This cdist type allows you to select the sensible-editor for a given user.
Name or path of the editor to be selected. On systems other than Debian derivatives an absolute path is required.
It is permissible to omit this parameter if --state is absent.
'present', 'absent', or 'exists'. Defaults to 'present', where:
the sensible-editor is exactly what is specified in --editor.
no sensible-editor configuration is present.
the sensible-editor will be set to what is specified in --editor, unless there already is a configuration on the target system.
__sensible_editor root --editor /bin/ed # ed(1) is the standard __sensible_editor noob --editor nano
This type depends upon the sensible-editor(1) script which is part of the sensible-utils package.
- Therefore, the following operating systems are supported:
- Debian 8 (jessie) or later
- Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) or later
- RHEL/CentOS 7 or later (EPEL repo required)
- Fedora 21 or later
Note: on old versions of Ubuntu the sensible-* utils are part of the debianutils package.
