Projects / IpClip

IpClip allows you to quickly generate random lorem ipsum and other placeholder text so it can be copied to the clipboard and used in wireframes, prototypes, and similar design artifacts. The amount of text is selectable and includes options for a few words, sentences of various lengths, paragraphs, and bulleted lists. There are additional random content options for names, phone numbers, and price lists.

My design goal with IpClip was enabling the user to place content on the clipboard with as few clicks or keystrokes as possible. Once IpClip has focus, one click or keyboard equivalent will produce the lorem ipsum content which can then be copied to the clipboard.

As of version 3, IpClip is web-based and can be used on any computer or tablet device running virtually any web browser. No web server is required to run IpClip, so you can run it locally on your computer or tablet. If you want to try it out, there's a live version. Downloads are available below.
