A simple, websocket-based, chat-esque solution to copy-paste problems in RDP and/or VMWare.

Uses embedded Jetty and is packaged as an executable JAR using Maven Shade Plugin.

How do I use it?

Download the latest source at:

and run it:

mvn clean package
java -jar target/copypasta.jar 8080

where 8080 is the port that Jetty will listen on.

Then open a browser in each machine you want to send text between and copypasta away!
