Modifying Vim to be able editing crontab in Mac OS X Yosemite

Get the solution from Vim Wikia post here, already tried this by myself and worked like a charm :)

If you ever get this error while trying to add cron entries:
crontab: temp file must be edited in place
Then the solution is very simple. You just need to create ~/.vim/ftplugin/crontab.vim and add this one line:
set backupcopy=yes
Save the file and you can try to add cron entry again.


  1. Mp3 juice cc is very demanded, and everybody would like to get such platform. Here you can indeed found better-chosen files.
