Brackets is a code editor that we can get for our Gnu / Linux distribution for free. Brackets is created by the Adobe company although it is Free Software.
Brackets supports plugins and plugins that allow you to expand its functions and tools, but the most interesting thing is the live view it offers . This function allows us to see any web development that we are editing. It is one of the functions that I like the most about this editor and that makes me choose it before other code editors like Atom or Sublime Text.
Brackets has a live view function that will help us develop our web project
The latest version of Brackets can be installed in our Debian-based distribution, for this we just have to go to the official website and download the deb package corresponding to our platform. But in some distributions like Ubuntu, this installation method can be problematic since Brackets needs the libgcrypt11 library and Ubuntu does not have it in its latest versions.
To solve this problem, we either install the library independently or use a standard repository that solves this problem. Personally I choose the latter and the webupd8 repository, a repository that meets all our demands. So we open a terminal and write the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/brackets
sudo apt update
sudo apt install brackets
With this, the Brackets editor will be installed and after several minutes of installation, we will have it ready to use and to create our web applications. Easy, right?
