Thread: New package manager?

    New package manager?

    i've tried to figure out for the last months whats the purpose of the new package manager. It's so confusing and it also lists just a few packages (only the ones i've installed on my) and not the system packages. I'm always using the legacy manager because everything is clear and i'll find all activated addons and can disable them. So i hope the legacy manager will never be removed - otherwise i have to change the editor.

    New package manager?

    All i'm trying to do is to disable most of the unused packages because performance of Komodo is awful (Windows 10). Have to restart Komodo nearly every hour, otherwise it becomes unusable and is freezing up to 5-10 seconds after initiating any action. This topic is still discussed heavily but it seems that this is a fundamental problem of Komodo. Hope that this will be fixed somewhere in the near future.

    Hi, have you been able to identify which packages are causing your slowdowns? That would be good for us to know, as we haven't been experiencing these kinds of issues. Your comments are the first I've seen on this subject.
    By default our package manager does not list packages built into Komodo -- there's no need to disable them unless they're buggy. Those packages provide things like additional menu items, icons, focus mode, database exploring, etc. None of these things run persistently or would contribute to performance issues -- they only run when you tell them to.
    Any concrete information you could provide would help us improve the performance of Komodo. Please keep in mind that 3rd party add-ons/extensions are the source of many potential slowdowns.

    I develop full time on Windows 10 and do not experience performance issues unless there is somethingwrong. Talk to us! We're here to help.
    For example:
    I was building massive amounts of files inside the KomodoIDE git repo on my local machine, creating a huge amount of untracked files. This bogs down the version control widget which is something that we're going to fix (or is already fixed? I can't remember right this second). I moved the files out of the local git repo and things worked normally again.

    So as @mitchell said, if you're having issues and you can narrow it down to an addon please let us know. That would be a bug. Komodo hums along just fine for me with 3 instances running at once.

    thanks for your answer - unfortunately i cant't tell you why or what is causing these performance issues. It was just an idea to disable as much packages as possible to minimize the chances to get stuck in these issues. I haven't noticed a decent performance boost since then, maybe i'll have to work a little bit longer to tell you more.
    It should be considered to also disable built in addons with the new package manager to further optimize the performance because there are many packages i'll never ever need.
