Flycut is a clean and simple clipboard manager for developers. It based on an open source app called Jumpcut. Flycut is also open source too: http://github.com/TermiT/flycut
Every time you copy code pieces Flycut store it in history. Later you can paste it using Shift-Command-V even if you have something different in your current clipboard. You can change hotkey and other settings in preferences.

- Bug fixes
Some users complained that bezel (popup) stays open after the release of the hotkey. To turn off this behavior simply uncheck "Sticky Bezel" in the app preferences.

Simple, Mac-like, and essential!
I've used Flycut since it was called Jumpcut—so first of all, thank you to the communty who forked Jumpcut and kept it alive. I cannot use a computer without a multi-clipboard utility and this is the best. I don't need a visual history and searchable rich clippings and stuff like that. All I need is what Flycut does: a utility that saves everything I've copied that is quick and simple to call up and paste with a keystroke.
Seriously, if Apple ever implements a multi-clipboard feature into macOS, this is the one to copy and paste. (See what I did there?) I've tried several others and none of them come anywhere close to the simplicity of Flycut. It truly is one of my top three essential apps to install on every Mac I own.
Bugs in this version, but one of the best utilities I’ve used
The original Jumpcut has worked on every system I’ve tried it on and is one of the most useful apps I’ve ever installed, but hasn’t been updated in a long time and I’ve had to cross my fingers that it would work after every OS upgrade... I’m glad Flycut has taken up the reins to keep this utility alive and well, but Flycut has a bug that does not allow it to remember your settings after a restart - unless you tell it to save after each clip… It won’t save your preferences whenever they’re changed like most other apps and it took me a while to figure out how to get it to save its preferences. There’re a couple of reports of this problem on the developers GitHub, but it’s still a problem.
Still, bugs aside it’s one of my most used/first installed utilities and it’s approach to clipboard management fits my style better than all other clipboard buffers/managers that I’ve tried.
The Definitive Solution to the Modern Pasteboard
The only think I can say about this app is as a programmer and and a power user, this app has changed my life. That sounds like an overstatement; maybe it is. It also could be a knee jerk reaction to an obvious modern addition to the pervasive 30 year old concept of the Macintosh pasteboard. Whichever it is, the utility of this app is incredible. I can't emphasis how much Flycut has streamlined my workflow, and as a long time Mac user, Flycut's user experience has always felt right at home. Every time I show this app to a coworker, fellow developer, OS X power user, or anyone who know just wants to save time, I see a look of joy. Anyone who has invoked Command + C will appreciate this app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
