Lately I've been doing this a lot:
- need some text based on some font data
- write some code to print some text based on some font data
- run the code
- select the text in the output
- copy the text
- paste the text where I need the text
I got tired of this, so I added some startup code* to RoboREPL that establishes some always-available functions to ease my laziness:
from AppKit import NSPasteboard, NSPasteboardTypeString def toclipboard(text): pasteboard = NSPasteboard.generalPasteboard() pasteboard.declareTypes_owner_([NSPasteboardTypeString], None) pasteboard.setString_forType_(text, NSPasteboardTypeString) def fromclipboard(): pasteboard = NSPasteboard.generalPasteboard() text = pasteboard.stringForType_(NSPasteboardTypeString) return text
Then, paste it with ⌘V.
Maybe something like this could be injected into the namespace in which all scripts are executed and/or added to mojo†?
† …if something like this isn't already in mojo.
