Clippy - Helping you copy text to your clipboard

Clippy is a very simple Flash widget that makes it possible to place arbitrary text onto the client's clipboard. This version is pretty much the same as that of mojombo, but it doesn't include the text label next to the icon - instead if saying 'copied!' the icon will simply include a tick. Here is what Clippy (v2) looks like on Codebase:

  • Clippy in action
  • Clippy in action

Here is a sample Rails (Ruby) helper that can be used to place Clippy on a page:

def clippy(text, bgcolor='#FFFFFF')
  html = <<-EOF
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
            width="12"
            height="12"
            id="clippy" >
    <param name="movie" value="/flash/clippy.swf"/>
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="scale" value="noscale" />
    <param NAME="FlashVars" value="text=#{text}">
    <param name="bgcolor" value="#{bgcolor}">
    <embed src="/flash/clippy.swf"
           width="12"
           height="12"
           name="clippy"
           quality="high"
           allowScriptAccess="always"
           type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
           pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
           FlashVars="text=#{text}"
           bgcolor="#{bgcolor}"
    />
    </object>
  EOF
end

Installation (Pre-Built SWF)

If you want to use Clippy unmodified, just copy build/clippy.swf to your public directory or wherever your static assets can be found.

Installation (Compiling)

In order to compile Clippy from source, you need to install the following:

The haXe code is in clippy.hx, the button images are in assets, and the compiler config is in compile.hxml. Make sure you look at all of these to see where and what you'll need to modify. To compile everything into a final SWF, run the following from Clippy's root directory:

swfmill simple library.xml library.swf && haxe compile.hxml

If that is successful, copy build/clippy.swf to your public directory or wherever your static assets can be found.
