For web devs, a smart & powerful text editor is the most essential. The codes of a website are saved into plain text files with different file extensions, that’s all. Brackets is a really powerful, flexible and highly user-friendly text editor for every programmer. Developed by Adobe, Brackets is really awesome.

Brackets features

Dreamweaver is the ultimate weapon of every web developer’s arsenal. However, it’s a paid software and requires Windows. The web platform is mostly developed on Linux, so having a nice text editor is a great relief. For any programmer, Brackets is a suitable choice. There are many reasons why you should start using Brackets.

  • Lightweight
  • Inline editor
  • Tons of handy add-ons in the collection
  • Live preview
  • Preprocessor support (SCSS, LESS etc.)
  • Beautiful theming

How to install Brackets

For Windows users, Brackets is easily available as an installer. Get it on Brackets official site.

However, for Linux users, Brackets has to be installed through some difficulties. Don’t worry, as they’re quite simple.

  • Ubuntu + Ubuntu-based

Ubuntu is the most popular & user-friendly Linux distro of all. Moreover, tons of other distros also use Ubuntu/Debian as the base. If your Linux distro is based on Ubuntu/Debian, follow these steps.

  • Run the following commands:
cd ~/Downloads
sudo dpkg -i Brackets.Release.1.12.64-bit.deb

sudo apt install -f
  • Fedora

Adobe didn’t make any official edition for Fedora, unfortunately. However, thanks to some really dedicated users, it’s available to install.

At first, enable the “Copr” repository on Fedora.

sudo dnf copr enable mosquito/brackets

Then, install Brackets.

sudo dnf install brackets
  • Arch Linux

For Arch & Arch-based distros, follow these steps to install Brackets.

sudo Pacman -S git
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/brackets-bin.git


cd brackets-bin
makepkg -si

sudo ln -s /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome /bin/google-chrome

Note that Brackets use Google Chrome for “Live Preview” feature. You need to install Chrome for having error-free usage.

Alright! It’s time to code with Brackets, folks!
