What to default EDITOR in in /etc/profile?

Honestly possibly the biggest decision we will make.

Personally, my base setups symlink emacs to vim. so… I don’t really care what you set EDITOR to.

We need it to point to a shell script that downloads and compiles nano every time it gets invoked

Obviously emacs is the only answer

since rockylinux is going to be a byte for byte copy of centos, the default editor can be found by looking up what’s it set to in centos.

Let’s have vim as the default editor.

we should write our own. If it delays the project, no problem, never underestimate the importance of an own editor :slight_smile:

Teco. The APL of text processing.

Whatever the default is, my first thing after yum update will be a yum install nano…

But, but, but … That makes sense. Are we allowed to be reasonable in this thread?

Why are we not considering bundling Openbox and VSCode in the ISOs? Then, whenever someone uses $EDITOR, it opens a GUI with VS Code open to the file!

Many disable X11Forwarding by default which could be problematic in a remote console session. Clearly we’ll need to make sure X11Forwarding disablement is itself disabled.

Hi all
If we are going to stick to be as close to Red Hat / CentOS as posible lets stay with VIM

I didn’t think this was a serious answer thread lol.

@robb It’s X11 emulated on top of Wayland, to make your desktop environment extra spicy.

And no, everyone, this was meant as a joke thread :slight_smile:

I am certainly not going to be held responsible when someone comes looking for who suggested what I’ve suggested hahaha

I would strongly recommend to port XCode to rockylinux so we can edit more files, not just profile.

So first things first, we need to reverse engineer this stuff.
