Scripts that simulate typing the clipboard contents. Useful when pasting is not allowed.

It "types" the contents of the clipboard.

Why can't you just paste the contents you ask? Sometimes pasting just doesn't work.

  • One example is in system password fields on OSX.
  • Sometimes you're working in a VM and the clipboard isn't shared.
  • Other times you're working via Remote Desktop and again, the clipboard doesn't work in password boxes such as the system login prompts.
  • Connected via RDP and clipboard sharing is disabled and so is mounting of local drives. If the system doesn't have internet access there's no easy way to get things like payloads or Powershell scripts onto it... until now.


The Windows version is written in AutoHotKey and easily compiles to an executable. It's a single line script that maps Ctrl-Shift-V to type the clipboard.


###Redux Egghead Video Notes###

####Introduction:#### Managing state in an application is critical, and is often done haphazardly. Redux provides a state container for JavaScript applications that will help your applications behave consistently.

Redux is an evolution of the ideas presented by Facebook's Flux, avoiding the complexity found in Flux by looking to how applications are built with the Elm language.

####1st principle of Redux:#### Everything that changes in your application including the data and ui options is contained in a single object called the state tree

What is Relay?

Relay is a new framework from Facebook that provides data-fetching functionality for React applications. It was announced at React.js Conf (January 2015).

Blog: Moving DocPad Forward, the rise of backend-agnostic GUIs

Moving DocPad Forward, the rise of backend-agnostic GUIs

A GUI, or rather a CMS interface for DocPad is the big next step. It was also one of the first proof of concepts I used to ensure DocPad would be able to scale into the web development platform of the future.

Proof of Concept

Back in the first early months of DocPad, I created three plugins:

  • Authenticate: To authenticate you against the project's maintainers to ensure that you have read and write access
  • REST: Provided authenticated users the ability to update documents via HTTP POST requests using JSON
