Is there a web-app that lets me paste some text in and send it to another computer on my network with?

I basically want a really quick and easy way to send my clipboard to another computer -- something like https://send-anywhere.com/, but for text rather than files.

I do not want to have to install anything extra; it should work on my browser via a webapp.

  • So it may send that clipboard data to a server? Commented May 2, 2016 at 21:30
  • Are browser addons ok or not? There's clipbrd.com for Chrome. Does it need to preserve formatting of the clipboard or is pure text ok? Don't you think a webapp/browser addon is quite insecure for doing that kind of stuff? Commented May 2, 2016 at 21:37
  • @ThomasWeller It can send data to a server -- it's just non-sensitive data that doesn't mean anything really. Doesn't need to preserve formatting. Clipbrd seems to sync your clipboard all the time -- I only want to choose when to send my clipboard. (BTW, sorry for the late reply; been a bit busy!) Commented May 7, 2016 at 11:52

You can use PushBullet. It is free, Works on all platforms including android. It also has a web interface.

There is a chrome extension. And also dedicated installers for all platforms. You can send text, files etc.

It allows you to send text or files to all devices (1), or a selected device(2).

You can evens send text and files to other people's PushBullet if they have a PushBullet account.

  • This has a lot of other features - worth checking out. Recommended.

Have you considered Pastebin for this task? It may not transfer directly from/to the clipboard, but it is simple enough to work with conveniently. If you need private text transfers I would recommend Google Keep, though keep in mind the contents of your clipboard would be on their servers.

  • This was a good option, +1 :) But I found PushBullet easier to use Commented May 7, 2016 at 11:51

Take a look at Telegram. You should create a nickname, and then use it to send a message addressed to yourself (https://telegram.me/YourUsernameHere). Then you can just paste text and receive it everywhere you are logged in, and in particular through web browser (https://web.telegram.org).


Google drive works fine for this, you can even edit the same document from multiple computers on the same time: https://drive.google.com
