I am new To Komodo 8.5 trying to learn Python. In my work, I need to be able to bounce between Python 2.7 and the new er Python 3.4 (both I have installed on my computer.) Right now, Komodo keeps “waking up” with Python 2.7, but how do I toggle to “do” Python 3.4 work?
By chaning the language of opened file.
THANK YOU! That works like a champ.
It’s better to open a file from a Python or Python 3 template.
File > New > File from Template
I would not recommend you save it as a text file and then setting it’s language to Python. That would be very confusing.
Note that Komodo can detect what language a file is as well. For example:
create two files outside of Komodo and name them foo.py and bar.py
add #!python to the top of one file and #!python3 to the top of the other
open each file in Komodo
witness the magic of language detection
NOTE: #! declarations are called shebangs in case you aren’t familiar with them.
