What is Python pyperclip?
Python pyperclip is a Python Library that can manipulate the clipboard by enabling us to use the copy and paste functions.
Windows users do not have to download any dependencies, however Linux users need to first install the
xsel library from the command prompt first.
sudo apt-get install xclip pip install pyperclip
pip install pyperclip
pyperclip.copy() is used to copy text into the clipboard.
pyperclip.paste() will return the contents of the clipboard.
The below code will first copy the string “Hello World” to the clipboard. Once the
pyperclip.paste() function is called, the same string will be printed out.
import pyperclip pyperclip.copy('Hello world') print(pyperclip.paste())
Keep in mind that this library functions like a regular clipboard. If you consecutively copy two values into the clipboard, the first will be over-written. A clipboard can only have one value at a time.
import pyperclip pyperclip.copy("Hello World") pyperclip.copy("Goodbye World") x = pyperclip.paste() print(x)
