Simple clipboard manager for developers
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 them 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.

Where Have I Been?
This should have been obvious, and I can't believe Apple hasn't done something similar. MacOS doesn't allow multiple items on the clipboard, but it's very common for me to need to paste multiple items on a page. I've always just copied what I needed, pasted it, then switched back to copy the other thing, then pasted. This program is simple and intuitive (if a little clunky visually), and easily allows you to switch between items on a virtual clipboard. I would love it if you could *CLICK* to select the item you want to paste from a single pop-up rather than use the direction keys to switch between pages showing individual items, but still, I will leave at 5 stars for the joy of being able to finally do something I've always wanted to do!
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.
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.
