You may not have noticed, but Brackets has a lot of extensions. These extensions add all kinds of useful capabilities to Brackets (take a look! I bet you’ll find at least one that you’d want). But, I’m sure that many Brackets users aren’t aware of this list of extensions. Even for those who know about the list, it’s inconvenient to install an extension and hard to find out what’s new or keep your extensions up to date.
Our plan covers features that we plan to ship soon as well as features that are a little farther out. The big areas we covered are:
It’s all summarized in the main document, with links to the details so you can dig in if there’s any area of interest for you.
We’d love to know what you think. Many people in the Brackets community have experience with these sorts of systems, and we want to avoid pitfalls or implement best practices you have found elsewhere. If you have thoughts on extension management or assistance you can provide, please let us know on the brackets-dev mailing list.
With research, discussion and implementation of extension management started, we will soon begin a deep dive into how Brackets extensions are written to ensure that we’ve got a solid base for extensions to build on for a long time to come.
