Bash – Unable to have Bash-like C-x-e in Zsh

bashzsh

I found the following command in Bash which Zsh does not have in the same buttons at the thread.

Ctrl-x-e

It opens the current input in terminal to an editor.

How can you have the same command in Zsh?

I'm using it with VIM mode. Basically ESC-v (or simply v if already in command mode) opens the terminal. It is setup by:

autoload -U edit-command-line
zle -N edit-command-line
bindkey -M vicmd v edit-command-line

Here is how to setup it in emacs mode:

autoload edit-command-line
zle -N edit-command-line
bindkey '^Xe' edit-command-line

Use 'bindkey -e’ to to enable emacs style or ‘bindkey -v’ to enable vi style.
