We know we can edit files via
scp in Vim as we’ve seen in: Vim SSH.
$ vim scp://user@host//path/to/file/file.extension
Editing files on vagrant virtual machine is a little bit harder to achieve.
ssh into vagrant (along with option
vagrant ssh) after adding our
ssh public key:
$ ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub -p 2222 vagrant@localhost
More info about this: Add SSH Public Key to Vagrant
However we can’t add these flags to
scp. So what is the solution then?
The solution is adding ssh config file as we’ve seen in SSH Config:
Host vagrantlocal HostName localhost Port 2222 User vagrant IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub PasswordAuthentication no
After that we can remotely edit files:
$ vim scp://vagrantlocal//path/to/file/file.extension
