Controller: The Controller encapsulates the application logic (e.g. making sure that the history is not longer than configured, ...). It uses the manager to help to interact with other components/technologies. Note that managers, views and models should never interact with each other but always communicate with the Controller through signals.

Models: Models are here for storing the application state (e.g. what clipboard item is active, or what is the size of the history, ...). Note that a model should never start an action to change the application state.

Views: Views should only provide methods to change the user interface (e.g. add clipboard item, remove clipboard item, ...), but shouldn't change it themselves.

Managers: Managers contain additional code to interact with one particular component/technology (e.g. Clipboard, Keybinding, ...). A manager is to understand as some attached code to the Controller (as to not have a Controller class with thousand of lines ;)).
