FreeBSD - Change default text editor

Recommended Posts

Hello community!

This guide is for those who want to edit the default FreeBSD text editor.

I will use the nano editor in the explanation but it is optional.


pkg install -y nano

whereis nano

[email protected]:~ # whereis nano
nano: /usr/local/bin/nano /usr/local/man/man1/nano.1.gz
[email protected]:~ #

setenv EDITOR /usr/local/bin/nano

To check if the editor has been changed, we will, for example, open the cron file:
crontab -e
