Live Coding

The live coding extension is built just for research purpose and by no means ready for arbitrary production code. Keep in mind that all source code will be executed on your system immediately, including file access. To get started follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have Node.js installed.
  2. Download the zip file below.
  3. Open Brackets, navigate to Help -> Show Extensions Folder
  4. Navigate to the disabled folder inside the extensions folder and unzip the package there.
  5. Symlink the Brackets-Plugin folder to the user folder inside the extensions folder. Assuming you navigated to the extensions/user folder:
    ln -s ../disabled/live/Brackets-Plugin live
  6. Navigate back to the folder extensions/disabled/live/backend/server.
  7. Install the required node modules by running
    npm install
  8. Start the node.js server by running
    node server.js
  9. Now restart (or reload) Brackets to see live coding in action.
