Brackets: An Open Source Code Editor For The Web

  • Aug 14, 2012 · 7:30 PM
  • Qualcomm Building QRC (Qualcomm Research Center)

Brackets is a new open source project started by Adobe to push tooling on the web forward. Based on the principle that the best developers to build tools for web developers are in fact web developers, Brackets is built in JavaScript, HTML and CSS. MIT-licensed and hosted on github, Brackets is a code editor that challenges the status quo with innovations like inline Quick Editing and live browser connectivity. This session will provide an overview of Brackets and demonstrate how to hack on the project so you can customize and extend it to meet your needs. You can build a better editor.

    The idea of Brackets was interesting, but as there is no linux client, I would personally never use it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
