Clipper is a lightweight clipboard tool that help you record the clipboard history. There are so much tools to manage the clipboard in MacOS but few in Windows. And I found nothing I can install on my company because of IT security reason. Then I decide to create one.
It's build on Java and HTML. I believe running a Java project and open a html in Browser
is much easier and has lower risk than downloading and running an
- Java 8
- Chrome > 61
- External Internet Access (Will remove this requirement in the coming development)
java -jar clipper.jar
in console, then open
http://localhost in browser.
It's worth to introduce some details in IT aspect. When you launch Clipper, you will launch a service who scan you system clipboard continuously. Further, Clipper will start a localhost-restricted HTTP server to serve the web UI.
The interaction between backend service and UI is base on HTTP.
