Macruby Clipboard / Pasteboard
I am currently working on a macruby app for OS X and I needed to read off the Clipboard (aka “Pasteboard” in OS X parlance). At first, I started reading the nutty Cocoa native implementation… but it did way more than I needed and was far more complex than I wanted. I found this little gem though and thought I’d share it with you. We can do it easily in the Ruby half of macruby!
IO.popen('pbpaste') do |clipboard| puts clipboard.read end
If you want to write:
IO.popen('pbcopy', 'w').print "Text to go on clipboard"
