Could we get a comprehensive review of this vs RubyMine 4 in the Ruby and Rails development arena? I've not seen anything appreciable regarding Komodo for years now and it seems that it's kind of gone by the way side from some non comprehensive reviews I've seen.

PATHETIC! My God. I wasted 20 minutes just trying to get connected to a remote server. Absolutely the most horrible attempt an IDE in history. $300 license? Seriously...don't wonder why you go out of business.

I considered buying this app but, just like Firefox (since it is based on that platform) is SLOW to load on my MBP 17. To bad becuase this has some nice features. I'll stick to BBEdit until this is corrected.

I inCREDIBLY wish there was a native Mac OS X (e.g., written in Cocoa/Objective-C) app like this... but there's not. This is the best thing going.

Feature-wise it has lots of the features you would want. I put it head to head against Wing, Eclipse+plugins, and the others I could find. It's got the best featureset for coding in python on the Mac.

However, it has that very low quality GUI, because it is written using Mozilla's cross-platform crapware layer. Same reason that Firefox feels like shoddy garbage on the Mac. You might as well run a Java app: nonstandard UI widgets, menus that don't quite work right, bizarre flaws with text editing, and so on.

Still, I bought this and use it when I need to step through Python code in a debugger. It is telling that I WANT an IDE with all the integration features but still end up using TextMate for 90% of my Python coding, despite it being just a dumb editor without such features. That's because it's a great Mac app doing what it does. Komodo does cool stuff but the app is klunky.

How does its PHP handling compare to Zend Studio? Eclipse? Anyone know?

Version 4.0b3

It does a good job with the basic built-in PHP functions, but its support for some common external classes is lacking. It also doesn't import functions from application code, which is a downer for people like me who have literally hundreds of custom functions in various libraries and classes.

Bottom line: I still use Zend for my PHP development at LibraryThing.com and Eclipse for my Java work on my own side projects.


Thanks alot... not importing functions is a big deal for me as well. I love how Zend Studio handles that, among other things. I am really 100% happy with Zend Studio (and excited to make use of the integrated Zend Framework that they have deployed with 5.5) but I have seen Komodo around for ages and always kind of wondered.

Really a great application, I love the debug/step by step mode, the editor,etc... amazing. It's BBEdit on steroids !!! Don't look for anything else.
Try the 3 weeks demo, you'll be convinced.
Keep up the good work, it's a wonderful software !
