Emoji for Python. This project was inspired by kyokomi.


The entire set of Emoji codes as defined by the Unicode consortium is supported in addition to a bunch of aliases. By default, only the official list is enabled but doing emoji.emojize(language='alias') enables both the full list and aliases.

>>> import emoji
>>> print(emoji.emojize('Python is :thumbs_up:'))
Python is 👍
>>> print(emoji.emojize('Python is :thumbsup:', language='alias'))
Python is 👍
>>> print(emoji.demojize('Python is 👍'))
Python is :thumbs_up:
>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python is fun :red_heart:"))
Python is fun>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python is fun :red_heart:", variant="emoji_type"))
Python is fun ❤️ #red heart, not black heart
>>> print(emoji.is_emoji("👍"))

By default, the language is English (language='en') but also supported languages are:

Spanish ('es'), Portuguese ('pt'), Italian ('it'), French ('fr'), German ('de'), Farsi/Persian ('fa')

>>> print(emoji.emojize('Python es :pulgar_hacia_arriba:', language='es'))
Python es 👍
>>> print(emoji.demojize('Python es 👍', language='es'))
Python es :pulgar_hacia_arriba:
>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python é :polegar_para_cima:", language='pt'))
Python é 👍
>>> print(emoji.demojize("Python é 👍", language='pt'))
Python é :polegar_para_cima:️


Via pip:

$ python -m pip install emoji --upgrade

From master branch:

$ git clone
$ cd emoji
$ python -m pip install .


$ git clone
$ cd emoji
$ python -m pip install -e .\[dev\]
$ pytest

The utils/ may help when updating but is not guaranteed to work. Generally speaking it scrapes a table on the Unicode Consortium's website with BeautifulSoup and prints the contents to stdout in a more useful format.
