Komodo IDE Features

What's New in Komodo X

Tutorial Tool (IDE)

Write and use tutorials that will run in Komodo. The possibilities here are endless, you could learn how to program in a new language or framework completely from Komodo, or use it as an educational tool for the classroom. Use our Getting Started tutorial to get to know Komodo better!.

Publishing Changes (IDE)

You can now force push and force pull files, which is incredibly useful for workflows where all you ever do is upload changes. Additionally we're introducing a dynamic toolbar button for Publishing actions, letting you quickly access common publishing tasks.

Chrome Remote Debugging (IDE)

Komodo Chrome Debugging

Debug your code in Chrome, from Komodo! No more context switching or locating the same code you've been working on again in the Chrome dev tools. You can write code, place breakpoints and debug all right from inside Komodo.

Gulp, Grunt, NPM task runner Integration (IDE)

Komodo Gulp, Grunt, NPM task runner Integration

Komodo now integrates with Gulp, Grunt and NPM tasks. The integration allows you to run commands for those task runners in your shell scope (inside Commando), it also adds a button to your dynamic toolbar (new in Komodo 10) which lets you quickly run commands via those task runners.

PhoneGap & Cordova Integration (IDE)

Komodo PhoneGap & Cordova integration

Quickly access PhoneGap and Cordova via your "dynamic toolbar", as well as interact with them via the Commando shell scope. Komodo automatically detects your configuration and provides contextual actions.

Support For React, Ember, Angular, TypeScript, ES6

Komodo Support For React, Ember, Angular, TypeScript, ES6

We've put a lot of focus on individual frameworks in Komodo 10, a trend you can expect to continue. With this iteration we focused on some of the most popular JS frameworks and derivatives.
