Description from store # Crouton Clipboard ### Prerequisites * NodeJS * Git ### About Crouton clipboard integrates the Chrome OS clipboard with the [crouton](https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton) linux instance clipboard without running the display (so, only when you use the CLI). Whenever you copy something on Chrome OS, it is automatically written to ~/.crouton-clipboard/data, and whenever you write to ~/.crouton-clipboard/data, it is automatically copied to your clipboard on Chrome OS. ### Installation First you want to clone [Crouton Clipboard&reg;](https://github.com/zwhitchcox/crouton-clipboard) and add `node ~/.crouton-clipboard/server` to your `.bashrc`. You can do this manually, or just type `curl -sL https://cdn.rawgit.com/zwhitchcox/crouton-clipboard/master/install.sh` into your console, and this will be done automagically. Next, you need to install the Crouton Clipboard Extension&reg; which will create a websocket server in the background, and listen on each page for the clipboard event, sending it to the server, which is created by `server.js`. ### Vim Integration I created this for vim, so I didn't have to copy and paste using the chrome interface, so to install for vim, all you have to do is add the following to your `vimrc` ```vim nnoremap "*p :r !cat $HOME/.crouton-clipboard/data<CR> vnoremap "*y :'<,'>w! $HOME/.crouton-clipboard/data<CR> ``` Note: This is automatically done by `install.sh` Then, to copy and paste from the "system" clipboard in vim, just type `"*y` and `"*p`.

Latest reviews (2017-01-29) Isaac Johnson: could not figure out the mapping file. install.sh echoed contents in chroot.. just ran manually. THe data file is propegated so i just use :r ~./crouton-clipboard/data.txt when i need it (usually a password or something one time use, so it dont mind not figuring out the shortcut). thanks!
