       wl-clipboard - Wayland copy and paste command line utilities


       wl-copy  [--primary]  [--trim-newline]  [--paste-once]  [--foreground]  [--clear]  [--type
       mime/type] [--seat seat-name] [text...]

       wl-paste [--primary] [--no-newline] [--list-types] [--type mime/type]  [--seat  seat-name]
       [--watch command...]


       wl-copy  copies  the  given  text  to the Wayland clipboard.  If no text is given, wl-copy
       copies data from its standard input.

       wl-paste pastes data from the Wayland clipboard to its standard output.

       Although wl-copy and wl-paste are particularly optimized for plain text and other  textual
       content formats, they fully support content of arbitrary MIME types. wl-copy automatically
       infers the type of the copied content by running xdg-mime(1) on  it.  wl-paste  tries  its
       best  to pick a type to paste based on the list of offered MIME types and the extension of
       the file it's pasting into. If you're not satisfied with the type they pick or don't  want
       to  rely  on this implicit type inference, you can explicitly specify the type to use with
       the --type option.


       -p, --primary
              Use the "primary" clipboard instead of the regular clipboard.

       -o, --paste-once
              Only serve one paste request and then exit. Unless a clipboard manager specifically
              designed  to  prevent this is in use, this has the effect of clearing the clipboard
              after the first  paste,  which  is  useful  for  copying  sensitive  data  such  as
              passwords.  Note  that  this  may  break  pasting  into some clients, in particular
              pasting into XWayland windows is known to break when this option is used.

       -f, --foreground
              By default, wl-copy forks and serves data requests in the background;  this  option
              overrides that behavior, causing wl-copy to run in the foreground.

       -c, --clear
              Instead of copying anything, clear the clipboard so that nothing is copied.

       -n, --trim-newline
              Do not copy the trailing newline character if it is present in the input file.

       -n, --no-newline
              Do  not  append a newline character after the pasted clipboard content. This option
              is automatically enabled for non-text content types  and  when  using  the  --watch

       -t mime/type, --type mime/type
              Override  the  automatically  selected  MIME type. For wl-copy this option controls
              which type wl-copy will offer the content as. For wl-paste it controls which of the
              offered  types  wl-paste  will request the content in. In addition to specific MIME
              types such as image/png, wl-paste also accepts generic type names such as text  and
              image  which  make  it  automatically  pick some offered MIME type that matches the
              given generic name.

       -s seat-name, --seat seat-name
              Specify which seat wl-copy and wl-paste should work with. Wayland natively supports
              multi-seat  configurations  where  each  seat  gets its own mouse pointer, keyboard
              focus, and among other things its own separate clipboard. The name of  the  default
              seat  is  likely default or seat0, and additional seat names normally come from the
              udev(7) property ENV{WL_SEAT}. You can view the list  of  the  currently  available
              seats  as  advertised by the compositor using the weston-info(1) tool. If you don't
              specify  the  seat  name  explicitly,  wl-copy  and  wl-paste  will  pick  a   seat
              arbitrarily.  If  you are using a single-seat system, there is little reason to use
              this option.

       -l, --list-types
              Instead of pasting the selection, output the list of MIME types it is offered in.

       -w command..., --watch command...
              Instead of pasting once and exiting, continuously watch the clipboard for  changes,
              and  run  the  specified  command  each  time a new selection appears.  The spawned
              process can read the  clipboard  contents  from  its  standard  input.   This  mode
              requires a compositor that supports the wlroots data-control protocol.

       -v, --version
              Display the version of wl-clipboard and some short info about its license.

       -h, --help
              Display a short help message listing the available options.


              Specifies  what  Wayland server wl-copy and wl-paste should connect to. This is the
              same environment variable that you pass to other Wayland clients, such as graphical
              applications,  that  connect  to  this  Wayland  server.  It  is  normally  set  up
              automatically  by  the  graphical  session  and   the   Wayland   compositor.   See
              wl_display_connect(3) for more details.

              When  set  to  1, causes the wayland-client(7) library to log every interaction wl-
              copy and wl-paste make with the Wayland compositor to stderr.


       $ wl-copy Hello world!

       $ ls ~/Downloads | wl-copy

       $ wl-copy < ~/Pictures/photo.png

       $ wl-copy "!!"

       $ wl-paste -n > clipboard.txt

       $ wl-paste --list-types | wl-copy
