My favorite editor is vim, but some others prefer nano, or emacs, nano reminds me WordStar, anyway.
Cron job default editor which is invoqued by the command crontab -e is vi, while I prefer vim, and you may prefer nano, you can use this command.
env EDITOR=nano crontab -e
or as I usually do:
env EDITOR=vim crontab -e
I'm trying to set a 'default' syntax highlighting scheme for nano when I'm editing files with no extension such as /etc/nginx/sites-available/default or /etc/ssh/sshd_config but I can't seem to make it work.
I've copied the c syntax highlighting file into /usr/share/nano/default.nanorc and then added include "/usr/share/nano/deafult.nanorc" to my ~/.nanorc file but I'm still not getting highlight
Just a short Tutorial today. It’s surprising how many people do not know this. To change the hostname under Linux, open a terminal window. Type the following code.
sudo nano /etc/hosts
and change the text to your new hostname. Changes will take effect on Restart.
nano has a useful bit of syntax highlighting that actually highlights whitespace (tabs and spaces), under two conditions: (1) the whitespace does not have a non-whitespace character between either the last character or the beginning of the line and it, and (2) that the file is source code and not plain, plain text (as in a shopping list). How can I emulate this kind of behavior in vim?
