Komodo is a Mozilla-based cross-platform cross-language IDE created by ActiveState.

See for more information.

Note carefully the platforms supported - ActiveTcl/Tcl Dev Kit runs on more platforms than does Komodo.

Information about other development environments can be found at IDE.

Among the many interesting particular features of Komodo is the "ActiveState GUI Builder", a "simple tool for creating Tk-based GUIs for Perl, Python, and Tcl".

See also GUI Building Tools.

Features specifically related to Tcl are

  • Integration of the prodebug backend. This makes Komodo a Dynamic Debugger for Tcl.
  • Integration of procheck. This allows Komodo to perform Static Syntax Analysis of Tcl code while you are editing (similar to the grammar/spell checker in modern word processing applications).
  • Command and call tips (syntax-aware popdowns that assist as you write your code).

You can see recorded webcast demos of Komodo at .

Apparently, it could also be AOL's new Web browser: [L1 ]

RLH - I just wish it ran on OSX.

JH: Komodo for OS X is now in alpha (Aug 2005), available for user testing. The full Tcl capabilities are provided.

RLH - I am trying it out. I did post a bug to bugzilla because I have ActiveTcl installed but when I went into the language parser, Perl, Python, and PHP were there but Tcl was grayed out.
