This is a multi-platform clipboard library in Go.

Abstract

  • This is clipboard library in Go, which runs on multiple platforms.
  • External clipboard package is not required.

Supported Platforms

  • Windows (Pure Go)
  • macOS (required cgo)

⚠WIP⚠

  • Linux, Unix (X11)

Unfortunately, I don't think it's feasible for Linux to build clipboard library, because xclient needs to be referenced as a daemon in order to keep the clipboard data. This approach is the same for xclip and xsel.

Go has an approach to running its own programs as external processes, such as VividCortex/godaemon and sevlyar/go-daemon. But these cannot be incorporated as a library, of course. xclip and xsel can also be achieved because they are completed as binaries, not libraries.

So it turns out that it is not possible to achieve clipboard in Linux as a library.

Installation

go get github.com/d-tsuji/clipboard

API

package clipboard

// Get returns the current text data of the clipboard.
func Get() (string, error)

// Set sets the current text data of the clipboard.
func Set(text string) error
