Brackets vs SVN (Subversion): What are the differences?

Developers describe Brackets as "A modern, open source text editor that understands web design". With focused visual tools and preprocessor support, Brackets is a modern text editor that makes it easy to design in the browser. Try Creative Cloud Extract (preview) for Brackets for an easy way to get clean, minimal CSS straight from a PSD with no generated code. On the other hand, SVN (Subversion) is detailed as "Enterprise-class centralized version control for the masses". Subversion exists to be universally recognized and adopted as an open-source, centralized version control system characterized by its reliability as a safe haven for valuable data; the simplicity of its model and usage; and its ability to support the needs of a wide variety of users and projects, from individuals to large-scale enterprise operations.

Brackets and SVN (Subversion) are primarily classified as "Text Editor" and "Version Control System" tools respectively.

"Beautiful UI" is the primary reason why developers consider Brackets over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use" was stated as the key factor in picking SVN (Subversion).

    I use Git instead of SVN (Subversion) because it allows us to scale our development team. At any given time, the Zulip open source project has hundreds of open pull requests from tens of contributors, each in various stages of the pipeline. Git's workflow makes it very easy to context switch between different feature branches.

    My current work has taught me so much of SVN. Though it is classic and has own pros and cons, I like it too specially the way it handles and tracks the edits with revision numbers and merge techniques.
