Brackets Shortcuts

This page is to document which Shortcut keys are being used by Brackets. Since documenting a software project which is under development will be hard to keep up-to-date, I wrote a Brackets Shortcuts Extension to generate a list of the current set of shortcuts defined to Brackets.

This extension displays all shortcuts defined for:

  • Brackets
  • CodeMirror (which not overridden by Brackets)
  • Extensions which are currently installed

So, I loaded up all of the extensions currently listed on the Brackets Extensions page, started up Brackets, opened the Shortcuts Panel (via Help > Display Shortcuts), opened up a new page, and the clicked the "Copy to Current Document" to create the table below.

So, if you create a new extension for Brackets, follow the same process and add rows to the table to show which shortcuts you are using.
