emoji-cli provides input completion for emoji on the command line with an interactive filter.

πŸ“ Description

Emoji (η΅΅ζ–‡ε­—, Japanese pronunciation: [emodΚ‘i]) are the ideograms or smileys used in Japanese electronic messages and Web pages, that are spreading outside Japan (ref: Katy Perry - Roar (Lyric Video)).

Emoji are funny and make us want to use it 😊. However, it is hard to use it on the command line. This is because the command line don't have input completion for emoji. Therefore, I developed this command line application emoji-cli.

Unfortunately, this application supports Z shell only now πŸ™‡.
