Multilingual ActiveState Komodo 5 conquers Perl, PHP, Python, and Ruby projects with strong debug facilities, excellent code control, and an unbeatable set of utilities.
Komodo IDE 5 from ActiveState is the most comprehensive code editor and debugger available for enterprise teams that develop applications using a range of dynamic languages.
-James R. Borck, InfoWorld
The increase in productivity I got from the interactive debugging environment in Komodo IDE probably saved me more than the purchase price within 48 hours. This is a quality product.
-Graeme Robinson, Memex Inc.
Komodo has changed my life.
-Mark Dale, GeniusMoon
I just finished up my first major project using Komodo and I cannot believe did not use it earlier! After using Zend Studio and Eclipse to develop LAMP applications, Komodo is hands down the best cross platform development IDE.
I'm a long time user of the Komodo IDE from ActiveState, and it kindly shows you the comment immediately preceding a function you type, in a tooltip as you provide parameters. Being able to see what parameters your method is expecting, what it returns, and any gotchas about using it without opening the file containing the class, saves a lot of time during development. Those kinds of comments I consider to be required.
-John Locke, opensourcesmall.biz
Komodo is intuitive, responsive, and full featured. In the 20 years that I've been developing software, this is one of the best IDEs I've ever used.
-Bryan Aamot, Brainware
Suffice to say with Komodo I got local and remote debugging up and running within just a couple hours, and it's been a total dream to use.
-Caleb Gilbert, highervisibilitywebsites.com
I've been a Komodo customer for almost five years, and couldn't imagine using another editor for my work with dynamic languages. Komodo IDE syntax highlights and auto-completes my Perl, Ruby, XML, SQL, HTML and CSS, allowing my team to write better code more quickly than we ever have. Version 4.1 added Ruby on Rails support that went beyond my expectations, including the ability to create databases directly from the YAML file. With the addition of soft characters and automatic updates in version 4.2, things are only getting better.
-Chris Gerber, Pfizer Global Manufacturing
I'd rather use Komodo than other IDEs. Komodo is easier to use and easier to configure and works the way I want it. Python support is great.
We started using Komodo for our hundreds of thousands of Perl code lines. We love the fact that with Komodo IDE 4.1 we can also use it for Ruby.
-Balázs Nagy, Chief Architect, TheNewPush, LLC
If you're in need of an IDE that can flexibly bridge multiple languages, support distributed teams with ease, and ultimately improve code quality and streamline development cycles, you'll want to take a close look at Komodo 5. An extremely flexible licensing scheme, allowing developers to run Komodo concurrently on all supported platforms (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux) from a single license, only sweetens the deal.
If you work in any of the languages Komodo supports, you owe it to yourself to examine it (for free). If you work in any two of them, you probably should just buy it.
-Andrew Binstock, Binstock on Software
We use Komodo IDE and the Perl Dev Kit to build our internal systems. They save us an amazing amount of time and effort.
-Jonathan Eunice, Founder and Principal IT Advisor Illuminata
-Issac Goldstand, Founder Mirimar Networks
Kudos for adding XML catalogs to Komodo 4.0. I am really impressed!
-Bryan Rieger, Yiibu
I really dig Komodo's toolbox; it's the coolest thing. It's great to have an editor that you can just extend like that, and share your extensions with the team - quickly, without having to write full-on plugins.
-Jerrett Taylor, Director of Software Development, Bravenet Web Services
I am a Mac addict, and on Mac OS X, I code with Komodo. I love Komodo's clean, integrated UI, the compact and usable project navigation bar, the ability to see code structure, and support for CVS and Subversion, and I was able to create a macro five minutes after installation! I am delighted with the capabilities. Komodo is the best IDE for scripting languages.
-Irakli Nadareishvili, Senior Software Architect, Picktek
Komodo doesn't just act as an IDE for Python but is also a very accomplished Perl, PHP, and Tcl IDE providing all the standard features like code highlighting and folding along with code completion. The Rx Toolkit is so advanced it could quite easily be a mini standalone app as it provides not only matching of text and highlighting but also shows the data that would appear in the various group matches.
-Doug Bromley, Straw Dogs
I use Perl constantly, and have to say that not only is Komodo the best editor I have ever used for Perl scripts, it's the best editor I've used for any language.
-Dr. Ed Chester, Flight Operations Specialist, National Space Centre, UK
Komodo is a world-class IDE. It makes software engineers out of hackers.
-Robert M. Craver II, Software Engineer, NOAA's National Ocean Service
Komodo has saved us a lot of time with its interactive debugging feature for Perl.
-Gene Daniel, Savannah River National Laboratory, WSRC
Komodo is a great product. My favourite feature is the regex generator/tester. It's saved me heaps of time and aggravation when coming up with complicated regular expressions to get through weblogs and the like.
-Ben Maddock, Web Administrator (UniSAnet), Flexible Learning Centre, University of South Australia
Komodo has been a lifesaver. I've never been a big IDE user but now I understand why a good IDE and a debugger are so important.
-John E. Vincent, Network Administrator
Great product, excellent service turnaround times. Komodo is my new IDE of choice!
-Tyler Bye, Senior Software Engineer and Fellow, Protoven
-Dave Rankin, President, Surf This! Web Design, Inc
I love Komodo! I have been using it for over two years, and upgrade every time a new version is available. Komodo has always been very useful for me, but I also appreciate the new features and enhancements. Thanks.
I appreciate your realistic licensing—I paid for my own copy and I use it at home on my Linux desktop, on my laptop, and here at my day job. I just used Komodo to build the application installer for our Windows-based app http://IncidentView.com/ and am building the data installer for it now. Komodo is one of the two pieces of software I willingly pay money for and recommend to colleagues.
-Brian Wilson, Alsea Geospatial, Inc.
As a passionate PHP developer, and having used competitor products extensively, I appreciate Komodo IDE every day. The improvement it and its add-ons have made to my productivity literally paid for the license cost in the first month.
-Marc Gray, Lamped.co.uk
After much frustration with other Python IDEs, I downloaded and tried the 21 day trial of Komodo IDE. What a difference! I will be buying Komodo. Komodo is faster, has a much better interface, and is far more intuitive than the alternatives.
