You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to download the Brackets HTML Editor application. Brackets is an application that allows you to quickly and easily edit web page source code, which is commonly referred to as HTML.
This concludes our tutorial on how to download and install the Brackets HTML code editor
We've also shown you how to add that to your Start menu and your taskbar. If you have any questions or comments about this application, or you have questions about this tutorial, please let us know in the section below. We'll be happy to get back with you. As ever, thanks for choosing VisiHow and have a great day.
Then of course is the main section, where we have each area of code in a given area
One of the great things about Brackets, which we're going to discuss now in terms of getting started, is that once we've created an element in Brackets, we have our opening tag, which is discussed in our other tutorial, and our closing tag.
This enables us to focus on the "body", and we can then move through that one piece at a time
The reason that this is particularly important, especially in Brackets, has to do with the fact that this is a real-time code editor. That means we can launch a web page, and we can actually edit the code of the web page in real time and see the changes as we make them, rather than having to save, refresh or restart. Additionally, we have advance functionality, such as setting up split Windows. These will allow us to, for example, view a webpage where we're working on the HTML code itself, and also view any attached supporting files, such as a CSS document, which may be dictating alignment or commands for the headers, or anything else we may have that adds custom formatting to the overall site we're working on.
If we double-click on the file, it will move up into Working Files"
This is great because maybe we have several pages on a website that we're working with. Each time we create a page, we're adding another page into the lower section on Brackets. The "Working Files" are the ones that we're actually working on.
We'll discuss in more detail how to edit this in the next tutorial, where we will demonstrate how the live function of the code editing works. We'll discuss plug-ins as well in the following tutorial. Make sure to check out both of those.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about this or other parts of our tutorials, let us know in the section below. As ever, have a great day, and we look forward to seeing you in our other videos.
The third and easiest way to launch the file is by using an icon on the far right side of the file window
It's a little lightening bolt, which is "Live Preview". When we click on that lightening bolt icon, it's going to launch the "Live Preview" of the existing HTML code in our "index.html" page. It's important to note that we need to have the Google Chrome browser installed. However, it will not disturb our existing Google Chrome instance when we launch the "Live Preview".
This concludes our tutorial on quickly viewing associated CSS with tags in an HTML document when using the Brackets code editor for Windows
If you have any additional questions, comments or suggestions about this tutorial, please leave them in the section below. As ever, thanks for choosing VisiHow, and make sure to let us know if you need help with anything else. Have a great day.
You're watching VisiHow. In this section of this tutorial, we are going to show you how to use the Brackets HTML code editor to split Windows and work across two files at the same time. This is particularly helpful if you're working in a CSS file, or something to that effect, and you're also editing your main HTML file for whichever page it happens to be.
Find the option in the navigation bar along the top of the screen called "Navigate"
Directly under this, there are two icons. The right icon, next to the one that looks like a gear, is the icon we want. It is a graphic representation of a horizontal split, which is how the page is split right now. Click on it for more options.
Find line 38. We can see that we have the code listed there, exactly as it appears on the left. This is a convenient and easy way to edit documents. If we were more old fashioned or less comfortable using a modern code editor like Brackets, then this is something that would be especially helpful. For everyone else, especially those just learning, it is an excellent way to get started. We strongly recommend it.
