More Komodo Love


So a while ago, I requested syntax highlighting for CoffeeScript in Komodo. A bug was opened. A dude was put on the case. Not much happened.

I thought.

Not long ago, I updated the bug to reflect the fact that CoffeeScript is going to be baked-in to Rails 3.1.

Four hours later, the bug is resolved. Apparently, they’d built CoffeeScript highlighting into Komodo 7.0, and back-ported it into 6.1 because of my comment on this bug.

Keep on bein’ awesome, Komodo.

EDIT: For those who were curious, the Bug ID is 89419.

    Wouldn’t hurt to mention the bug number.

    BTW, thanks! I had been working on writing one myself and it’s not really such a fun task.

    I’ve just been telling Komodo the file was Javascript, and then turning off CodeIntelligence on a per-file basis.

    It’s not NICE, but it WORKS. Sorta.

    Is there a simple way (i.e. short of checking out and building Komodo Edit) to get the backported 6.1 build (which is presumably more stable than the 7 alpha)?

    Sorry, none that I know of – but try emailing ActiveState support. They’re usually really good about going out of their way for their customers!
