How to open files in the editor from the command line

Hi, I have been trying to figure out how to open files from the command line to both practice my CLI skills, but also so that I can open up the file. Thus far I am having no luck.

Hi @nicholaspowel,

welcome to our community.

There is no easy way (as of today) to open files in the editor using the command line.

What you can do is either click “File -> Open” in the editor, or open the file in the terminal directly using vim .

Please let us know if I misunderstood your question.

Thanks, that answered my question exactly. I suppose I will try getting more comfortable with vim!
