Adobe first started development of a text editor for web development on Edge Code, which was discontinued as of November 2014. This was later turned into Adobe Brackets. With the release of Brackets 1.0, Adobe has announced that the development of an open source software is no longer an experimental project. Brackets contains more than 400 requests for bug fixes and new features. Every version of Brackets has more than 100,000 downloads and is currently at the top of the list of GitHubs as of January 16, 2015. The Brackets repository on GitHub (Bracket repository) currently has 150 branches, 108 releases and 17,692 commits as of 5 June 2018 The source code is available under the MIT license.
Brackets provides several features:
When one clicks the respective code snippet in CSS / HTML This feature is termed as Live Highlight. Also, the feature Live Preview in Brackets pushes code edits instantaneously to the browser to present an updated webpage. Brackets contains a Node.js backend that predicts what the code does for the developer types the code. Two scenarios to Live Preview: No [[Front and back ends]
This feature splits the main view into two parts. Users can split the view either vertically or horizontally according to their own convenience, thus allowing users to work on two files at the same time. A different type of file, two files of the same type, or even two different parts of the same file at the same time. Features such as Live Preview and Quick Edit work in both views.
