How many platforms do you develop for? Do you have a favorite IDE for Windows coding, but then switch to another for Mac development, and still a third for Linux? What if I told you that you could replace all of them with just one fast IDE that's packed full of features that will make you more efficient and productive? It's true! It's called Komodo IDE!

Komodo IDE is everything that you want in an IDE, and nothing that you don't! With Komodo IDE, you'll enjoy support for Python, PHP, Ruby, JavaScript, Perl and Web Dev, all in an environment that's suitable for development across Windows, Mac, or Linux platforms. Check out the new Publishing feature that lets you work locally while syncing with your remote server. Data-mine to your heart's content with the new Database Explorer. Hunt down and destroy bugs faster than ever with local and remote debuggers that work with over a dozen coding languages!

What makes life easier? Well, besides beer? You got it -- autocomplete! And now, Komodo IDE rocks full autocomplete functionality for Perl, HTML 5, CSS 3, and the latest versions of jQuery, Dojo and YUI!

Please note folks, today's discount applies to the single license (with upgrades and support) or the single license (without upgrades and support), but does not apply to the 5-pack license. Upgrade and support terms.

Mike B I have an older version of Komodo IDE - it's a very nice IDE for web & scripting languages. It does a great job with debugging, which was where all other tools for these languages fell short back when I needed it (it's been a while, so it's possible that other tools have closed the gap).

The only drawback is that it's pricey (even with the discount).

Users should also take note that ActiveState provides discounts for upgrades to new major versions only for users who have the version just prior. If you're 2 or more versions back, no discount. So keep current (maybe with a support subscription), or be prepared to have to pay in full when you decide it's time to upgrade.

U A looks like komodo 7 ide alpha4 is released. what will be the price of the upgrade to that version if we buy this? 145$?

Mike K @ ActiveState @U A:
If you choose to add an Upgrades & Support ($87) subscription to your purchase, all updates and major version upgrades will be included. Not only will you get Komodo IDE 7, but you'll get access to our dedicated Komodo support team and authors.

If you do NOT get Upgrades & Support with your purchase, you can buy an upgrade later on. This has historically been approx. $145, but we have not determined pricing for Komodo IDE 7 upgrades yet.

Mr. B @Mike K

Rails has made a number of changes to improvements. Is Komodo up to date with this?

For example, .rhtml is the old designation, with .html.erb being the current one. Does Komodo recognize the latest Rails standards? Or is it only for older Rails projects?
Aug 15 2011 at 4:17pm Copy Link
Mike K @ ActiveState @Brett Bibby:

Komodo recognizes .html.erb files as Ruby on Rails files.

If you're asking about the newish RoR 3 version, Komodo provides basic support for 'out the box' and can be extended further by installing the official RoR extension:


So, you should download and install that for full support.

Mr. B @Mike K

Thanks for the tip. The clock is running and I want to buy this, but...

I can't get it to work. I posted a question at the below links, hopefully I can get some resolution and buy this thing!

David Fuller Does Komodo have support for UI development? I mean, does i have screen and report painters? What about ETL?

Mike K @ ActiveState @David Fuller:
If you purchase with Upgrades and Support, you get automatic upgrade to Komodo 7.

You can join the Stackato Beta here:

David Fuller What about the Komodo 7 Beta? I purchased with the support so I'm more interested in learning 7 than 6.
Aug 17 2011 at 2:41pm Copy Link
Mike K @ ActiveState Yes, you will have access to the Komodo 7 Beta. For now, the Komodo 7 Alpha is currently available for download near the bottom of this page:

Mike K @ ActiveState @Brett Bibby:
The RoR extension is currently coded for Komodo 7 Alpha. We are addressing this for Komodo 6 and it will be resolved shortly. In the meantime, you can try with the Komodo 7 Alpha (link above).

Remember that if you purchase Komodo 6 with Upgrades and Support, you will be automatically upgraded to Komodo 7 when it is launched.

Mr. B Ah, thanks Mike.

I downloaded Komodo 7 Alpha and tried it and it works now! Will try it out and purchase if it works well.

Mike K @ ActiveState @David Fuller:
Komodo does not have the UI designer feature. If by ETL, you mean Extract, Transform and Load with databases, then Komodo has a database browser built in that allows you to browse tables and run queries, but not quite specialized to what someone working with ETL might need.
