Okay, I’m connected to the MagicMirror on my Mac’s terminal. Is there a way I can now open the config.js file in a text editor on my Mac?
@blacter if u install those other components then you open a sshfs session to have a file browser over the pi disk, then yes,
short of that u have to use the editor ON the pi… text mode
@blacter If you have interest/time … the VS Code editor runs on macOS and has a nice ‘remote ssh’ functionality to edit files remotely. While it has a lot of “programmer” functions, it’s not a bad editor to help anyone. (And this, from a guy who prefers a command line.)
@sojourner Thanks for suggesting this, I am now using it and it makes remote code editing a breeze.
For those wishing to use it, after installing VS Code read this article to enable remote editing.
There’s also lots of other ways to get remote access to the Pi so you can edit with normal editors and save there.
SAMBA (easy, IMO), or other tools to create a share… Just search and ye shall find.
