Support for HTML on the clipboard?
I’m trying to place custom HTML on the Pasteboard, for use as a signature in the Mail app among other things.
(The signature uses a CSS background image with Retina 2x versions and other tricks which are lost if I just select and copy it out of another app’s UIWebView.)
It appears that the built-in clipboard support in Pythonista is limited to text and images. Is there a way to extend this to the HTML data type using Python? If not, this is a feature request. :-)
I think this explains what I’m trying to do:
Currently not possible, sorry. I have some plans to extend the clipboard module with custom data types though, so perhaps it will be in the future...
I’d still love to get Web Archive support for the Pasteboard in Pythonista…
Thomas, off topic – could you explain how you use the app HTML Mail Editor? I tried it, and while it can insert custom HTML into the body of an email, I don’t see how to use it to copy HMTL to the Pasteboard as a Web Archive object. As far as I can see, all explicit copy/paste operations in the app use text/RTF objects. That’s OK for simple formatting but will destroy any sort of tricky inline CSS, which is the problem I’m trying to get around in the first place.
