Today, we’re shipping a new update to Brackets (v1.14) to primarily lend support for Language Server Protocol (LSP). As the web continues to evolve, building support for features like autocomplete, goto definition, or documentation on hover for every language is significant effort. The in-built LSP support in Brackets, unlocks potential for multitudes of developers to bring in support for languages such as PHP, Python, and more. And enable features such as code completion, diagnostic, jump to definition and more.
When writing PHP code in Brackets, you can take advantage of code hinting, function parameter hinting, jump to definition, document and project wide symbols, find references and diagnostic. Please note that this is a reference implementation of the PHP Language Server.
As always, we’d love to hear what you think about the new release and also Brackets in general. We’re also currently running a survey to understand how new paradigms, tooling, and frameworks have influenced the way you work with Brackets – we’d love to hear from you!
We’re back with another exciting update for Brackets! Here’s a quick summary of all the features in Brackets 1.13
Organize Files/Folders in File Tree
Open Remote Files

You can now intelligently rename functions and variables with scope awareness. You can select a piece of code and create a Try/Catch block for it. Convert anonymous expression/function block to an arrow expression in a click. Create Get/Set functions for the selected identifier in context of a class/construct. You can now extract an expression as a variable in the current scope.
Selected code blocks can be extracted as a function in a selectable scope chain with Brackets taking care of dependency symbols parameterization.
Happy Coding !!!

We’re delighted to announce Brackets 1.9 release, an update that is packed with features! As we’d mentioned some time ago, we’re focused on innovating and delivering regular updates to Brackets.
Download the latest version here.
In this update, you can take advantage of:
Most modern-day web developers work with a multi-monitor set-up, where they’re writing code on one and previewing design changes real-time on a browser, on another screen. Connecting these 2 distinct operations is essential to a boost productivity of a developer. With Reverse Inspect, a developer can now quickly inspect his code by clicking on elements in the browser and have corresponding chunks of code highlighted inside of Brackets.
Along with the Batch option to selectively replace, you can now use the Replace-all function to replace all search results at once.
The Brackets Extension Manager now displays download count for listed extensions. And also, the Extensions can now be sorted based on download count or published date in ‘Available’ and ‘Themes’ tab.
You can now change language mode for Untitled Documents. To its end, Brackets provides Code Colors and Hints based on the language mode that is selected for an untitled document.
GitHub Organizations can now publish and own Brackets extensions. All public owners who’re part of the organization can update extensions.

We thank all Brackets users who participated in this survey.
As web technology continues to rapidly evolve, tools and web developers are challenged to stay ahead of the curve – a goal seemingly insurmountable. Understanding the evolution becomes a key factor to achieve this goal, and we are constantly trying to better understand you. To that end, we’re launching the 2017 Brackets Web Tools survey to profile and understand you, and all of the apps & services that you use. Please take part in this survey to help us understand you and your world of web development better! The results of the survey would be published on the Brackets blog.
We just released Brackets 1.8. Download it from here. Brackets has gained incredible momentum in the last few months. Almost 800,000 people are now using Brackets every month. Our contributors have played a major role in making sure it evolves as the leading code editor for web developers.
The current version has a big list of contributions from our community. Special thanks to Martin Zagora for updating the Node version to 6.3.1.

The Brackets team at Adobe had been focussing on bringing in Brackets as the code engine within Dreamweaver during the last 9 months. The team has done an incredible job and it’s being appreciated by the Dreamweaver users. Now that the job is done, we are back with the intent to innovate on features that the Brackets community would love. I cannot wait to announce our 1.9 feature set.
We are excited to introduce the newest committers to the Brackets community. I will let them introduce themselves.
Hey guys, I joined the Adobe Dreamweaver team as a Software Developer this summer, straight out of college. But my relationship with Brackets started way before that. I was lucky to grab an internship at Adobe during the first half of this year.
As an individual, I am passionate about developing things that affect the users directly, and things that provide a creative outlet. I am also an avid reader and sometimes dabble with writing. I am really excited to start this new journey, and hope to learn new stuff.
I am really passionate about learning new Technologies. I am currently working with the Dreamweaver team.
Apart from computers I love Bikes, Road-trips
I am really passionate about solving computational and analytical problems. I am currently working with the Dreamweaver team.
I have also worked in the frontend team at housing.com where I made a 360 degree virtual tour of a house, in which I was introduced to technologies like WebGL(Three.js), CoffeeScript and Webpack.
I started using brackets 5 months back and since then I have loved it for its simplicity, intuitive UI and extensibility.
Please join me in welcoming all the newest committers.
Developers love Brackets and we are committed to making Brackets the best coding editing experience.
