My laptop copy of an editor I've been using for over ten years bit the dust (I think the laptop is finally going). I tried removing and re-installing, no-go. Too many common files and I'm not playing with the registry. The laptop has been acting funny off-and-on lately in general.

I found a replacement editor, Komodo by ActiveState. Seems much more glorified than what I need, but it displays Line Numbers which my old editor did not! I hope it does nicely. So if you need an <new> editor, check out Komodo.

You sir are now on my Christmas card list....

I've used Komodo for over 10 years and it is amazing. I used to design my websites on an Apache server on my local network using it. After the site was built, I would do something silly like FTP the site to my web host, and then use Komodo via SSH to do small changes in near-realtime.

My favorite aspect is the intuitive coding. As I was using CSS, (PHP or PERL), and HTML all mixed together, it handled the parsing very well for whichever flavor of editing I was currently doing.

Cool, I must investigate Komodo more!
I like the bookmarks, and tag finds.

I have HTML; PHP; CSS in my site(s) (I currently only do one for mine, a railroad historical society, and my high school class, but have built over a dozen others over the years using Spider Pad. I'll only use an Apache server for sites.)
I also may be interested in editing on the server (SSH??), doing the edit then FTP thing now, but it's no big deal.

My old editor could shotgun files, ie. change phrase "old" to "new" in a bunch of selected files. Can Komodo also do this?

If you have all the files under a project (e.g. one of your websites) and have all the files open, I believe there is a Find/Replace for the current file or all open files. I'll have to double check.

Thanks.
I've not yet set up any "projects" in Komodo. I know where on my drive all the projects live (their own directory/sub-directory structure), but if adding them to a Komodo "project" would allow the shotgunning of all the files if need be, I'll add them as a project in Komodo.

Have a great evening.

Information technology really does move by leaps & bounds. It seems only yesterday that I was making web pages with notepad. Now its so complicated that power softwares are needed to edit them.
Just a few weeks ago my head spun when my daughter asked me to help with Java. We managed but I was secretly crying...

I know the feeling!!!
I try to stay away from Java, and only touch JS if absolutely necessary!!!
HTML was so simple, then they complicated everything with CSS.
Look at some pages done by the "site builders", pages & pages of code... and no word wrap.
I like keeping mine as simple as possible for the desired result.
I don't do grandiose either.

Cool.
It should do well for me. Maybe I'll finally retire Spider Pad on the desktop.

CSS can be as simple OR as complicated as you want it to be...LOL

I try to keep it to simple color references for tables and such so everything stays consistent
Here's an example of one that I did for a drumming site I have failed to maintain over the years:

body {background-color:#000000}
a:link {color:#000066}
a:visited {color:#000066}
a:hover {color:#FFFFFF}
a:active {color:#FFFF99}
p.main {color: #000000}

/* Table colors */
table.border {background-color:#000000}
table.main {background-color:#897365}
table.lgtbrwn {background-color:#A69387}
th.lgt {background-color:#C0B2AA}
td.lgt {background-color:#C0B2AA}
td.topnav {background-color:#AAB8C0}
td.lgtbrwn {background-color:#A69387}
td.drkbrwn {background-color:#897365}

Cool, so much to learn about CSS! So powerful. I do use a couple of those.

W3Schools is a Godsend!
And I have a book or two on it, remember those things?

Oh my book shelf is filled with all sorts of craziness: (HTML, PHP, PERL, CSS, MySQL) Cookbooks and Bibles. Linux/Unix/Cisco references and a good amount of the "Hacking Exposed" series.


You are spot on with W3Schools! It is probably my go to for all things programming/coding these days. I am currently using that site to learn Python for my current job and it's a great resource for sure!

I love W3Schools, that's where I got the image (comparison) slider and image flip thingies! It's neat to have notes on the "back" of photos!

One of these days... I'll get back into MySQL! I miss dBase IV/V, it was so much fun to work with.
I'm not going to be concerned with Python or PERL, not enough remaining brain cells. I already had about eight other languages leak out of my head (Four were proprietary (unique) test system languages.).

You can keep any and all database management..LOL That is one area I just have never gravitated to or find interesting (although vitally useful).

PERL is a brain cell killer for sure. I had to learn it for my job back in the early 2000's and it made parsing large volumes of data very easy , but apart from that I just put it up on the shelf and hopefully won't use it again...LOL

Python, unfortunately is used by the developers at my current job, and to understand the backend of our systems and how things are automated, I need to understand enough Python to be able to troubleshoot small issues. Again, like you, I'd be happier not learning it.

Back to Komodo, I think the SSH/FTP connection options are dependent on your hosting site. It allows the ability to do any/all of the common connection types, and makes for a great editor to make inline edits so you don't have to fiddle with uploading/downloading files to make changes. If it was a major site/coding overhaul, I would typically do all the dev work on my local apache server so I could break and fix code. But minor edits would be done while connected to my live website.

Take a serious look at Notepad++. Good for a wide range of editing.

I've used Komodo for Python, PHP, Perl, Java/Javascript and various other HTML related editing. A good product but overkill for most work.
