For those Komodo users that are working with CakePHP and have thought "there has to be a better way", Matt Curry has created a screencast showing a few helpful hints on developing in popular IDE.
I suck at screencasts; I know this. If I keep doing them, I’m bound to get better, right? Is it possible to get worse at something the more you do it? Anyway, I made a quick screencast showing off some CakePHP features with Komodo IDE. Leave a comment with your favorite CakePHP related IDE trick.
He talks about the "automatic" auto-completion the IDE can do once its scanned the CakePHP source, how Komodo knows about properties in the classes as well as helpers and how to set up the Bake and Cake commands as shortcuts for quick access.
