Hi Everyone,

I'm interested in adding something to the export dispatcher that would
automatically put the exported text (or perhaps even file?) onto my
clipboard.

Preferably I'd like to define this once and have it available to each
backend. So maybe I want markdown this time but rather than to a buffer or
file I want it to go straight to my clipboard. Next time I want HTML or
Plain Text but the same thing.

Can anyone give me some hints on where to start looking for that? Or maybe
it's already been done?

Thanks in advance!

In Christ,

Timmy V.

I guess you are looking for something like
https://github.com/jkitchin/ox-clip.

It doesn't support all the backends you want, but might be a start for
you.  you can also install it from MELPA.

I cannot help directly but I can contribute a random thought: many of
the exporters have the ability to export to a buffer.  Maybe there could
be a hook (there isn't one at present that is appropriate, I think) that
you can add to that captures the contents of the buffer and puts them in
the clipboard?  Or you might be able to "advice" the export (or each
exporter maybe) dispatcher to do so?

Hi Tim,

Funny - just a few minutes ago, before reading your message, I learned
while installing https://github.com/stig/ox-jira.el, about =
org-export-copy-to-kill-ring=:

org-export-copy-to-kill-ring is a variable defined in ox.el.

Non-nil means pushing export output to the kill ring.

This variable is ignored during asynchronous export.


In my brief testing, it does exactly what you want: regardless of the
export output or method (to a file or to a temporary buffer), the result is
placed in the clipboard.

Best,
--Diego

Hah! Good old C-x M-c M-butterfly. I'll have to play with this myself.
