Brackets Reviews

Good for static web pages

about Brackets · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

This app is really good for editing static HTML pages, but not much more (at least in its current iteration). For instance, I develop in Magento in my day job and was not able to fit Brackets into my workflow at all, except once in awhile when prototyping mockups for clients. Given that it's still in beta, it's got a lot of potential. Features such as inline editing, color picker integration, live previews, and a browser-like plugin system are all innovative features that you won't find on most other editors. However, it's still missing a lot of basic features like a command to convert text to upper/lower case. I'm blown away that the app was built using just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

A warning on memory usage: this app gobbles up memory almost as fast as Chrome. I've been editing in it for the past 30 minutes and it is already using over 120 MB of RAM (~20 MB for the main app process and ~100 MB for a background process).

Brackets makes web development tangible

about Brackets · · Helpful Not helpful

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.

Yea i might give it a go
