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!
