Terminal clipboard manager.
What we like
Simple commands to cut, copy and paste. Supports pipe in or out and can read from and write to files (the whole file can be in the clipboard). Use multiple clipboards and show/clear the contents of all. Clipboards exist as temporary files which can be mounted to shared drives to use across systems. Can also make clipboards persistent instead of just temporary.
What we don't like
No support for GUI clipboard manager on Wayland (but supports X11, Windows and macOS system clipboards). Installation defaults to compiling source, but you can download binaries if you prefer.
