    Ditto is an extension to the Windows Clipboard. You copy something to the Clipboard and Ditto takes what you copied and stores it in a database to retrieve at a later time.

    Looks like some sort of clipboard manager? I use Ditto, it's free I think and you can customize it to do all sorts of things with text/images you copy to the clipboard. https://ditto-cp.sourceforge.io/

  • wl-clipboard

    Command-line copy/paste utilities for Wayland

    Project mention: Announcing zp: zp is a cli command to copy the contents of the source file or of the std output buffer to the clipboard, allowing users to easily paste the contents into another file or program | reddit.com/r/rust | 2023-04-13

    This is just kinda how wayland works. The way wl-clipboard handles it is it forks off and stays in the background. That process is what serves the clipboard requests.

    Project mention: Warp? A terminal behind login popup | dev.to | 2023-06-01

    My journey of using terminal emulators began together with my introduction to Linux about 7 years ago. GNOME terminal was my first as it came pre-installed on Ubuntu, my first Linux distribution. Since then, I've had the opportunity to explore and utilize a range of terminal emulators, including Alacritty, Kitty, st, Konsole, xterm, and most recently iTerm2. It's been interesting to experiment with these different emulators, each offering its unique features (or similar however with each with personal touch), user interfaces, and performance benchmarks. Just the other day, a new terminal emulator caught my attention: Warp Terminal. My curiosity won, and Warp was downloaded, this short blog are my thoughts about Warp terminal. At the moment there is only support for macOS, however linux and windows builds are on the way.

  • meshboard

    distributed clipboard with mesh networking

    Project mention: Clipboard integration between tmux, nvim, zsh, x11, across SSH sessions | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-07-09

    I also recently wrote some software to make the clipboard work the way I wanted.


    Distributed clipboard, mesh networking, xorg and Wayland integration. tmux and vim would also make sense, as OP has done, though I haven't gotten there yet.
