Why ctrlxv?

< Back

First, rude ...
Second, ctrlxv targets developers but this kind of online live clipboard could be useful to other people as well. The name derives from the famous keyboard shortcut CTRL+X / CTRL+V to cut and paste text from one place to another. Apple users might be more familiar with the very similar CMD+X / CMD+V shortcut. Yes, it works like GoogleDocs, but it's got more charm <3 Have you ever remembered a URL to a GoogleDoc? - Thought so ...

The main goal is to make sharing plaintext between devices as uncomplicated as possible - no authentication, no bloat, no bad UX. Just enter the clipboard name and text shows up and saves and updates instantly. To pay for domain, hosting, bandwidth and food a subscription option is available, which allows you to adopt/subscribe to a board (which theoretically could be accessed by anyone) on a monthly basis, which allows its generous and gorgeous adoptee to break free from the chains of character limitation. Choose a more complicated name like "Camcnctbsnimawys" to be sure nobody is messing around with your stuff. Noticed what I did there? The example board name is an acronym of the sentence it appeared in - boom! Board names are case-sensitive and emojis are allowed 😎

Happy pasting!
