Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install clipboard-rails

Note: After adding the gem to your gem file and running the bundle, restart rails server.

Now you need to edit your app/assets/javascripts/application.js file and add the following line:

//= require clipboard

Usage

Here is the example working code to test with your Rails application.

Add this sample code to your app/assets/javascripts/application.js file

$(document).ready(function(){  

  var clipboard = new Clipboard('.clipboard-btn');
  console.log(clipboard);

});

Note: Here i am using gem 'jquery-turbolinks' for using the jquery $(document).ready function

Add this sample code to your template file like index.html.erb

<!-- Target -->
<textarea id="bar">Mussum ipsum cacilds...</textarea>

<!-- Trigger -->
<button class="clipboard-btn" data-clipboard-action="copy" data-clipboard-target="#bar">
    Copy to clipboard
</button>

Additional information

Additionally, you can define a data-clipboard-action attribute to specify if you want to either copy or cut content.

If you omit this attribute, copy will be used by default.

Full documentation

Read the clipboard.js documentation here http://zenorocha.github.io/clipboard.js/ for full usage information.

Add Tooltips + Highlight animation:

Add Tooltips + Highlight animation with Clipboard.js on button click using Bootstrap Tooltip


// Tooltip

$('.clipboard-btn').tooltip({
  trigger: 'click',
  placement: 'bottom'
});

function setTooltip(btn, message) {
  $(btn).tooltip('show')
    .attr('data-original-title', message)
    .tooltip('show');
}

function hideTooltip(btn) {
  setTimeout(function() {
    $(btn).tooltip('hide');
  }, 1000);
}

// Clipboard

var clipboard = new Clipboard('.clipboard-btn');

clipboard.on('success', function(e) {
  setTooltip(e.trigger, 'Copied!');
  hideTooltip(e.trigger);
});

clipboard.on('error', function(e) {
  setTooltip(e.trigger, 'Failed!');
  hideTooltip(e.trigger);
});
<!-- Example 1: Animation with single button HTML source-->
<button class="clipboard-btn btn btn-primary" data-clipboard-text="It worked!">Click me</button>

<!-- Example 2: with Target source -->
<textarea id="bar">Mussum ipsum cacilds...</textarea>

<!-- Trigger -->
<button class="clipboard-btn" data-clipboard-action="copy" data-clipboard-target="#bar">
    Copy to clipboard
</button>
