React Native Clipboard API for macOS, iOS, Android, and Windows.

macOS iOS Android Windows

Getting started

Install the library using either Yarn:

yarn add @react-native-clipboard/clipboard

or npm:

npm install --save @react-native-clipboard/clipboard

React Native v0.60+

For iOS, use cocoapods to link the package.

run the following command:

$ npx pod-install

For android, the package will be linked automatically on build.

For React Native version 0.59 or older ### React Native <= 0.59 run the following command to link the package: $ react-native link @react-native-clipboard/clipboard For iOS, make sure you install the pod file. cd ios && pod install && cd .. or you could follow the instructions to manually link the project ## Upgrading to React Native 0.60+ New React Native comes with autolinking feature, which automatically links Native Modules in your project. In order to get it to work, make sure you unlink Clipboard first: $ react-native unlink @react-native-clipboard/clipboard

Migrating from the core react-native module

This module was created when the Clipboard API was split out from the core of React Native. To migrate to this module you need to follow the installation instructions above and then change you imports from:

import {Clipboard} from 'react-native';

to:

import Clipboard from '@react-native-clipboard/clipboard';

Example

import React, {useState} from 'react';
import {
  SafeAreaView,
  View,
  Text,
  TouchableOpacity,
  StyleSheet,
} from 'react-native';
import Clipboard from '@react-native-clipboard/clipboard';

const App = () => {
  const [copiedText, setCopiedText] = useState('');

  const copyToClipboard = () => {
    Clipboard.setString('hello world');
  };

  const fetchCopiedText = async () => {
    const text = await Clipboard.getString();
    setCopiedText(text);
  };

  return (
    <SafeAreaView style={{flex: 1}}>
      <View style={styles.container}>
        <TouchableOpacity onPress={copyToClipboard}>
          <Text>Click here to copy to Clipboard</Text>
        </TouchableOpacity>
        <TouchableOpacity onPress={fetchCopiedText}>
          <Text>View copied text</Text>
        </TouchableOpacity>

        <Text style={styles.copiedText}>{copiedText}</Text>
      </View>
    </SafeAreaView>
  );
};

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
  },
  copiedText: {
    marginTop: 10,
    color: 'red',
  },
});

export default App;

Mocking Clipboard

If you're using jest as a test runner, you will need to setup a mock for clipboard, as NativeModules will be undefined when testing with Jest.

Create a jest.setup.js in your project root,and set up the following to have Clipboard mocked:

import mockClipboard from '@react-native-clipboard/clipboard/jest/clipboard-mock.js';

jest.mock('@react-native-clipboard/clipboard', () => mockClipboard);
