A cloud-based clipboard, yank(copy) text into a numbered cloud register on a machine, put(paste) the text from the cloud register on another machine.
It uses GITHUB's gist as the cloud service.
1. run command `:CBInit` to set up your own cloudboard.
2. visual select the text that you want to copy (otherwise all the current buffer), use command `:CBYank 0` to copy it into cloud register 0.
3. open vim on another machine, use command `:CBPut 0` to paste the text from cloud register 0.
### Cloud Register
The number starts from 0, you can use anyone you'd like, for example:
`:CBList` to put the contents from all cloud registers into current buffer.
#### Auto Clear of Cloud Registers
When AutoClear is turned on for a cloud register, the content of the cloud register will be cleared automatically after its content is read by a `CBPut` action.
`:CBAutoClear 2` to toggle on/off AutoClear of cloud register 2.
### Cloud Files
Cloud files are named files stored in a GITHUB gist.
:CBSave test.c to save selected range into a cloud file named test.c.
:CBLoad test.c to load a cloud file test.c into current buffer.
:CBRm test.c to delete a cloud file test.c.
:CBListFiles to list all cloud files in the cloudboard gist.
Loading cloud files requires two requests to GITHUB, thus cloud register is faster to be used as a clipboard across machines.
Cloud files is better when the text is huge, especial in case of that you prefer to save them for long period.
