Brackets extension which allows you to use the Tab key to skip any character.
WARNING: Does not work together with other plugins which make use of the Tab key (e.g. Emmet). You could re-map the key binding of the other plugin though. Or -- if you have a Mac -- you can change the key binding to Alt+Tab under "Navigation".
Please use the Brackets Extension Manager to install this plugin.
Press the Tab key to move your cursor one position to the right when you want to skip a character.
| = text cursor
Use the force:
var x = "test|"
var x = "test"|
Indent if there is just whitespace to the left of the cursor instead of jumping outside (. = whitespace):
