As you may know, Brackets is an open-source editor for web design and development built on top of web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The project was created and is maintained by Adobe, and is released under an MIT License.

What makes Brackets different from other web code editors?

  • Tools shouldn’t get in your way. Instead of cluttering up your coding environment with lots of panels and icons, the Quick Edit UI in Brackets puts context-specific code and tools inline.
  • Brackets is in sync with your browser. With Live Development, Brackets works directly with your browser to push code edits instantly and jump back and forth between your real source code and the browser view.
  • Do it yourself. Because Brackets is open source, and built with HTML, CSS and JavaScript, you can help build the best code editor for the web.
  • Try out Brackets:

    The official download page provides the DEB packages for Debian / Ubuntu and their derivatives, such as Linux Mint, Elementary OS, and so forth.

    Just download and double click the DEB to bring up Ubuntu Software Center and install it. Or run below commands instead once downloaded:

    sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/brackets-sprint-*.deb; sudo apt-get -f install

    Once installed, you can find it in Unity Dash.
