What's New in Komodo

What's New in Komodo 10.1

Tutorial Tool (IDE) 
Write and use tutorials that will run in Komodo. We are using this mechanic ourselves with the introduction of some useful "getting started" tutorials. 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.

Publishing Improvements (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.

Language Updates

We've added support for Mustache templating as well as support for syntax checking in Angular files. Additionally our Gulp integration has been extended to support Gulp.babel tasks.

And tons of little things

  • Global font settings
  • New branch switching statusbar widget for Git and Mercurial
  • Various improvements to the commit dialog
  • VSCode Keybinding set (for converts)
  • Improved user experience for the color scheme editor
  • Better HiDPI support for Linux
  • Find results can now optionally open in file tabs
  • Added missing Laravel Blade directives (thanks to lagbox!)
  • Added RGBA support to our color picker (thanks to Defman!)
  • Improved multi-caret behavior
  • Various codeintel improvements
  • Performance improvements
  • Improved multi-window stability
  • And tons more (see the changelog)

What's New in Komodo X

Chrome Remote Debugging (IDE) 
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 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)
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
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.


Symbol Browser (IDE)
The section scope (inside Commando) now allows you to browse symbols across your entire project. So you can easily jump to classes, functions, properties, or other symbols no matter where they are in your project.


New Interface
The entire user interface has been given a big facelift. This facelift isn't just about making Komodo more attractive and enjoyable to use; a ton of user experience work has gone into the facelift, making Komodo 10 the most user friendly Komodo we've ever released.



First Start Wizard
When you first start Komodo (or when you update between major versions) Komodo will now show you a short and simple first start wizard that lets you customize Komodo to your likings. Tabs or spaces? The bias is all yours.



New Version Control UX
The version control user experience has been completely overhauled, making for easier and more intuitive interaction with your repositories.



  • Ruby 2.1+ Debugging (IDE)
    In addition to Ruby 1.x and 2.0 Debugging you can now debug Ruby 2.1 and beyond. This also includes REPL support for these versions.
  • New Default Keybindings
    New default key bindings that are based on industry standards and cold hard logic; if it doesn't make sense it shouldn't be a (default) keybind.
  • Improved PHP CodeIntel
    Komodo 10 supports PSR4, allowing for smarter CodeIntel for all PHP frameworks that use the PSR4 specification.
  • Improved JavaScript CodeIntel
    Enhancements have been made in JS module detection and general JS parsing, making Komodo 10's JS support the best it's ever been.
  • Performance Improvements
    Komodo 10 has received significant performance improvements. File opening, closing, saving, typing, .. you name it. Additionally we've fixed a long standing memory leak which caused users to have to restart Komodo every few days, that should no longer be the case.
  • And so much more!
    • Entire UI is now skinnable using the color scheme editor
    • Improved source code control UI and UX (IDE only)
    • New SCC Commit Dialog (IDE only)
    • New SCC Widget (IDE only)
    • Improved unit testing UI and UX (IDE only)
