Compatibility, Simplicity, and Cost.

Compatibility – To ensure the widest possible compatibility across browsers and devices, Real Obvious Clipboard uses the clipboardjs open source library to perform the “copy to clipboard” action.

Simplicity – MediaWiki Templates are used to add the “copy to clipboard” capability to a wiki page. A temporary alert message is displayed when a user copies text to the clipboard providing the user feedback / confirmation of the action.

Cost – Real Obvious Clipboard is made available free of charge.
