How to Copy to Clipboard in Node.js (Easy Way)

To copy to clipboard in Node.js, you can use the clipboardy package from NPM. First, install it by running the following command at the root of your project directory:

npm i clipboardy

We can use clipboardy to read or write to the system clipboard:

import clipboardy from 'clipboardy';

async function main() {
  await clipboardy.write('butter');
  const text = await;
  console.log(text); // 'butter'


The module can read/write synchronously as well:

import clipboardy from 'clipboardy';


const text = clipboardy.readSync();
console.log(text); // butter
