Install the latest Brackets build (this gives you the native shell binaries which you'll use in step 6)
Fork the brackets repo
Clone your fork of the repo: git clone https://github.com/<username>/brackets.git
Fetch submodules: cd brackets and git submodule update --init
Install npm dependencies: npm install
Add an "upstream" remote: git remote add upstream https://github.com/adobe/brackets.git
Run setup_for_hacking script:
Now, when you launch the Brackets app it will load your git copy of the source code, rather than the original source code that was distributed with the installer. It will share the same preferences & set of installed extensions that a regular installed build would use.
Making changes is simple:
For more in-depth instructions see "Getting a Copy of the Code" below.
For hacking on the native code or building the app binaries yourself without running an installer, see "Hacking on brackets-shell" below.
