Install text editor

Hi all,

I am fairly new to balenaOS and can’t find any documentation anywhere on how to install a text editor. I have tried “sudo apt-get install nano” in the web based terminal and it returns command not found. I can’t find any documentation on how to install a text editor like vim or nano and would really appreciate some help!

Hi there, by default the vi text editor should be installed for the host OS container. For any other container, you should be able to run sudo apt-get install nano to install nano in that container.

apt-get will only work for debian based containers however!
