Unicode Emojis for Pidgin

This repository contains three sets of emojis:

  • original Apple Color Emojis as used in iOS
  • original Android Emojis extracted from Android OS
  • Symbola Emojis mostly the original draft pictograms

These Smilies can easily be used in Pidgin by copying the folders to ~/.purple/smileys

Please note that every smiley maps to his dedicated unicode character as specified by Unicode 6.0. This enables interoperability withs Android & iOS chats clients. Other chat partners might want to install either the Symbola or Android TrueType font the see the Emojis
