LOL, I was nervous about using that stereotype. Actively try to avoid sterotypes in every form but takes significant effort and sometimes I slip.

To be fair, perhaps a more abusive interetherwebnets was more the way things were in the past. I am guilty of many of the nasty behaviours myself however they are 99.9$ in the past by a margin of several years. Let us just say that when extreme personalities have initiated the abuse within a workplace context and a position of power / control not necessarily wielded with decent consideration for others, I was not backward in fighting fire with fire ... in fairness, often on behalf of users as I perceived myself, in a help desk role, to be the bridge between users and the 'level 2' geeks who were not necessarily the most humanly minded at the time. In other words, I was fighting the almost dictatorial to provide access to people who were not easily able to access a simple, easy online life.

As awareness of trolling, flaming, bullying and even "you're free to modify yourself" open source ignorance (majority of people have not the skills) have now become more widespread, the online world is sometimes more decent. That is a relief but yeah, the impact of the early domination of asocial types who just happened to have invested perhaps inordinate time building the interweb in the manner they saw fit, is not erased from my probably-subconcious memory.

OTOH, sometimes when paying for software, relying on it for stressful everyday use, and the people behind it just are not doing a good enough job ... such as breaking previously functional critical functionality ... there needs to be a kick up the arse or other form of accountability. In the physical world, we have ombudsmen and the like, in the digital world, do appropriate levers for recourse when software quality goes wrong exist? Not that I am aware of. Instead, software vendors almost universally hide behind EULAs and caveats nobody can really challenge.

Thanks for the tips re Komodo. I guess it was silly of me/thinking out loud, sort of, to suggest possibly integrating Dev Tools as that is not necessarily going to help edit the chrome context I was going for. That said, as a primarily front end dev, if anything, the idea of what could perhaps be kind of a pseudo Dreamweaver experience - without the graphical drag and drop nature of building pages, but with change in the Inspector etc rendering as an in-editor live preview ... within the one app (rather than flipping to the browser thousands of times a day) - definitely has appeal on a back of the hand basis.
I definitely tried to use the Colour Scheme Ediitor both with the GUI colour picker and the LESS code. No such luck. To be fair, unless I am missing something, the colour pickers are not very useful as they are mostly, maybe all, only allowing background colour changes. That is not logical without the foreground text being changeable to make an effective contrast between the two :) Will do screenshots when I can.

Hey @siskacoin

@inspector71 I just double checked to be sure and updating Status: OK and Status:Info and the change is reflected in the UI. I think what oyu might be missing, if that's not working for you, is that you're not clicking the Apply button then OK in the dialog that pops open with Interface checked.
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
You're correct that that particular change is only for the background of the notification but I'd think you can still get appropriate contrast against the text colour. Having said that, there must be a way to change the text colour but i can't remember which it is.
I'll have a peek
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
Oh duh. Change Status: Foreground to change the text of the notification. I totally missed that.
Re: the conversation about the world/internet. I should respectfully bow out of that convo in this context since I represent ActiveState here. But I like how much thought you've given it and reflection. That's extremely important.

Hi @th3coop

Sorry, did not mean to compromise you.Did not realise you rep AS.

Re themes, suspect my install is broken from any mistakes I have made trying to fix the default. See "stderr" etc, instead of a normal label.

Nevermind, clearly spending too much of everyone's time on this.

Take it easy

Not a problem AT ALL. I liked the discussion. But ya, I'm a dev at AS.

Carey Hoffman
@th3coop

@inspector71, No time wasted. I'm stoked you're interested in Komodo.

I THINK I see where you're doing wrong. On the left of that screenshot you still have Editor selected in the dropdown menu at the tope. You need to select Interface from that list. Then you'll see the Status:* options near the bottom. Specifically:

  • Status: Foreground
  • Status: Info

Those are likely the ones causing you trouble. And again make sure you "Apply" and "Save" all changes before you close the window. It's unclear to me what exactly you've tried out of my advice so if you could say like "I did this this and this from your instructions and this happened" that would help.

If your theme is busted or something you can always choose a theme that ships with Komodo in the drop down in the middle at the top and start modifying from scratch there to see if you're changes work. I'll make a quick click and see if I can share it showing how I've made the changes

Thanks for the effort but the middle screenshot is missing the right hand side ... kind of crucial :)
Whoops. Would be helpful if gitter allowed message editing. Did not scroll up enough before above message.
Thanks for the nice thoughts about not wasting time.
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
@inspector71 I'm finding it hard to figure out what you need. Have you tried the suggested steps? They should accomplish what you're trying to do with the notifications dialog. If they aren't working, can you say exactly what you're doing? Then we can figure out either what you missed or what might be broken.
inspector71
@inspector71
@th3coop Sorry. Did not 'connect' that you felt this was, perhaps, an 'open ticket / issue' in your work hat context. On that basis, please close the issue. Sorry I did not address this in a more timely manner. I know it is very annoying to have issues open too long.
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
ohhhh haha, gotcha. No worries. I should have clarified if you actually wanted the issue resolved. If you have any other Qs, feel free to ask though, @inspector71 .

