Copy the clipboard from a remote device.
Action Directory link: https://actions.getdrafts.com/a/1I5
This action is handy for copying text from a remote device if you don’t have access to something like Universal Clipboard. When modifying short scripts, I find this action faster than saving to and import from the cloud.
Enter the address of the remote device in the first script step of the action.
You’ll need a simple helper script on the remote device to receive an HTTP request and return the clipboard.
If you have Python, install
pyperclip and try the following script.
#!/usr/bin/env python PORT_NUMBER = 8080 import pyperclip from BaseHTTPServer import BaseHTTPRequestHandler,HTTPServer class S(BaseHTTPRequestHandler): def do_GET(self): self.send_response(200) self.send_header('Content-type','text/plain') self.end_headers() self.wfile.write(pyperclip.paste()) HTTPServer(('', PORT_NUMBER), S).serve_forever()
