Install Brackets In Ubuntu Via PPA (Open Source Code Editor For HTML, CSS And JavaScript)

Brackets is an open-source code editor for web design and development built on top of web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript, available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. The application was originally created by Adobe, but is now maintained by the community. Brackets comes with some very interesting features, like a quick edit mode (Ctrl +e) that brings the relevant CSS for the selected tag in the main editor or live browser previews – the changes are pushed instantly to the browser (Chrome only), without having to save the changes or reload the page (see video below).Furthermore, Brackets supports extensions for adding extra functionality – more than 100 extensions (at the time I’m writing this article) can easily be installed through the built-in Extension Manager:Brackets for Linux was released back in August and while the Linux builds are practically at feature parity with the the Mac and Windows builds, there are some known issues. For instance, Brackets doesn’t currently use native OS menus so under Unity, the menu isn’t displayed on the top panel. There’s also an issue that occurs when closing the application: you must click the close button twice to get the application to quit.
