sublime.get_clipboard() return file path

sublime.get_clipboard() return file path

Postby Binocular222 on Sat Jan 04, 2014 12:41 pm

The API said sublime.get_clipboard() return plain text. However, when I copy a file, that command return blank (should be file path in this case).

So, anyway can I get file path from a copied file object in clipboard?

This is probably an OS-specific question.

The clipboard implementations on at least Windows and OS X support a data "type", and you can even have multiple different data types on the clipboard at once - e.g. html, plain text, image, file path.

Sublime is probably only requesting the "plain text" data type from your clipboard.

If you're on Windows, you can use the win32 plugin from over here viewtopic.php?f=5&t=15070 for direct clipboard access.

If you're on OS X, you can run AppleScript, Python, or pbcopy/pbpaste in a subprocess to access the clipboard.
