For information, we can find all HTML Entities values here :

Infact You don't have French accents too...
But if you want to add all HTMLEntities, the extension won't be easy to use.

I advice you to add a small input field where we can add a character in order to generate the appropriate HTML Entity.

Or add them in the right-click menu ? (you have a bad character for example "&", we make a right-click on it and your extension give in the menu an entry to replace it by "&".

I hope I had well explain it :)

is it possible to position the tab on the same side as the toolbox?

chemix | Tue, 2009-06-16 04:42

in my komodo 5.1 is it possible,
right click on tab name and Move to -> Right Tab Group

(but i have installed Tweek UI, maybe it is possible whit this extension?)

Great work thank you.
But in version 0.5.6 the non numbered entities for < and > both output the same thing.

chemix | Sun, 2009-08-30 07:58

lt & gt fixed

Hi ChemiX,

I found your add-on very useful as I recently switched from Zend Studio (having an helper tool for entities) and I was missing this as I usually forget the html entities codes.

However I found some duplicate chars and some missing ones - most of the Latin chars you can find at

I also took the liberty to rearrange the chars in order to get the same kind ones (eg punctuation, currency, special, etc) close together and added a little touch at the html_entities.css.

There are more chars to add to make it complete and I would also like to find some time to see if it is possible to add a selector to let the user see just one kind of chars at a time in order to avoid a too much long list.

In the meantime, if you like to get the updated files just send me a note at ugo [ at ] grandolini [ dot ] net and I will be happy to send it.

thank you and have a great 2010!

Hi. Is development still happening with this plugin?

This plugin has swapped with the "Places" tab, somehow. If I click "HTML Entities" then I get the Places pane.. if I click "Places," I get the HTML Entities pane. Very weird.


Plugin ver: 0.7.n

KE ver: Komodo Edit, version 6.0.3, build 6811, platform win32-x86.
Built on Wed Dec 08 00:31:13 2010.

chemix | Sun, 2011-01-23 14:12

I'll create update ASAP

thanks for reporting ...I still use Komodo Edit 5

I just wanted to say thank you for the great extension. It's a real timesaver.

There seems to be an issue however. The tab displays in the left tab group but the HTML entities listing doesn't.

Here's the screenshot: (sorry about the ads).

Komodo Version: 5.2.4, build 4343 on Windows XP SP3
Plugin ver: 0.8.1


chemix | Tue, 2011-03-08 17:15


i have Win Vista + Komodo 5.2.4 (4343) and it works

but i have "Tweak UI" extension ... please try it, and tell me if is then better or not

The entities load up on the right pane without issue. It's only when you try to move the tab over with the Tweak UI extension that you run into problems (entities' list will not output).

Thanks again! :)
