Copy Some Data From The Chrome Console

Sometimes you have some data that you are playing around with in the console, something you logged from an API response. You then want to share it, so you try to copy the whole thing into your system copy buffer. There are a couple hacky ways of doing this, but Chrome supports a really smooth way.

Use the copy function.

characters
> (8) [{…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}, {…}]
copy(characters[1])

My system copy buffer now contains the entire object that makes up the second entry in that list. I can then paste it into Slack or wherever.
