Even dough is lightweight, it has some interesting functions, like Code Preview or Quick Edit. Quick Edit offers a simple and intuitive interface, offering the user the needed tools for manipulating the code, while the Core Preview mode allows the user to quickly move through the source code for an easier edit.
The latest version available for the Linux systems is Brackets 1.0, coming with the below changes.
- Configure keyboard shortcuts: Customize your Brackets keyboard shortcuts via a JSON config file. See documentation for details.
- Collapse unwanted Quick Edit results: Quickly collapse results from a particular CSS, SCSS, or LESS file. For example, when using a preprocessor you can hide results from the compiled CSS file to focus on results in your original SCSS/LESS code.
Code Hints & Search:
- url() code hints for SCSS/LESS: Code hints for files/folders within your project, as seen in CSS files.
- New “wordsOnly” setting for automatic word highlighting: See preferences documentation for how to use this setting.
- Improved performance when switching files
- “Show in OS” reveals files in shell file browser (previously, in some cases the file would open in its default instead)
- Translation updates for: Brazilian Portuguese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Swedish
