Setting up environment trouble

Can I use vscode for this course, how do I set up brackets and web server for chrome(200 ok) to work interactively?

I cannot answer about brackets, but VScode can be used to write the code. Some functions require to run a webserver, which can be done either using npm lite server or also the VSCode Live Server plugin.
if you want to debug within Chrome, then the developer tools allow you to do the debugging of the javascript directly within chrome.
