Lightweight copy to clipboard for the web

The goal of this package is to offer simple copy-to-clipboard functionality in modern web browsers using the fewest bytes. To do so, this package only supports modern browsers. No fallback using Adobe Flash, no hacks. Just 30 lines of code.

Unlike other implementations, text copied with clipboard-copy is clean and unstyled. Copied text will not inherit HTML/CSS styling like the page's background color.

Supported browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari.

Works in the browser with browserify!

install

npm install clipboard-copy

usage

const copy = require('clipboard-copy')

button.addEventListener('click', function () {
  copy('This is some cool text')
})

API

successPromise = copy(text)

Copy the given text to the user's clipboard. Returns successPromise, a promise that resolves if the copy was successful and rejects if the copy failed.

Note: in most browsers, copying to the clipboard is only allowed if copy() is triggered in direct response to a user gesture like a 'click' or a 'keypress'.
