Day#27: Brackets – a modern text editor

I use Brackets as a text editor for my web development. So far, my experience with Brackets has been good. It functions well and never breaks. It has minimal layout and allows us to split panels. For example, we can use the right panel for editing HTML and the left panel for CSS.

As stated on brackets.io, “Brackets is a modern text editor that makes it easy to design in the browser.” We can use it for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP.

Brackets enables inline editing, the function I love most. I can select classes or ids on HTML and edit CSS right in that line. It eases the workflow. What I do often when looking for the elements I want in an overwhelming file is to use the search function “command + F”, then type in the keyword and tab through the highlighted results till I find what I want. 

There are more resources about Brackets and extensions that can simplify or speed up your code editing. Check out Brackets Extensions.
