code intelligence slow


Since I'm with komodo ide 8.5.2, code intelligence is very slow.

For instance, if I type in php "ech", it takes 5 seconds to show "echo" as a choice.

And if I "ctrl-mouseover" on function, it takes a long time to show the definition.

Is there something I can do ?



Java Support


What is the current practice for calling Java code from ActivePerl in specific, and Perl in general?

I've have found examples using Java (good, but old) and Inline::Java (not really appropriate for calling third-party code).


pylint/virtualenv/Python 3: does project use virtualenv or system pylint?

I have a Python 3 project using a virtualenv with the current nightly build of Komodo Edit (build 14209), and in the error log it shows that Komodo was trying to use the system copy of pylint (which was at 0.28).

In the application settings under syntax checking, the setting for Pyflakes indicates that it would use a system copy if it were installed, but the setting for Pylint doesn't.

Javascript auto-complete problems

I am having problems getting the autocomplete to work for my Javascript modules. (See comments in code)

Also is there some trick to get it to autocomplete included external javascript? I have a package, it is not marked with JSDoc, but doesn't even do basic auto complete. Even if I move my simple code below to a included file, it won't even autocomplete "Animal" after "new".

Full Code Attached

     * A module representing an Animal.
     * @constructor

    function Animal()
      this.owner = "Homeless";
    /** Set the owner.

switching tab, losing cursor position

Hello guys,

I have a problem: when I switch from tab to tab, komodo lose my scroll cursor position. This is very frustrating, I lose productivity because I'm constantly scrolling to find where is the code I was editing before switching from the page earlier...

I'm new to Komodo, I've used NotePad++ for years. A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine gave me a link to your site to download Komodo 8.5.2.

Komod Edit - updates do not update Windows install database

As per title - this is not a major problem but just FYI. I am running Windows 7 x64.

After Komodo Edit auto-updated to 8.5.3 recently, I noticed that under 'Control Panel > Programs and Features' KE is still listed as 8.0.2 installed in June 2013. This is my original clean install.

Obviously the updater is not notifying Windows of new versions and install dates.

Git Branches and Tags

Does Komodo IDE support Git branches and tags? I don't see them under the SCC menu, nor can I find them in help.

Can I access a Git command line or otherwise issue "non-GUI" commands from the IDE?



Dont install Node in program files!

i am new to Node world, and when trying to make the hello world program, i got a problem, and it is simply the Space character!
When Komodo (edit) tries to execute the script using the command, then it fails and dont know what is Files (Program files).
so the tip is to install Node in c:/Nodejs so there will be no white space!
