Witaker Clipboard Server

A utility for copy and paste in the browser without requiring focus

For security reasons, web browsers don't allow text to be copied to the system clipboard when the browser window is not focused. There are use cases where you might want to copy text quickly by hovering or swiping your mouse over a background window, for instance when testing a web application. This allows a user to "pick up" a test value by hovering their mouse pointer, and speeds up testing.

Witaker Clipboard Server is a utility which provides a local web server for JavaScript applications to interact with, so it can copy text to your computer's clipboard while in a background state. The Clipboard Server will start with an authentication key, which your JavaScript application will need to reference before calling the server.

Features

Witaker Clipboard Server is a Python 3 program, with a command-line application, and a GUI, written with Kivy.

  • witaker-clipboard-server
  • witaker-clipboard-server-gui

At its core is a microservice, written with Flask, which interacts with the system clipboard using xerox.

Installation

You can install Witaker Clipboard Server with pip:

pip install witaker-clipboard-server
