Some AppleScript / Terminal.app integration

By , February 28, 2009

For a long time I've used various iterations of some AppleScript to open a new tab in first iTerm and now Leopard's Terminal.app to open a new shell tab to the current directory visible in the Finder. The grand-daddy of these is of course Marc Liyanage's 'Open Terminal Here', and I still use a slightly hacked version of it.

Quite a while ago a started looking at how to run AppleScript commands directly from Komodo to do similar things. This is the result:

CakePHP development with Komodo screencast

By , February 26, 2009

Our handy blog-and-twitter scanning script coughed up this post over at pseudocoder about using Komodo ( his version is Komodo 4 ) for CakePHP development. Head on over to view Matt's screencast ( warning, the volume is a bit high on the video ) which features none other than my very own CakePHP extension for Komodo. Awesome!

Want Something? Pull a Trigger

By , February 11, 2009

Although there's been a disconcerting spike in gang-related shootings here in Vancouver, this article is talking about Komodo's triggers, macros that fire automatically under certain conditions. By taking advantage of these macros, you can get Komodo to automatically work in...

Debugging with the Google App Engine SDK

By Troy Topnik, January 8, 2009

A few months ago I downloaded the Google App Engine
SDK
to play with. Everyone seemed to be going nuts over the demo, and I
thought it would be neat to build a Komodo project template for
creating, testing and deploying these apps (along the lines of the Rails
and Zend MVC project templates).

Komodo 5.0.3 API changes

By Todd Whiteman, December 18, 2008

Just a heads up that the Komodo 5.0.3 release will change the behaviour of some of the common API methods. This should only affect a small minority of Komodo macros and extensions.

ko.open.URI
ko.open.displayPath
These methods were previously operating synchronously in Komodo 5.0.2, but will now operate asynchronous as of Komodo 5.0.3.
