Flycut is a clean and simple clipboard manager for developers. It based on open source app called Jumpcut. Flycut is also open source: http://github.com/TermiT/flycut
Every time you copy code pieces Flycut store it in history. Later you can past it using Shift-Command-V even if you have something different in your current clipboard. You can change hotkey and other settings in preferences.

Not Working with Mojave
I've been using this app for years. I love it. Well, actually, I should use past tense -- I loved it. As soon as I installed Mojave Flycut simply stopped working. Now, I hate the app.
The problem is that since I've downloaded Mojave, the old method of pasting doesn't work. After experimenting, here's a workaround. But, it's dramatically reduced the value of the app.
IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS THAT IT WORKED FLAWLESSLY
o Highlight and copy as many things as you want at the same time
o Put cursor where you want to paste
o Open Flycut from menu bar
o Scroll down with cursor to the item you want to paste and click on it
o Voila! Perfect!
IN THE BAD DAYS SINCE MOJAVE
o All of the above, until you scroll down with the cursor to the item you want to paste
o Nothing happens when you click on that item.
o Actually, it seems to go on to the regular system clipboard instead.
o Paste from the system clipboard
There is an item selection in Preferences that is supposed to enable the "good" feature. It's called "Menu selection pastes". It's selected in my preferences, but it doesn't work.
Extra steps. Ugh.
Very useful but worrisome security
I’ve been using this tool for years and its been indispensable. however when i started using two different Macs with the same apple ID i noticed that the flycut instances were trying to copy between each other. i was alarmed since my clipboard often carries sensitive data.
and there’s no way (that i could find) to turn that functionality off! regardless of the encryption used across the instances, i don’t want my clipboard copied between different machines. i find it amazing (amazingly negligent) that the developers thought it was ok to have such a feature turned on by default with no way of turning it off.
Not working with macOS Mojave
