HaveClip - clipboard synchronization tool

HaveClip is a peer-to-peer clipboard synchronization tool. Ctrl+C on one computer, Ctrl+V on another.

Clipboard is instantly synchronized across all your devices. It can handle all forms of text, images and even application-specific data.

HaveClip is multiplatform. Copy something in one OS, paste in another. Supports Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Sailfish OS and Android.

$ tar -xzf haveclip-desktop-0.15.0.tar.gz
$ cd haveclip-desktop-0.15.0
$ qmake (or qmake-qt4)
$ make

You should now have an executable at bin/haveclip.


$ sudo make install


HaveClip runs in the background. There is no window when launched, only tray icon will show up.

Left-click on the tray icon will pop up a menu with clipboard history. Right-click triggers a menu with options. These two menus are merged in one in OS X.

First thing to do is to setup devices where the clipboard will be synced. Right-click on the tray icon and select Settings. Go to tab Devices, click on Add button and follow the verification process.

If the verification process is successful, the clipboard will be synchronized between the two computers.

Please remember, that for HaveClip to work properly, the same kind of encryption has to be used and all computers should have unique private key and certificate.


It is strongly recommended to use the encryption and have unique private key and certificate on every computer. HaveClip then ensures, that the clipboard will be sent and received only to/from authenticated peers (those listed in Devices with appropriate certificates) and that the transfer will be encrypted.

If one does not use the encryption, literally everyone can change the content of the clipboard or receive it without user's knowledge.


HaveClip is released under GNU/GPL.