Hi all! Small problem, but a nuisance. When komodo shuts down unclean, and I bring it back up, it gives me the "do you want to restore your workspace" message. However, that workspace is from about 7 months ago (!!) not my most recent one. What could be going wrong? Any suggestion for where to look?
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
@markwilkinson, I'm not 100% sure what causes that but you could try running the following in the JS Console (View menu > Tabs & Sidebars > Console) to remove the stale workspace: ko.prefs.deletePref("windowWorkspace")
If that doesn't help, you can email your prefs.xml file to me and I can have a look see, careyh@activestate.com. Details on where to find your profile per OS: https://community.komodoide.com/t/important-file-locations/489
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
Oops, missed half the instructions:
  1. After you've deleted the preference, restart komodo normally
  2. Once Komodo is restarted, force a crash somehow, your OSs task manager is a safe bet.
  3. Start Komodo and confirm it no longer restore the very stale workspace.
Mark Wilkinson
@markwilkinson
Hi Carey! Yes, deleding the old workspace seems to have worked! Thanks!
while I'm here... is anyone working on updating the Ruby debug support? seems that the new version of byebug is problematic with Komodo.
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
@markwilkinson , unfortunately no. Are you aware of the work around to use an older version of byebug?
Mark Wilkinson
@markwilkinson
@th3coop I have tried using an older version, but I still wasn't successful. Is there a specific version that is known to work?
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
@markwilkinson looks like it's byebug 9.1 that is known to work https://community.komodoide.com/t/ruby-debugging-with-komodo-ide-11-1-for-mac/4380/9?u=careyh
@inspector71 I got an email notification that you asked a question i here but don't see it. Did you get sorted out with column select?
Mark Wilkinson
@markwilkinson
Hi Carey. It seems that it doesn't work with that version of byebug either (at least, not with current versions of Ruby). Also, there's a deprecated call to URI.encode that causes an error. Looks like Ruby support is dead for the moment! :-(
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
@markwilkinson yes you likely need to use a version of Ruby that is supported by byebug 9.
inspector71
@inspector71
@th3coop Thanks for caring. Sorry about the spam. Think I figured it out then deleted so I did not look (more) stupid.
OTOH, this appears to be a more genuine issue:
WindowsError: [Error 123] The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect Mon Apr 26 2021 13:11:47
Unsure why I'm seeing that. Maybe causing frequent "Not responding" hangs though likely that is SFTP.
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop
Hrm, i think I'd need more context for that error @inspector71. Is there more in the logs?
inspector71
@inspector71

@th3coop nevermind. I cannot use Komodo. It is freezing (Not Responding) doing things as simple as select, Ctrl + V, right arrow.

Yep, just trying to move to the end of a line to paste something copied from the start of the line.

Do not want to disparage Komodo though as it is doubtless the very hard work of many and perfectly functional for others.

Also, where are the logs? LOL
inspector71
@inspector71
(found the logs, do not include the above error, but does include a warning not to use a function that was moved in version 9, sigh, amongst others.

Here's my "favourite":

[2021-04-29 12:54:57,154] [INFO] Startup: Welcome to Komodo Edit 12.0.1 build 18441 (platform win32-x86, running on Windows post2012Server version 6.3.9600) [2021-04-29 12:54:57,154] [INFO] Startup: C:\Program Files (x86)\ActiveState Komodo Edit 12\lib\mozilla\komodo.exe built on Tue Feb 11 04:14:27 2020 [2021-04-29 12:54:58,230] [WARNING] console-logger: mutating the [[Prototype]] of an object will cause your code to run very slowly;

I mean, that's immediately after startup and there's already a big warning Komodo has a built-in "will cause your code to run very slowly" issue.

inspector71
@inspector71
I better stop now before I might offend someone ( I mean, there's even a simple global CSS font-size error that keeps writing to the log) but FWIW: https://kopy.io/q07yu
Carey Hoffman
@th3coop

I'm confused @inspector71 . If you didn't see that original WindowsError error in the logs then where did you see it? Can you provide more context?

And yeah, you're probably right that your SFTP connection is causing issues with hanging. You could try using Tools menu > Publishing. It's a super handy feature. You can still do one off edits of a file through an SFTP connection but do the bulk of your work locally then "publish" changes as needed.
