This tutorial by techtipz.biz shows us how to install Nano/Pico on FreeBSD from the ports collection.
I’ve never got to grips with using ‘vi’ to edit files from the command line. So one of the first things I need to do is configure the nano/pico text editor so I can properly edit and save out files. Here’s a nice and simple howto get nano running on a FreeBSD server.
Sudo to root and then execute the following command:
cd /usr/ports/editors/nano && make install clean
If you have people who can’t stop themselves typing ‘pico’ to bring up the text editor then you can symlink to the new nano binary as follows:
ln -s /usr/local/bin/nano /usr/local/bin/pico
