Komodo Edit is a free text editor for dynamic programming languages. It was introduced in January 2007 to complement Active State's commercial Komodo IDE product. With the release of version 4.3, Komodo Edit is built on top of the Open Komodo project. Many of Komodo's features are derived from an embedded Python interpreter.[2]

Open Komodo uses the Mozilla code base, along with Scintilla, and the two products share many features and support the same languages (including Python, Perl, PHP, Ruby, Tcl, SQL, Smarty, CSS, HTML and XML) and computer platforms (Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows). The editor component is implemented using the NPAPI, with the Scintilla view embedded in the XUL interface in the same manner as a web browser plugin.

Both Komodo Edit and Komodo IDE support user customization through plugins and macros. Komodo plug-ins are based on Mozilla Add-ons and extensions can be searched for, downloaded, configured, installed and updated from within the application. Available extensions include a functions list, pipe features, additional language support and user interface enhancements.

Komodo IDE has features found in an IDE, such as integrated debugger support, DOM viewer, interactive shells, and source code control integration, as well as the ability to select the engine used to run regular expressions, in order to ensure compatibility with the final deployment target. The commercial version also adds code browsing, a database explorer and support for many popular source code control systems.[3] Independent implementations of some of these features, such as the database editor and remote FTP file access, are available in the free version through the plugin system.
