Snippets by Name

By Eric Promislow, December 15, 2010

Coding is fun, but typing is work. Komodo IDE provides several features that let you do less typing so you can have more fun.

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.

A Web-Framework Weekend: LinuxFest Northwest 2010 Preview

By Eric Promislow, April 20, 2010

One of my favorite local conferences is coming up this weekend, namely LinuxFest NorthWest in Bellingham, Washington. The range of sessions has always been somewhat unpredictable, but this year features a healthy number of talks dedicated to developing web applications with the main open source frameworks. I figure it will be a good chance for me to get up to speed on any new developments I missed out on, as well as meeting people who are working in the area locally.

Two reasons why an ActiveState fan uses Komodo!

By Troy Topnik, November 12, 2009

We love user screencasts!

As the guy who does most of the Komodo screencasts around here, I'm always delighted to see one that's been done by someone else. Creating a screencast takes a bit of time and it's difficult to get them right, so when someone spends the effort to make one just because they like our product, it makes us very proud.

Here's one by amberforge that shows off:

  1. Komodo's 'Go to Definition'
  2. Autocomplete features for PHP
