Gave Adobe Brackets a try. Bounced around in my dock then vanished. Interesting project though, your milage may vary

The following errors are listed in Console.app

JakeA: "26/06/2012 16:51:47.490 com.apple.launchd.peruser.501: ([0x0-0x47a47a].com.adobe.Brackets[21306])   posix_spawn("/Users/jakearchibald/Downloads/brackets-sprint-10 (1)/bin/mac/Brackets.app/Contents/MacOS/Brackets", ...):  Permission denied"

[08:51am] JakeA: "LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810 for the file /Users/jakearchibald/Downloads/brackets-sprint-10 (1)/bin/mac/Brackets.app"

To clarify, the error at 08:51am was from running open bin/mac/Brackets.app on the console. The first error is from Console.app. Cheers!

Permissions are Brackets.app are:

drwx------

Was unzipped with Keka

Got this working by unzipping with Finder. It looks like Keka wasnt saving the file permissions when it unzipped the file.

We should add this to a known issues / or troubleshooting wiki page.

i've had the same issue with keka,

chmod +x brackets/bin/mac/Brackets.app/Contents/MacOS/Brackets

does the trick (brackets is the extracted folder of brackets-sprint-10.zip)

I added this to the troubleshooting wiki page.
