Using a powerful template system it allows users to easily create their own templates making the possibilities endless and includes a comprehensive built-in guide to help you to write your own.



tmplat comes packed with the following predefined templates:

  • URL
  • Short
  • Anchor
  • Encoded
  • Markdown
  • BBCode
  • Selection in Markdown
Copies the URL of the current tab
Copies the shortened URL (using any of the supported services)
Copies an HTML anchor tag (<a>) with the URL and the tab's title
Copies the encoded URL (to be safely added directly in to an HTTP query)
Copies a Markdown inline link with the URL and the tab's title
Copies a BBCode URL tag ([url]) with the URL and the tab's title
Copies the current selection on the page as Markdown


With just the click of a button you can quickly and easily add all the information you want directly to your system clipboard without any formatting, saving you lots of time with those tedious tasks.

Coupled with support for keyboard shortcuts and right-click menus makes accessing to your favourite templates even easier and faster. The unique and simple options page empowers you with full control over how tmplat behaves and management over your templates.


URL shortening services have become common practise due to the popularity of micro-blogging, so tmplat comes prepared with support for these popular services:

Link to your account to allow tracking on your timeline
Login to your Google account to allow tracking on
Link to any custom YOURLS installations
