I consistently struggle with which text editor to be my favorite.

Today, I tried Brackets, and I think it will stand out to be best for modern web development.

I still use sublime text, and also think I will buy JetBrain WebStorm someday for Node.js development.

Why Brackets

This text editor from Adobe is very amazing as a product, and as an open-source project:

  • It’s Live Preview of HTML/CSS on the browser is instanteneous, not even a refresh!

  • The Mac app itself is built uing HTML, CSS and Javascript

  • And you can dig into the source code

  • There is a community of people on their Trello board

  • It has a lot of extensions

  • For example, the popular Emmet extension to expand abbreviations

  • Or built your own extension easily
