    "Best cross platform editor I've used"

    November 13, 2013  |   By dcregal

    Version: Komodo Edit 8.0.2

    Pros

    Smart completion - recognizes your PHP functions and auto-completes.
    Quick jump to definition of functions - hold down a key and click on a function to jump to declaration.
    CROSS PLATFORM! I work with Windows, Linux and Mac. I don't have to memorize shortcuts or nuances for 3 different editors.
    Projects - create projects, drag-and-drop files into projects to quickly access again.
    Search and replace - with RegEx, within Selection.
    Column mode editing - say I want add a command such as "copy " to a list of 20 filenames? Komodo Edit has it.
    Syntax Highlighting - easy to customize and create different themes.
    Syntax correction - many pesky syntax mistakes such as missing semicolon are not a problem. Komodo tells me there is an syntax error.
    End of Line - quickly convert between Windows or UNIX line ending formats. Also detects and fixes mixed line endings.
    Tabs to spaces and vice versa - Indenting with tabs or spaces doesn't matter as much since Komodo can quickly change between the two.

    Cons

    FTP - It works but is kinda flaky. If all the settings weren't right, when I try to connect Komodo would spin its wheels and I had to "Force Quit." I didn't use this much since my server has such tight security it would log me out after several minutes and it is quicker and easier for me to develop locally in a virtual machine.
    Heavy footprint - KE does take a lot of memory and takes a few seconds to open. If I want to do quick editing of text files or have a scratchpad area, then I use TextWrangler on Mac or Notepad++ on Windows.

    Summary

    I've used many editors, paid and free, Dreamweaver (circa 2006), Visual Studio, Notepad++, Crimson Editor, VIM, TextWrangler, and many others. Komodo by far has all of the features I want. Komodo is stable too. I don't know what the bad review is about, perhaps a "crash" was something to do with FTP spinning its wheels. Besides FTP, this editor wins hands-down. Since I couldn't find version 7 on Download, this is really review for Komodo Edit 7 on Mac. Version 8 on Linux is flawless so I expect Mac version to be the same. But for REAL development work fast on Windows, Linux or Mac, my home is in Komodo.

    "A Jumbled, Bug-Infested Hot Mess"

    November 6, 2013  |   By gormarx

    Version: Komodo Edit 7.1

    Pros

    None, really. There is a freeware version, but I'm removing even that - it's a complete disaster, at least on Mac.

    Cons

    If you try to view/edit multiple files, e.g., from your FTP client, only one of them opens and loads in the window. It doesn't retain your search options - not the position of the window, not the preference (current file vs. all files, uppercase vs. lowercase, etc.). You have to go through what feels like 15 clicks if you want to search and replace something - EVERY TIME - because the idiots who made it can't program something so basic as remembering search/replace options. It crashes at random intervals for no apparent reason. The fonts are hideous. Menus and preferences are chaotic beyond words. It is a COMPLETE PILE OF CRAP.

    Summary

    There is a reason this pile of junk is free. If you want a good editor, just buy Dreamweaver and forget this bug-infested cesspool of a program.

    "the best free multi-platform programmer's editor on osx"

    October 18, 2011  |   By dumb0x

    Version: Komodo Edit 6.1.2

    Pros

    ~ free / open source
    ~ dozens of languages built-in
    ~ syntax highlighting
    ~ syntax checking
    ~ predictive auto-completion
    ~ tabbed windowing
    ~ lots of time saving features
    ~ drag and drop interface
    ~ built-in HTML preview
    ~ code collapse
    ~ projects
    ~ built-in ftp
    ~ customizable / configurable
    ~ works on osx, win, and linux and provides identical user experience across all three

    I teach web design at a h.s. with mac osx workstations. It was a nightmare finding a good programmer's editor for osx that didn't do *too much* for my students (so they would actually learn how to code), yet had "training wheels" like syntax highlighting, was affordable for my school, and was multi-platform (so they could work at home on their projects also).

    To the reviewer who said it is not free: you are confusing Komodo *IDE* with Komodo *Edit*. Komodo Edit is free (no-trial) and open source and can be downloaded from ActiveState's website. Komodo IDE is a commercial product built on top of Komodo Edit.

    Cons

    ~ I wish it hooked in to HTMLTidy / the W3C HTML syntax checker natively.
    ~ The ftp connector is useful for experts, but confusing for beginners who need to modify a local copy, then "push" it to the server.

    Summary

    This is *the* way to go if you are looking for a programmer's editor that is free and runs on osx or on several platforms.

    "Price: Free?"

    January 20, 2011  |   By machouse

    Version: Komodo Edit 6.0.3

    Pros

    I have no idea.

    Cons

    If you go to their website, it says that the price is $295. It's not a free product, is it? Providing a 21-day trial version doesn't make it a free product.
