Do you know Firebug? Uh no? Well please make a jump in twentieth century then return here 😛
Firebug has many great features but I love the color preview tooltip, from CSS Tab moving the mouse over a CSS color expression you will see a little box filled with the color found under the mouse pointer.
Every time I edit CSS (and HTML) files from Komodo subconsciously I move mouse over a color waiting to see the tooltip but nothing happens 😦
I’ve realized a macro can do this job so I’ve written ColorInfoTip that adds to Komodo the ability to show colored tooltip.
Some technical detail
This is a macro! No need to create extensions, the Komodo macro ecosystem is very cool and powerful.
The tooltip is a scintilla Call tip accessible from Komodo API.
The macro isn’t perfect and any help is welcomed
- Sometimes the tooltip doesn’t close especially changing editor view
- Moving mouse quickly doesn’t update the color (fixed)
- fill here the bug you found
You can download the macro from ColorInfoTip.kpz then open the file from Komodo to install
