What do you like best?
In first-hand the think I like the most from Brackets, is its simplicity and way of handling an entire web development project. The fact that you can customize the app so you can feel more comfortable while using it, cause you spend a lot of time on it.
It also offers the possibility to install plug-ins that can make the everyday coding job so much easier and pleasant contributing to save great amounts of coding time.
another big point on its favor is the real-time preview, so it seems to act as a WYSIWYG text editor. allowing you to see how the project is turning out as you type.
What do you dislike?
After using Brackets for almost 3 years, there is very little that I dislike about it. However, it's safe to say that Brackets it's mainly created or targeted to front-end developers (HTML, CSS, JS) and I’d be great to see new features and plug-ins that can help you carry out some Back-end tasks, like connecting to a data base and manipulating its data.
