How to Install Brackets in Debian Ubuntu and Derivatives

Brackets is a code editor that we can get for our GNU/Linux distribution for free. Brackets is created by the company Adobe although it is Free Software.

Brackets is not an editor of code to use since it only allows to edit files related to web development, although files of programming languages like C or Java can also be created with this editor, but will not enjoy the same features as when we create files php or javascript.

Brackets supports plugins and add-ons 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 I like most about this editor and it makes me choose it before other code editors like Atom or Sublime Text.

The latest version of Brackets can be installed in our distribution based on Debian, for this we only have to go to the official website and download the corresponding deb package to our platform.

But in some distributions as in Ubuntu, this method of installation can be problematic since Brackets needs the libgcrypt11 library and Ubuntu does not have it in its most recent versions.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/brackets sudo apt update sudo apt install brackets

This will install the Brackets editor and after several minutes of installation we will have it ready to use and to create our web applications.
