Easily Send Text To a Mac’s Clipboard With Drafts

I just came across Nathan Henrie’s method for sending text from Drafts.app on iOS to a Mac’s clipboard. It involves a Dropbox action and a shell script which is executed by Hazel–similar in setup to my simple means of quickly sending Journal entries to DayOne from Drafts. As Nathan notes in his post, there are other ways of skinning this particular cat, but his method seems to fit in with my own setup pretty neatly.

The script also allows for sending text to Quicksilver, but since I’m an Alfred user, I’ll just use that app’s clipboard history feature.
