Clipboardy Frequently Asked Questions

Why Clipboardy exists and what does it solve?
When using examples from stackoverflow, github or npmjs it's not obviously to copy the code. You have to select the text, and then hit a Ctrl+V: actions that may be skipped if a copy to clipboard functionality would exist. And when copying a big amount of text: it's just not comfortable to select it.
More details can be found in this stackexchange post.
Clipboardy solves this by adding a copy to clipboard button and additional goodies.
