Brackets: An Open Source Code Editor For The Web

Brackets: An Open Source Code Editor For The Web

Next week we have a special treat! Adam Lehman from Adobe will be demonstrating a new open-source editor called "Brackets".

About The Talk

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.

If you love Open-Source, you do not want to miss this talk!

How to Get There

The closest stop is "Downtown Crossing Station" on the Red Line and Orange Line. There are several public parking garages close to our office. Use the map on our website to find us:

    Hello, everyone.

    I just wanted let you know that I will be presenting about TypeScript on Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at the Bocoup Loft.

    For those who don't know, TypeScript is a language designed and developed by Microsoft (with Anders Hejlsberg being the Lead Architect). It is a super-set of ECMAScript version 5 (also known as JavaScript). JavaScript lacks many of the language features that are taken for granted in other programming languages, such as C, C++, C#, Java, et cetera. Simply put, TypeScript aims at fixing this problem by extending JavaScript in a way that allows developers to build powerful applications using the JavaScript they love, but with the added typing, built-in module systems, error-checking, and strong tooling.

    interesting software to watch, but the presentation included ZERO code which was disappointing, I was hoping to see some code and learn new things which I did not.

    Awesome text editor. I've cloned the repo and and started playing around with it since the meetup. I was very surprised to see the live update feature of the editor, that hooks right into the browser. Very cool stuff!
