Param2Clipboard

A MacOS application to grab an argument and set system Clipboard as per argument text.

How it works?

Under the hood it’s invoking pbcopy as below:

#!/bin/bash

if [[ -z "$1" ]]
then
  osascript -e 'display notification "Nothing copied!" with title "Param2Clipboard"'
else
	echo "$1" | pbcopy
	osascript -e 'display notification "Parameter copied to the Clipboard!" with title "Param2Clipboard"'
fi

The script has been wrapped into MacOS app using Platypus:

Eventually, registered required URL Types in Info.plist. Unfortunately, it was a manual process which has to be repeated every time when a new app is created using Platypus:

Why created?

Created to improve workflow when opening Microsoft Skype or Lync meetings.

Flow I’m using:

Broswer Fairy configuration

In order to capture opening of Skype/Lync URLs, I’m using Browser Fairy which is registered as a default app to open all URLs. Each URL is matched against defined list of patters and if a Skype URL is detected, the URL is passed to Param2Clipboard app.
