Brackets is an open source text editor that makes it easy for you to design in your browser. It has been specially created to meet the needs of web designers and front-end developers. It works excellently in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and has therefore, been built in them. Instead of jumbling up your coding arena with miscellaneous icons and panels, Java offers you a sharp/clearly defined user interface in the form of ‘Quick Editing’, where you can place context-specific code and edit with inline tools. 

The ‘Quick Edit' option can also be of great help in the event that you’re having trouble with code syntax and code options. From working with files to working with directories and even creating new files, this software has all that you might need. Available to this software is a strong extension structure containing many extensions, accessible through browsing or installation from the Extension Manager which is located in the File Menu. 

Why is Brackets Needed?

Coding with Brackets is a great delight as it not only offers a wide range of options as regards extensions but also has a simple interface that you can easily control. The software has a ‘Live Preview’ option that works hand in hand with your browser to expel code edits without delay and give you immediate feedback on any changes made to your code. It also has code completion features that allow you to group applications, swiftly, even without knowing the exact syntax. 

Agreeing with Adobe, there is, therefore, no doubt that you can help build a great code editor for the website, seeing as Brackets is open source and now built into HTML, CSS and JavaScript. 

Key Features of Brackets Include:

  • Has a strong extension framework; 
  • Has a ‘Quick Edit' option;
  • Has ‘Live Preview';
  • Has code completion features. 


All in all, Brackets is an excellent and lightweight open source editor that makes it easy for you to design in the web browser and helps you enjoy writing code. If you’re looking to have better coding experience, try Brackets as soon as possible.
