It's worth mentioning that the skin of this app has been redone. The screenshot is not up to date. It's now much better and does not look like a generic java app anymore. However, It's still clunky now and then, and still does not feel like a cocoa app at all.

This editor has a built-in terminal but it's not a "real" terminal because it does not work properly with Ada's Get_Immediate command whereby your program can read a key press without hitting Return. I don't know why this is a problem but I've seen it in a number of other programs with a built-in terminal. Yes, I could run in Terminal.app but that is difficult because when one builds a program one does not know if there will be mistakes; if so, the mistakes will be sent to Terminal where clicking on the error does not return you to the offending line in your code.

I would be interested to know if the equivalent to Get_Immediate works with C code.

This editor is simply amazing if you want to develop web apps with html5. Not only is its autocomplete feature really good but it also shows you potential typos and previews of colour-codes. I really enjoy working with it!

I like Komodo but prefer CodeRunner for ease of use and for the ability to run small programs within CodeRunner (it has an integrated Terminal output window).

Try Textmate and Netbeans, which are both free, and have really nice features. For javaScript and PHP especially, try Netbeans.

The wrong file is linked. Komodo Edit IS free, Komodo IDE is not. Goto the developers site to download the correct version.


The correct files is now linked. Thanks for the heads up, and sorry for any inconvenience!

I keep coming back to Komodo Edit every time even though at first I didn't like it. I've tried other editors (jedit, editra, Fraise, TextMate, Eclipse, BBEdit, etc..) but, I just can't seem to beat the features and stability.

Give Komodo a try, its FREE, but make sure you visit the website and download a few plugins or you may feel a little limited.

I don't see any plugins on the Komodo website. Have I missed them?
