Downloading Workspaces?

Is there a way to download the program that is workspaces? I have downloaded a couple of different text editors but the ones I have do not seem to be as good as workspaces. Brackets will not let me create folders and move items into folders for a good file tree and sublime text does not have a preview feature.

I am extremely new to development and if there is anything other than workspaces that is at least comparable, I could try it. However, I do love my workspaces!

Thanks in advance!

No, you can't download workspaces unfortunately. And I see you've tried Brackets and Sublime. I love Sublime, personally. But, I understand the want/need to click on a button and have it immediately launch it in a browser. While I understand that Sublime can do this it takes a bit of setup and scripting.

Might I suggest instead NetBeans. I think it might be closest to what you're looking for :sparkles:

Personally, I'm a big fan of NotePad++ and it has browser launching for Safari, IE, Firefox and Chrome, all of which are also hot keyed too.
