Raspberry PI Arch Linux visudo (sudoers file) edit using nano

Very Quick one!!!!

To be able to edit visudo using nano instead of vi, is great thing. This is not a permit fix, so you have to do it every time you need to edit visudo after a reboot.

export EDITOR=nano && sudo -E visudo
allows you to edit the sudoers file with nano.

Extra one for you…if you want to edit crontab with nano…
export EDITOR=nano
Will work for this. Same as above, it reset with a reboot.

Till next time, thanks for your time.
