less powerfull than Notepad++

given by Cornel Borina on April 9, 2009

it's great for people that don't need a fancy visual editor for developing.
It has some minor bugs, but for the 0.00$ price, it's the best.
The bad part is that it's verry demanding. Until you figure out how to set it otherwise, it scans all your drive for files just to make a list of user-definde functions

We must to pay for it.....I'm really disappointed about that

Komodo has four things I have had a hard time finding in other text editors
for the Mac: built-in FTP, auto-indentation that actually works and can be
configured, expand/collapse classes and functions, and listing classes and
functions. Heads and shoulders above TextMate for coding!

At $295 for a single-user licence, this shouldn't appear under open source any longer!

Tried Eclipse which seems over the top for me, tried a few
others like ultraedit, however this is the best so far for
html/css files etc; slightly more minimalist UI that others so
doesn't require a degree to reopen the window you just closed
by mistake, however there seems to be a lot of functionality
there to discover

The comments above that indicate Komodo Edit requires a license are incorrect. Komodo IDE is the (much heavier) commercial version; Edit is and has always been completely free.

That said, it's the best one I've found so far for Linux. The one function I miss from Notepad++ is the ability to save named sessions. Komodo Edit allows you to open the previous session's files, but not to save and load sessions by name.
