I’m very excited to be able to publicly welcome Miguel Castillo as the newest Brackets committer. Miguel is responsible for some fantastic Brackets extensions including Interactive Linter, Whitespace Sanitizer, Tomcat Manager, and of course Themes. It’s this last one that has had the biggest impact on Brackets as Miguel recently worked with the other committers to bring his extension into core so we could ship themes as a default feature in Brackets.
It was a huge undertaking and involved a lot of tireless effort on the part of Miguel to refactor his code to fit in with the other core features. But it’s also had a huge impact. Themes was one of the most requested features in the Brackets backlog and since releasing themes in Release 42 we’ve seen lots of themes uploaded to the extension registry.
I asked Miguel to write up a little bit about himself:
Currently, I am a software developer at Symphono. My focus is on web technologies where I get to work on cool stuff like WebRTC and D3 goodness, among others.
I love Open Source, Beer, and most of all, my family.
This brings the total number of community committers on Brackets to 8. We’re looking forward to adding more!
