PyClip wraps the
xclip command-line program on Linux and the
pbpaste programs on Mac OS X and the
paste on Windows to provide an easy python interface to the
system clipboard. To install the library, download the code and run
sudo python setup.py install. You can then use the library like so
import clipboard # copy some text to the clipboard clipboard.copy('blah blah blah') # get the text currently held in the clipboard text = clipboard.paste() # helpful wrapper that passes pasted text through the csv module # useful for dealing with data copied from spreadsheets data = clipboard.paste_table()
Note: If you are using this on Linux, make sure you have the xclip program installed.
