I spend 90+% of my time working in the backend on server sided tasks. Aptana and dreamweaver often get in the way when it comes to making minor changes to a site's front end for testing purposes. Enter Brackets! After using it for less than 12hrs the minimal interface, sleek performance and helpful tools have won me over.

If you're fed up with Dreamweaver or Aptana try Brackets out.

Outright non-functional on High Sierra. Literally graphical artifacts and crashing, cannot open a text file.

0/10 broken abandoned mess
