Installation

If you are using a package manager like yarn or npm, you can install Emoji Button directly from the npm registry:

npm install @joeattardi/emoji-button

Basic usage

First, you'll need a trigger element. This is typically a button, and is used to toggle the emoji picker.

<button id="emoji-trigger">Emoji</button>

Once you've added the trigger, you will need to import the EmojiButton class and create a new instance. Various options can be passed to the constructor, which is covered in the API documentation.

After constructing a picker, it can be shown by calling showPicker or togglePicker on it. These functions expect a reference element as a parameter. The picker is positioned relative to this reference element.

When an emoji is selected, the picker will emit an emoji event, passing an object containing data about the emoji that was selected. You can then handle the selected emoji however you want.

For more in depth documentation and examples, please visit https://emoji-button.js.org.

import { EmojiButton } from '@joeattardi/emoji-button';

const picker = new EmojiButton();
const trigger = document.querySelector('#emoji-trigger');

picker.on('emoji', selection => {
  // handle the selected emoji here
  console.log(selection.emoji);
});

trigger.addEventListener('click', () => picker.togglePicker(trigger));
