Thanks for the tip for 1). But the link that you posted to the Arch Wiki, confirms that (for that specific error message) I first have to remove the conflicting self-installed node and npm before I can successfully install the Brackets package (Atom has the exact same conflicts) :
If you had installed a program manually without using pacman or a frontend, for example through make install, you have to remove it and all its files and reinstall properly using pacman. See also Pacman tips#Identify files not owned by any package.
This is what I reacted to starting with "I think that it's a joke ...". Especially the use of the words "... and reinstall properly using pacman ...". I had node and npm installed properly for a few years. Not on Arch though.

But I have already installed both editors manually now.

Install explicitly npm and nodejs before brackets, and a future
pacman -Rs brackets
will leave them untouched on your system.

I dind't see that you was talking about brackets-git, my fault. That's a totally different package not maintained nor created by me.

1) I successfully installed Brackets manually (without pacman and yaourt) today.

And the following is not aimed at you, but just my opinion :
I think that it's a joke that self-installed node and self-installed npm have to be removed. Only to be replaced by the exact same. I'm a web designer and developer who uses node, npm, grunt, etc many times each day. Why I should remove what's perfectly working and kept up-to-date, for a trial of Brackets is beyond me. Especially considering that uninstalling Brackets (when installed by pacman/yaourt) would also uninstall node and npm. So that I would have to manually install node and npm again afterwards.

2) The package brackets-git says it is for 1.5. It's pulling the latest from Github though, and not checking the md5 sums. That libudev dependency is just out of date.

Anyway, all is clear now. I'm installing Atom manually tomorrow.

Too bad that this all defeats the whole purpose of having a package manager.

Please, before ask for help always try to build with plain makepkg instead of using AUR helper like yaourt.
Your questions:

2) you're trying to install an old version of brackets (1.5.1). Newer version lists the correct dependency (libudev0)

Please send me congratulations and cookies because today is my lucky day.

This package brackets won't install because I already have node and npm installed.

P.S. :
Package brackets-git can't find package in the AUR to build it :

Also, the 2 Atom packages that I tried tell me the same that node and npm are already installed :

I'm stoked.

@4javier hi,there.
Recently i tried updating brackets and got this error:
Running "cef-extract" task
Error: Command failed: unzip -q "/tmp/yaourt-tmp/aur-brackets/src/brackets-shell/downloads/" -d "deps"
Warning: Task "cef-extract" failed.
Aborted due to warnings.

That's a problem of google-chrome package, not of brackets. Ask the maintainer to add the symlink, it could affect any other program that calls chrome executable.
