== pbcopy.vim - vim interaction with the Mac OS X pasteboard This is a tiny plugin to enable communication with the Mac OS X pasteboard from Vim when running inside a program (such as tmux) which cannot directly interact with the pbcopy command. == HOW TO # Make sure 'remote login' is enabled under Sharing in System Preferences # Yank or delete some text using normal vim commands # Call :PBCopy # Paste into your favourite OS X application # Copy from your favourite OS X application # Call :PBPaste # Put into vim as normal == KNOWN ISSUES/TODO * This plugin doesn't work on OS X 10.5.8. For details, see https://discussions.apple.com/message/11257647?messageID=11257647#11257647?messageID=11257647 If you're running that version, you could try https://github.com/ChrisJohnsen/tmux-MacOSX-pasteboard but I have been told that even this doesn't work. Oh, the humanity! == ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS * Seth Milliken (@sethmilliken) who told me about the workaround. All I've done is take his code snippet and make a plugin from it. * Notch8 for the ability to paste as well as copy. It is indeed nice to have symmetry in life. == LICENSE DO WHAT THE FUCK YOU WANT TO PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, December 2004 Copyright (C) 2011 Tom Stuart Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim or modified copies of this license document, and changing it is allowed as long as the name is changed.
