Course Outline

In this video, we'll gain a basic overview of the free, open-source text editor, Brackets.


We'll learn about Adobe's relationship with it's main developer, Adobe, and the open source community. We'll also have a quick look at Brackets' most attractive features.

This handy PDF summarizes the introductory section on Brackets.

In this tutorial, we will install Brackets on our machine.

Brackets has a unique and lightweight interface. Brackets is designed to "stay out of your way."

To prevent Brackets' many features from going unnoticed due to their covert nature, this tutorial will detail the location and function of all the elements of the Brackets interface.

We'll learn about the Project Panel, the plugin bar, the document panel, working files, and more.

In this tutorial, we will have a look at Brackets' built in file editor. We'll create a new file, write code, and save the file. We'll also look at Brackets' intuitive project system.

Bonus: We'll look at some useful Brackets keyboard shortcuts.

Brackets is the community powered code editor. Plugins are a huge part of the brackets experience.

In this tutorial, we will install a plugin Emmet, and a theme, Black Mint, in Brackets. We will also learn how to remove a plugin.

Clean and error-free code is at the heart of sustainable, complex projects.

Brackets is designed with this is in mind with first-class code linting and hinting, especially with JavaScript and CSS. Learn more in this tutorial.

Navigating a project quickly can mean the difference between lost time and a job well done. Brackets has an excellent navigation menu that we'll explore.

In this tutorial, we'll learn about Quick Open, Go To Line, Show in File Tree, and much more.

Plugins are a core part of the Brackets experience. What better way to expand your Brackets abilities than to learn about some of the plugins available for your disposal?

In this very special tutorial, we'll explore and install some of the more popular brackets tutorials. At the end of this lecture, the user will have Brackets fully integrated with several useful Plugins, including GIT, Minimap, HTML Hint, and more.

From time to time, you'll need to update your plugins to keep them up-to-date.

In this video we will go through the procedure of updating plugins. After viewing this tutorial, users will be able to update Brackets plugins.

In this document you will find a diagram detailing the individual components of Brackets' interface. Brackets has a philosophy of trying to not get in your way. An unintended consequence of this is that some key features are tricky to locate!

Feel free to print out this document and refer to it as often as you like.

The live editor is one of Brackets' most innovative features. It is simple and elegant, but its unobtrusive design means that some developers may not even know it's there!

In this tutorial, we will use the live editor feature of Brackets, and edit code in a CSS file while we have an HTML file open.

Documentation is an important part of any developer's workflow. By using documentation effectively, you can write better code, more quickly. Brackets takes this to a whole new level by introducing "Quick Docs" for CSS, which is basically inline CSS documentation.


In this video, we'll learn how to use Quick Docs while we're writing CSS.

Brackets is a text editor built with JavaScript and CSS. It has great CSS and JavaScript code completion that we'll explore in this tutorial.

In this tutorial, we will use code completion for the Math built-in, Angular and a built-in array.

We will also use CSS code completion for the display property and more.

Live Preview is an innovative Brackets feature that lets you edit CSS, HTML and JavaScript in real time.

In this tutorial, we'll use the Live Preview feature to open our code in Chrome and see our CSS and HTML changes update in real time.

In this short video, we'll take a look at many of the things we covered in this exciting tutorial series.
