1. By "root directory" I hope you mean "home directory", as in /Users/

2. Is editor.sh executable? It needs to be. Make it so by doing this:

cd ~/scripts
chmod 755 editor.sh

3. Is the scripts directory in your path? I modified my path to put
it there, because I found this convenient. If you want to do that
too, you can add a line like this to your ~/.bash_profile:

export PATH=~/scripts:$PATH

Or if you don't want to modify your path, you can change the line
that exports the editor variable to use the absolute path to the script:

export EDITOR=/Users/<yourusername>/scripts/editor.sh
