Komodo Edit : A great editor for dynamic languages

Being a Linux/Ubuntu user, i cannot use the praised Textmate editor to develop ruby applications. I tried a lot of editors, some of them being very good ones, but in the end I always end up using gedit.

gedit is great… but it is rather limited features-wise. Recently I have tried Komodo Edit and I can say that this is the best RubyOnRails editor available on Linux. It has a lot of features (autocomplete, tons of supported languages, macros, color schemes, etc) but somehow it is still light and minimalist.

Komodo Edit is also available on Mac and Windows

    Yes, I agree… even on Windows though: it’s really a great editor. I normally try to keep using gVim, but sometimes the temptation (and the lazyness) is too strong.

    I wrote a review of Komodo Edit a while back: http://www.h3rald.com/articles/komodo-edit-review

    You got a pretty valid point I must say, gbwdmf lcftioenq… but still, I think you are taking my post far too personally. Moreover, while I understand that Komodo Edit might not the be the be-all end-all code editor, it is pretty solid nonetheless. You should try it instead of jumping to conclusions.

    I have both textmate for all quick tasks. Komodo IDE is also a tool for me for a long time also.
    But after I’ve use IntelliJ recently + Ruby plugin. The refactoring tool and great workflow of IntelliJ made me changed.

    RubyMine is just release and the price isn cheap compare to the dedicated Ruby IDE for real productivity.

    Take a look at the demos!

    Essays belong to a literary species whose extreme variability can be studied most effectively within a three-poled frame of reference. There is the pole of the personal and the autobiographical; there is the pole of the objective, the factual, the concrete-particular; and there is the pole of the abstract-universal. Most essayists are at home and at their best in the neighborhood of only one of the essay’s three poles, or at the most only in the neighborhood of two of them.custom essay Like the novel, the essay is a literary device for saying almost everything about almost anything, usually on a certain topic. By tradition, almost by definition, the essay is a short piece, and it is therefore impossible to give all things full play within the limits of a single essay. But a collection of essays can cover almost as much ground, and cover it almost as thoroughly, as can a long novel. Montaigne’s Third Book is the equivalent, very nearly, of a good slice of the Com├ędie Humaine.
