clipbored - continuously collects all selections in Xorg's clipboard buffers
There are several scripts distributed with clipbored that'll use the history file for different purposes.
dmenurl - launch dmenu with all previously yanked URLs for you to select from.
dmenuclip - launch dmenu listing all previously clipboarded content
sorter - it moves the content to the end of the file after using, so you will have the last clipboarded content in the top of dmenuclip
-l, --last show the n latest additions -c, --clear clear all history -n, --no-daemon do not detach from the shell -k, --kill kill a running clipbored session -h, --help show this help -m, --man display the manual -v, --version show version info
The history file location is $XDG_DATA_HOME/clipbored/clips
The X selection to use can be specified by setting the B
If unset, or set to I
If set to I
To the best of my knowledge, the I
The helper scripts can read properties from environment variables. These are recognized:
CLIPBORED_DMENU_LISTMODE regular/vertical CLIPBORED_DMENU_NORMAL_FG foreground color in HEX CLIPBORED_DMENU_NORMAL_BG background color in HEX CLIPBORED_DMENU_SELECT_FG selected item background color in HEX CLIPBORED_DMENU_SELECT_BG selected item foreground color in HEX CLIPBORED_DMENU_FONT font that will be used CLIPBORED_DMENU_LINES how many lines that will be shown in vertical mode CLIPBORED_X_SELECTION X buffer to use: primary, secondary, clipboard
\ \ | / / \ \ - / \ | / (O O) ( < ) (-=-)
Markus Weimar suggested we should be able to pick the clipboard buffer to use. Since I very rarely use any GUI applications, I wasn't aware of the fact that when CTRL+C/CTRL+V etc is used, it goes into the XA_CLIPBOARD buffer instead of the XA_PRIMARY, probably rendering clipbored somewhat useless to the users using these types of applications. :)
