Simple Copy + Paste in Python.

Project description

Xerox is a copy + paste module for python. It’s aim is simple: to be as incredibly simple as possible.

Supported platforms are currently OS X, X11 (Linux, BSD, etc.), and Windows.

If you can make it simpler, please fork.

Usage

Usage is as follows:

xerox.copy(u'some string')

And to paste:

>>> xerox.paste()
u'some string'

On Linux you can optionally also copy into the X selection clipboard for middle-click-paste capability:

xerox.copy(u'Some string', xsel=True)

And you can choose to paste from the X selection rather than the system clipboard:

xerox.paste(xsel=True)

And, that’s it.

Command Line

To copy:

xerox some string

or:

echo some string | xerox

To paste:

>>> xerox
some string

Installation

To install Xerox, simply:

$ pip install xerox

Or, if you must:

$ easy_install xerox

Note: If you are installing xerox on Windows, you will also need to install the pywin32 module.
