Maybe this is just me being very dumb but when I do this:

crontab -e ~ 2
no crontab for Jonathan - using an empty one
/bin/sh: /bin/vi: No such file or directory
crontab: "/bin/vi" exited with status 127

Here is my pact show where I have vim installed (vi is aliased to vim in babun via PR 129 #129)

How about under /bin you link the vim as followed:
ln -s /bin/vim.exe vi.exe

Works but figure might be nice to have a prebaked solution to just doing that.

This issues still exist in 1.2:

babun version 1.2.0
Created and maintained by Tom Bujok (@tombujok)

antho@stratus  /etc/cron.daily  crontab -e
no crontab for antho - using an empty one
/bin/sh: /bin/vi: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
crontab: "/bin/vi" exited with status 126

"ln -s /bin/vim.exe vi.exe" still gives error but "export EDITOR=vim" fixs it.
