Lightweight copy to clipboard for the web
The goal of this package is to offer simple copy-to-clipboard functionality in modern web browsers using the fewest bytes. To do so, this package only supports modern browsers. No fallback using Adobe Flash, no hacks. Just 30 lines of code.
Unlike other implementations, text copied with
clipboard-copy is clean and
unstyled. Copied text will not inherit HTML/CSS styling like the page's background
Supported browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, IE11.
Works in the browser with browserify!
npm install clipboard-copy
const copy =button
successPromise = copy(text)
Copy the given text to the user's clipboard. Returns
success, a promise that resolves if the copy was successful and rejects if the copy failed.
Note: in most browsers, copying to the clipboard is only allowed if
triggered in direct response to a user gesture like a
'click' or a
comparison to alternatives
Testing this module is currently a manual process. Open
test.html in your web browser and follow the short instructions. The web page will always load the latest version of the module, no bundling is necessary.
