Download Sprint 22: http://download.brackets.io
Our double-deuce build is now live and ready for download. This release contains a long awaited feature (word wrap) and introduces a new way to install extensions via a url. We also improved the robustness and reliability of Live Development to ensure it works as you expect it to. This release has also been translated to simplified Chinese (zh-CN).
Thanks to many community contributions, Brackets build 22 includes a number of highly requested code editing features. The following editor enhancements may be enabled/disabled through the View menu.
We also improved and added new keyboard shortcut navigation.
Finally, the editor will now auto-insert matching
". This feature is disabled by default, but can be enabled through the Edit menu. This feature is labeled “auto close braces” â€“ in CodeMirror it is referred to as “auto close brackets”, but that sounded a bit scary to put into our UI.
Our new committers led the charge in Sprint 22 and reviewed and accepted their very first pull requests! If a meteor broke up in the atmosphere and landed in the three separate locations of the Adobe committers, BRACKETS WOULD GO ON! In all seriousness, this is a huge milestone and we’re really honored to have such talented developers join our ranks.
Thanks to yodfz, Chema, Antonello and Markus for keeping our translations up to date and a shout-out to Bernhard Sirlinger for crushing so many bugs and refactoring code.
We plan to continue our work on extension management by building a server-based registry for Brackets extensions. We’ll be building the server with node.js and everything will be open source. Keep an eye on the brackets-registry repo for more information. We’re also working to enable the highlighting of HTML elements when using Live Development. Brackets can already do this for CSS, but as you can imagine HTML is a bit more complicated. It’s just one step closer to true as-you-type Live Development for HTML.
