Package description

What is clipboardy?

The clipboardy npm package allows for copying to and pasting from the system clipboard in Node.js applications. It provides a simple interface to interact with the clipboard on different operating systems.

What are clipboardy's main functionalities?

Copy text to clipboard

This feature allows you to copy text to the system clipboard. The `writeSync` method is used to synchronously write text to the clipboard.

const clipboardy = require('clipboardy');
clipboardy.writeSync('Text to copy');

Paste text from clipboard

This feature allows you to paste text from the system clipboard. The `readSync` method is used to synchronously read text from the clipboard and store it in a variable.

const clipboardy = require('clipboardy');
let text = clipboardy.readSync();
console.log(text);

Copy text to clipboard asynchronously

This feature allows you to copy text to the clipboard asynchronously. The `write` method returns a promise that resolves when the text has been copied.

const clipboardy = require('clipboardy');
clipboardy.write('Text to copy').then(() => {
  console.log('Text copied!');
}).catch(err => {
  console.error('Failed to copy text:', err);
});

Paste text from clipboard asynchronously

const clipboardy = require('clipboardy');
clipboardy.read().then(text => {
  console.log('Pasted text:', text);
}).catch(err => {
