Installation

At a minimum, you need the core picker package. This gives you a picker that you can insert inline into an element on the page.

npm install picmo

Basic usage

import { createPicker } from 'picmo';

// The picker must have a root element to insert itself into
const rootElement = document.querySelector('#pickerContainer');

// Create the picker
const picker = createPicker({ rootElement });

// The picker emits an event when an emoji is selected. Do with it as you will!
picker.addEventListener('emoji:select', event => {
  console.log('Emoji selected:', event.emoji);
});
