Adobe has today launched a new open source text editor called Adobe Brackets which has been designed to provide users with a lightweight, yet powerful, modern text editor that can be used by web designers and developers.
Adobe Brackets includes a number of great features for users including the ability to use the Extract for Brackets, a preview extension lets you pull out design information from a PSD.
This neat feature allows colours, fonts, gradients, and measurement information as clean, minimal CSS via contextual code hints within Brackets. Adobe explains :
“Extract for Brackets (Preview) speeds up the process of pulling design information like colors, fonts, and measurement info out of a PSD and turning it into clean, minimal CSS. When we first started Brackets we wanted to release early and often.
We did both. This will mark the 45th release of Brackets in 3 years. In those early releases we acknowledged that there were a number of features Brackets was missing so we warned that it was still early and not necessarily ready for every day use. But in the past 3 years we’ve been very busy adding features to help make Brackets a world class text-editor. Declaring this release as 1.0 is our way of telling the world that Brackets is ready.”
