Maccy is a simple clipboard manager for macOS. It keeps the history of what you copy and lets you easily navigate, search and use previous clipboard contents.

There are dozens of similar applications out there, so why build another? Over the past years since I moved from Linux to macOS, I struggled to find a clipboard manager that is as free and simple as Parcellite. Also, I wanted to learn Swift and get acquainted with macOS application development.
