Why I Prefer To Use doas Over sudo

  • 0
  • 1 mins

One of my favorite tools straight out of the OpenBSD community: doas.

Makes me wonder why anyone's still using sudo!

So simple to set up on FreeBSD:

pkg install doasvim /usr/local/etc/doas.conf

I add:

permit nopass keepenv :wheel

Done. Make sure your user is a member of the :wheel group obviously.
