What text editor do you recommend

Hello everyone,

What text editor do you use with Linux in the Vagrant environment? You know to edit config files, etc.


@trungEdm I just use vi.

if you haven’t used vi before, it can be a bit tricky and is definitely an acquired taste.

However if you look in the directory where you initially provisioned vagrant from (on your Windows machine for instance), you will notice a directory called shared. If you place a file in there, then it will be moved into the vagrant environment automatically.

It will appear in vagrant in /shared , so you can work on the config files on your local machine (windows), not your virtual environment (vagrant) . This allows you to work with your editor of choice.
