Can we get nano on pfSense?
I know messing with configuration files and such should essentially be completely unnecessary, but who knows into what pickle I'm able to put myself, and having a text editor has been useful on occasion.
Problem: vi and I don't mix.
Not trying to get into an editor war, but could we please have some option of a small visual editor installed on pfSense other than vi?
just install nano from freebsd ports, I have it running on my pfsense box
[2.0-RC1-IPv6][email@example.com]/root(3): pkg_info | grep nano
nano-2.2.4_1 Nano's ANOther editor, an enhanced free Pico clone
Try ee is simple and does the job
You can, we're not going to build it in by default. pkg_add -r nano
Thanks, got nano installed, just wasn't sure if it was safe.
If I had known about ee I would have skipped that, but now I have plenty of choices ;)
Stumbled in here browsing the forum & this thread was helpful 2-fold: Hadn't used ee before & vi on pfsense didn't seem to work like vi I was used to from centos plus the pkg commands are handy to know as I've been used to yum so thanks. :)
