Brackets Ungit

Brackets Extension that adds Ungit directly into Brackets.
Runs Ungit as a child process of the Brackets node so you can access it from Brackets or any Browser.

This is not necessarily an alternative to Brackets-Git, you can use both in parallel without conflicts. In fact, I have both installed and use either, depending on the task and context.


Brackets Ungit uses Ungit which in turn requires Git.

  • Git has to be installed on your system before you use the extension.
  • Node.js and npm have to be installed and globally available on your system to install and run Ungit.
  • Ungit will be installed as node_module on the first run of this extension.
