Package Manager Integration

Komodo (IDE only) provides Package Manager integration through the Shell Scope. It effectively provides a way of working with package managers without having to execute multiple commands as a reference for the actual command that you wish to execute. For example you could run npm install and Komodo would automatically show you a list of possible packages to install. You do not need to run npm search or visit the npm archive in your browser to reference package names.

Supported Package Managers

  • bower
  • composer
  • cpanm
  • docker
  • gem
  • npm
  • yarn
  • pip
  • pip3
  • ppm
  • pypm
  • pypm3


Commando tries to find each package manager on your PATH, however you may wish to configure your package managers manually if they are not on your PATH or if you have multiple versions installed. To do this navigate to the preferences for the language which you want to configure the package manager for. In there should be a field allowing you to explicitly define the package manager location. For example to configure NPM I would go to Preferences > Languages > Node.js > NPM Location.
