Brackets is a text editor designed especially for front-end web developers. Web development workflow often involves jumping between the HTML, Javascript, and CSS files that comprise a site. Many other editors support this workflow by allowing users to open multiple files in tabs. Brackets supports tabs too, but also provides an "inline editor" feature that can quickly open related files. For example, a user editing an HTML file can place their cursor on an HTML element, enter a keystroke, and Brackets will then open an inset showing all the corresponding CSS for that HTML element. Google Chrome users can also use Brackets' "live preview" feature to watch their code edits take effect in Chrome in real-time. Users working with Javascript-heavy sites may also appreciate Brackets' integrated JS debugging facilities. Brackets can also serve as a general-purpose editor, and includes syntax highlighting for most common programming languages including Python, Perl, Ruby, Java, and C/C++. Brackets is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
