nick PopClip Developer  22 Oct 24 MacOS 12 Monterey is due to be released tomorrow (Monday 25th October) so here is a quick update on how PopClip fits in.

PopClip itself is fully compatible with Monterey and doesn’t have any specific issues (that I know of). As long as you have the latest version, PopClip 2021.11, it should work fine. There are often glitches on the first boot after installing a new OS. If you have any trouble with PopClip after installing Monterey, please first try rebooting the Mac one more time.

However you will need to download updates to some PopClip extensions, and some extensions do not yet work on Monterey.

DONE: I have recently updated the following extensions for Monterey. Download and install the latest versions, linked:

Nick’s note: For best experience, update these before you update the OS to Monterey. But If you’re reading this after upgrading, hi and I’m sorry for the inconvenience

All the other extensions on the extensions page 244 should carry on working as before, but please let me know if you run into any trouble.

zampemo Oct 25 Thank you Nick, I really appreciate PopClip, it’s fantastic 


wassie Oct 25 Thanks for grinding through all these. I wish I could help but my coding skills peaked learning Pascal in college. I don’t know if you’re taking priority requests but I thought I’d throw in mine just in case: I use and Todoist all the time. And, if I had to settle for one, it’d be Now that I upgraded to Monterey without checking this, I’m going to miss it terribly.


nick PopClip Developer  1 Oct 26 Cheers @zampemo, and @wassie - I am happy to take requests. You’ll be pleased to know that I am working on the bitly one right now. In fact it is basically done, but it needs the next version of PopClip to run, which I am also putting the finising touches to. If all goes well, you should not have to wait long. Edit: I’ve added a poll above so people can vote on the extension to do next - I added your votes for todoist and bitly already.

JeanPaulH  1 Oct 26 It’s a full bingo for me  The only custom one in this list is RemovePeriods, which was a user submitted extension (in your Github PR). I guess it’s based on RemoveSpaces, so maybe while you’re at it  ?

PS I seem to also be missing UnshortenLink, the opposite version of ShortenLink which is in your list.

nick PopClip Developer Oct 26 That’s quite a few battleships sunk! Ah yes, I’ve restricted my focus to ones on my “official” extension page for now but I’ll draw up a list of other ones to look at too.

It’s actually feeling really nice to boot out my old clumsy PHP scripts, and put together some nice clean JavaScript versions. Once I get this PopClip update out I’m working on, which hopefully finalises the JS extension system, the dam wall should to break and the extensions should flow.



nick Oct 26 Thanks so much. Can’t wait. PopClip is one of my favorite and most used apps. By the way, I’ve started using Hook and found it pretty useful. Any thought to developing a PopClip Hook extension?


nick PopClip Developer Oct 26 I’ve been hearing a lot about Hook lately. I really need to try it it properly and figure out what it does! I’m sure if a PopClip extension makes sense I can come up with something.


OAL Oct 27 Alfred extension also does not work. Please add it to the list.


nick PopClip Developer Oct 27 Thanks for reporting that. Fixed — Alfred 21 moved to DONE list.


OAL Oct 27 Thanks for fixing it quickly.

Sort extension might also be problematic. Those were the two I got alerted when I updated to Monterey.


bogwood Oct 27 Thanks for the prompt fixes. I (used to) use the Convert extension frequently in my writing – once I figured out how it worked.  I am eager for its return.
