copyedit

An easy way to edit your clipboard contents!

copyedit is intended to be an alternative to Text Editor Anywhere

pip3 install copyedit or pip3 install git+https://github.com/Rayquaza01/copyedit

Copyedit uses pyperclip. You may need to manually install additional dependencies, depending on your system.

Usage

  • Run copyedit.py.
  • It will ask for a file extension, create a file with your current clipboard contents, and open the file in your editor.
  • When you close your editor, it will copy the contents of the file to your clipboard

Options

The options are saved in ~/copyedit.json and can be overridden in a config file per folder.

  • editor: The command to run your preferred text editor. The file with the clipboard contents will be passed as an argument. Defaults to vim
  • default_extension: The default file extension to use. Can be changed while running. Defaults to txt
  • directory: The directory to save the temporary clipboard files in. Defaults to ~/copyedit
  • delete_on_close: Whether to delete the temporary file after copyedit finishes. Defaults to false

Arguments

Two arguments are accepted:

  • --blank (-b): make the file blank, instead of using clipboard contents. Will still copy file contents to clipboard after the editor is closed
  • --deleteOnClose (-doc): Delete on close, overrides the config option.
