Edit a remote file with vim over SSH


If you have a remote file and you can have a quick edit, if you use the following command:

# ssh -t john@remote-server vim /data/test.txt

You will be prompted to login if you don't have proper ssh key in the remote server, and after finishing editing the file, you will quit the ssh session automatically.
