Eclipse "Open Resource" in Komodo Edit 5.2

The thing I like about Eclipse is its “Open Resource” shortcut. Eclipse is great, but it always feels… heavy. Plus I can’t get Mint 7/Eclipse 3.5/PHP Developer Tools to play nice, so I’m switching to Komodo Edit 5.2. It doesn’t work so well with CakePHP, but at least there is some code completion. Now the previous version (5.1) was extremely unstable, but the new one is much better, so try it out if you’re looking around for a new editor.

Now, on to the good stuff. You can duplicate “Open Resource” by creating a project and defining a shortcut for Komodo’s equivalent:

File -> New -> New Project

Save the file in the root of your project directory. This allows the entire file listing to show up in:

File -> Open -> Go to File…

Finally, you need to define the Ctrl+Shift+R shortcut for it:

Edit -> Preferences -> Key Binding Schemes -> New…

I call mine “Eclipse”.

In the “Commands:” input box, type “go to”, and then select “Fast Open: Go to File…”.

Restart Komodo Edit, open the project you just created, and then hit Ctrl+Shift+R. Voila.

Goodbye, Eclipse.
