I used Brackets for a good while, even contributed code and helped out on the bug tracker. Heh, I wrote an extension for Brackets that (at last check) had over 9.6K active installations!
That's when I heard of VS Code. I downloaded it to try it out and never went back. While Brackets is geared towards design, VSC is more towards development, which is my area. VS Code also feels more polished and stable. The fact that Brackets 1.8 just added cut/copy/paste to the right-click menu (the Trello card for it was made in 2013, trello.com/c/ZriVEu50/935-clipboar...) makes the VS Code development feels focused and on track. I watched so many Brackets releases pass and features pass by (code for a portable version has been effectively ready since late 2014) while VS Code has focused on usable and profitable features in each version.
In the end, I'd gladly use Brackets or Visual Studio Code. Both are good pieces of software, and TBH, I miss some unique Brackets features.
Jon Blow's JAI is aimed at programmers who care about low-level, performant code, and want to escape the friction of working with languages whose standards have spiralled out of control. If he ever releases it. ;)
