🐤🎶 (chirp)

HackNY Spring 2015 Hackathon runner-up!

MP3 uses a pyschoacoustic model in its lossy compression so that it doesn't bother to reproduce sounds that can't be heard. This is the same, except for text: it replaces long words with shorter ones, sometimes even the shortest, most expressive 'words' available in Unicode: emojis.

Installation

  • You'll need to obtain the file 'full-emoji-list' from the Unicode Consortium.
  • Then run 'python extract_emoji.py' to create emoji file

### Prerequisites

Python libraries:

  • flask

Usage

Run tw.py, and navigate to localhost:5000
