Will be nice to be able to copy and past on the "command line".

I tried right click and select paste and works

I am using Mac OSX Lion

Which browser? right-click+paste should work on chrome.

You're right, I just made this test an hour ago.

will be hand to put the combination CRTL / CMD + C / V on the application.
I want to use it to programing on the browser with VIM, and use the mouse to paste code is not so productive.

Thanks, great app by the way.

I wrote a simple chrome extension for it on my repository.

Pasting text into the terminal using Cmd-V is very unreliable. For me it works in Chrome most of the time but fails in FF and Safari. In ajaxorg/ace we use a hidden textarea to capture paste events. Would you accept a patch doing the same for tty.js?

@fjakobs I'd love to get copy/paste working well in tty.js. Is this something you're still interested in? I see that you've figured out copy/paste in ajaxorg/ace - how applicable do you think that technique is for tty.js?

I looked up textinput.js from ace and it looks like it could work.

I tried recreating it with Chrome's developer bar by just adding a textarea to div.terminal. All the text I paste there go to terminal as term.js already listens paste events.

@mmcgrana I'd love to but I'm quite busy at the moment and don't know when I'd find time for that. So I better don't promise anything. If someone else would step in that would be great.
