I made a SIMBL plugin for Terminal.app which enable us to copy on selection. Here is the plugin named TerminalCopyOnSelect.

TerminalCopyOnSelect.bundle.zip

INSTALLATION

  1. At first, you should install SIMBL.
  2. Download the zipped plugin file I mentioned above and expand it.
  3. Copy the extracted file "TerminalCopyOnSelect.bundle" to the plugin directory which is located at ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/
  4. Terminate all processes of Terminal.app and restart it.

You're done! Now you can get copied selected text from the terminal when you released mouse button on it.

You are also able to disable this feature by turning off the following menu "Copy On Select".

Finally, I opened the source of this plugin on the GitHub under the MIT license.

Enjoy!

Is there anything preventing you from making this work system-wide? Aljoscha

How do I get around this error message? Error Terminal 2.1 (v272) has not been tested with the plugin TerminalCopyOnSelect (null) (v0.1.0). As a precaution, it has not been loaded. Please contact the plugin developer for further information.

I've compiled the current version from github, this has the current Terminal version number in it so it will prevent the "has not been tested" error. You can get it from http://www.argon.org/~roderick/ .

Any chance we can get a recompile for 10.9?

Face Spencer about 3 years ago.

You don't have to re-compile it, this version works on 10.9 (Mavericks) as long as you update the max supported version number for terminal.app. Command-click the TerminalCopyOnSelect.bundle and choose "Show Package contents." Open Contents/Info.plist in your text editor and change the version number to 326 under MaxBundleVersion.
