Your module to copy content to clipboard in Angular applications easier 🎯.

Why Copy to clipboard?

This is a common concept, but why use this directive instead solve it via server-side rendering?

The idea of this directive is make this process transparent and easier. So the main point is integrate this directive with other tooling process, such as:

  • Server-side rendering;
  • Progressive rendering;
  • Any other that you like :)

You can integrate with WebSockets or handling this in a EventSourcing architecture. It's totally transparent for you and you can integrate easier in your application.


Try out our demo on Stackblitz!


You can get it on NPM installing ngx-copy-to-clipboard module as a project dependency.

npm install ngx-copy-to-clipboard --save


You'll need to add NgxCopyToClipboardModule to your application module. So that, the <ngx-copy-to-clipboard> components will be accessible in your application.

import { NgxCopyToClipboardModule } from 'ngx-copy-to-clipboard';
  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [YourAppComponent]

export class YourAppComponent {}

Now you just need to add a configuration in your components and, after that, you can use the ngx-copy-to-clipboard component in your templates, passing the required attributes to make it work properly.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'component-docs',
  template: `
    <section class="section">
      <h2>Copying data from textarea element</h2>
      <textarea name="text-content" id="text-content" rows="5" cols="33">
Demonstration content...
export class ComponentDocsComponent {
  copiedText = '';

  constructor() {
    this.onSuccess = this.onSuccess.bind(this);
    this.onError = this.onError.bind(this);

  onSuccess(e) {
    this.copiedText = e.text;

  onError(e) {
    this.copiedText = 'Error trying to copy your text';

You should bind the success and error function callbacks before passing through the component to make sure your component will be running based on the same scope.
