Komodo Edit – Great Free Editor For CSS PHP Perl and Codes

Filed under: Site Management

Komodo Edit is provided free by ActiveState the same people that provide Perl distributions.

This is one editor that you need in your toolbox if you ever have to work with lots of files and code projects.

Even if you don’t code a lot one of my favorite features is its ability to search through a directory of files for word matches.

So how is that useful?
Lets say you have a div with an id of  chicken and you know its hiding someplace in your php files…. or you want to find all the <H1> tags and change them to something else.

Trying to find things with Windows Search is just about useless I have found a 90% fail rate for trying to find text in files especially if it has a Quote or Equal sign next to it….

Anyway that is my favorite feature right now because my current project really needs it but you will find hundreds of useful options in Komodo Edit especially if you like to code a bit.
