and maintainer of:
I finally got some time to sit down an try out Komodo for OSX, I had some problems with downloading the dmg from ActiveStates site, but a quick query to #perl and a helpful person could provide me with a different URL for download (thanks kgftr|konobi).
So after installation I setup a project based on one of my existing projects in CVS, imported the files and started working, there is nothing like hands on - and doing actual work in a project I new would be a good way to evaluate whether Komodo could add anything to my development.
I downloaded the professional edition, since it had version control integration, this is not in the persional edition for some reason (see: the feature comparison list).
But everything was imported from the file system and I got started working. The editor seemed a bit slow, I had of course imported a HUGE project and there for the code scanned and revision control integration takes a lot of cycles and resources, so I am convinced that I need a faster computer, I am currently using a 550 mHz, TiBook - I think you can disable some of these features, but that kind of take the gas of Komodo if you ask me.
Today I imported a smaller project, which was under revision control in Subversion everything seems to work a bit faster, probably due to the size of the project.
I started working on integrating some of the build steps used in my Perl projects, like:
And this is SO easy, I have actually never tried an IDE where this was so simple - now I just have to figure a way to get it integrated into a menu.
Komodo is really cool and I think I will buy a license after my triel license runs out on the 23rd. of december.
