Getting Started with Adobe Brackets
Brackets is a free, open-source, lightweight yet powerful modern text editor. Adobe has blended the perfect amount of visual tools into the editor so you get the right amount of help when you want it. It contains advanced capabilities like inline editors, instead of jumping between file tabs, Brackets let you open a window into your code when and where you need it. There's also features like Live Preview where you can get a real-time connection to your web browser, so if you make changes to your CSS and HTML in Brackets, you'll immediately see those changes on screen. Adobe has also baked in preprocessor support, so you can now work with preprocessors in a whole new way. Preprocessors have become an important component of many designer's workflows, that's why Brackets is the best code editor for preprocessors out there. In this course, I'm going to give you a quick overview of how you can get comfortable working with Brackets so you can incorporate it into your existing web design workflows.
