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. As of version 4.3, Komodo Edit is built atop the Open Komodo project. Many of Komodo's features are derived from an embedded Python interpreter.[2]

Open Komodo uses the Mozilla and Scintilla code base as they share many features and support the same languages (including Python, Perl, PHP, Ruby, Tcl, SQL, Smarty, CSS, HTML, and XML) and operating systems (Linux, OS X, and Windows). The editor component is implemented using the Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI), with the Scintilla view embedded in the XML User Interface Language (XUL) interface in the same manner as a web browser plugin.

Both Komodo Edit and IDE support user customizing via plug-ins 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 integrated development environment (IDE), such as integrated debugger support, Document Object Model (DOM) viewer, interactive shells, source code control integration, and the ability to select the engine used to run regular expressions, to ensure compatibility with the final deployment target. The commercial version also adds code browsing, a database explorer, collaboration, support for many popular source code control systems, and more.[3] Independent implementations of some of these features, such as the database editor, git support, and remote FTP file access, are available in the free version via Komodo Edit's plugin system.
