Setting the default editor to nano Linux

January 14, 2016 Leave a comment

In CentOS, the default system editor is VI
If you want to edit the crontab with crontab -e command, the text editor that opens up is VI

In order to change the system wide default text editor to nano, edit /etc/bashrc and put the below line in it at the bottom

export EDITOR="nano"

Exit and login again for the changes to take effect
