    string-editor

    Edit a string using $EDITOR from within your node app.

    npm install string-editor
    

    Usage

    var edit = require('string-editor');
     
    // this launches your $EDITOR with a tmp file containing "hello world"
    edit('hello world', function(err, result) {
        // when you are done editing result will contain the string
        console.log(result);
    });

    Sometimes it can be useful to set an filename to help your editor to enable highlighting etc.

    // we pass app.js as a filename to help with highlighting
    edit('var a = 42;', 'app.js', function(err, result) {
        console.log(result);
    })

    Note that app.js will still be a tmp file
