ep

Emoji Picker

ep is an emoji picker for the CLI.

Demo:

Installation

go install github.com/bcongdon/ep

Usage

Usage of ./ep:
./ep [QUERY]
  -noninteractive
    	If set, doesn't display emoji picker -- instead just outputting the first selection for the provided query.
  -output string
    	The output of ep. Choices: clipboard, stdout (default "clipboard")

Navigation can be done with the arrow keys. Pressing Enter copies the selected emoji to the clipboard.

Examples

  • ep - Opens the default emoji picker.
  • ep wink - Opens the default emoji picker with the query "wink" already entered
  • ep -noninteractive wink - Copies the first search result for "wink" to the clipboard
  • ep -noninteractive -output=stdout wink - Outputs the first search result for "wink" to stdout

Troubleshooting

  • If you see blank squares in the emoji grid, these emojis cannot be rendered by your terminal's font.
  • If you see composite emojis (i.e. 👨‍👨‍👧) rendered as multiple emojis (i.e. 👨👨👧), this is a known issue.
