Can I use Komodo to edit my website?

I am used to using Dreamweaver. Does Komodo do the same thing?
I would download files from the server, edit them and then put them back up.
Can I do that with Komodo and if so, how?
Thanks! Mac OSX El Capitain

Hey @Annie,

You can edit remote files in Komodo Edit but you can’t sync local to remote files with Edit. There is a tool called Publishing in Komodo IDE (the paid version of Komodo) but you would need to get a license for that.

To edit remote files in Komodo Edit you would:

  • open Places (View menu > Tabs & Sidebars > Places)
  • Click the gear icon in the top right > Open Remote Folder

Should be self explanatory after that but let me know if you need more help.

Thanks Carey. So after I have edited the files, I could upload them via Filezilla? Do you know if there is a tutorial for Mac about all this? Thanks again. :slight_smile:

You could absolutely use Filezilla for uploading if you don’t want to edit the files on the remote machine (which you probably shouldn’t be doing). You won’t have a “upload what’s changed option” though but that shouldn’t matter if you’re making small changed.

I’m not aware of a tutorial for this but if you have specific questions feel free to ask them.

As an unsolicited side note; think about using Git for updating your files on your server. Benefits:

  • only update files that have changed

  • you can recall (git diff) what changed

  • can revert to a working state within seconds if something broke with your update (git checkout [working commit hash])
