Installation

mkdir -p ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/local

Examples

The following LaTeX code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{coloremoji}
\begin{document}
Hello, 🌎.
\end{document}

produces something like:

Hello, world.

You can even use emojis in math. The following LaTeX code:

\[
🐊^{🐊^{🐊}} = ∫_{πŸŽƒ} πŸ™Š \ dπŸ€
\]

produces something like:

Emojis in math mode.

Known issues

This style sheet creates a PDF where each emoji is actually an embedded image rather than a character using the Apple Color Emoji typeface. This means you won't be able to correctly copy and paste emjois from the resulting .pdf files.

The encoding of the .tex must support emoji's, that is unicode characters. So switch your encoding to something like UTF-8.
