      Description

      It would be awesome if we could edit text resources from inside the Karaf shell.

      Why?
      i) Because I won't have to quit the console, or open a new term/ssh session to modify the resource.
      ii) Editing config files via config:edit or jaas:manage, is workable but not perfect.
      iv) Configs are not only cfg files, in many cases we also have xml (jetty.xml, broker.xml, hazelcast.xml).
      iv) Integrating such feature with the url handlers would just rock (e.g. modify the content of cloud blob or a zookeeper znode, without having to manually copy the content locally edit and reupload).

      How?
      I haven't found so far a decent oss console based editor in java. So, our best bet is to integrate with console editors already present in the system (e.g. vi, nano, emacs, edit etc).
