In the server Clippy supports writing and reading from the clipboard. It uses system tools for this:

  • On Mac uses pbcopy/pbpaste
  • On windows it embeds a copy/paste tool win-clipboard
import 'package:clippy/server.dart' as clippy;

main() async {
  // Write to clipboard
  await clippy.write('');
  // Read from clipboard
  final clipboard = await;  

See example/server

Browser #

In the browser Clippy supports writing and listening to paste events.

import 'package:clippy/browser.dart' as clippy;

main() async {
  // Write a string to clipboard
  await clippy.write('');
  // Write text from an element to clipboard
  await clippy.write(element);
  // Write current selection to clipboard
  await clippy.write();
  // Listen to paste event
  clippy.onPaste.listen((text) => print('OnPaste: $text'));

See example/web
