Build Status

CLI to bulk upload emojis to your Slack!

Install

Note you must have node and npm installed. If you don't, go to nodejs.org and follow the install instructions there.

$ npm install -g emojipacks

or

$ git clone git@github.com:lambtron/emojipacks.git
$ cd emojipacks
$ make

Usage

There is only one command:

$ emojipacks

It'll ask you a few questions:

Slack subdomain: 20percentclub
Email address login: andyjiang@gmail.com
Password: *********
Path or URL of Emoji yaml file: ./packs/futurama.yaml

Then, let it work its magic:

Uploaded emojis

Note that the emoji pack to upload can be a path to a yaml file on your machine or a URL, like http://www.emojipacks.com/packs/food.yaml.

Optionally Pass Command Line Parameters

This will allow for easier batch uploading of multiple yaml files

$ emojipacks -s <subdomain> -e <email> -p <password> -y <yaml_file>

Run Batch Upload script

A file named batchUploadExample.sh is provided for your reference. Edit this file change the subdomain, email, and password parameters to your own and save it as batchUpload.sh or something similar.

This script will aid in the process of batch uploading.

It optionally takes an argument for the directory path that contains your yaml files. If this is not provided './packs' will be used by default.

$ ./batchUpload.sh [path_to_yaml_files]

Emoji Yaml File

Also note that the yaml file must be indented properly and formatted as such:

title: food
emojis:
  - name: apple
    src: http://i.imgur.com/Rw0Vlda.png
  - name: applepie
    src: http://i.imgur.com/g4RU1fM.png

..with the src pointing to an image file. According to Slack:

  • Square images work best
  • Image can't be larger than 128px in width or height
  • Image must be smaller than 64K in file size

Emoji Aliases

It is possible to give multiple names to a single emoji using yaml such as:

title: octicons
emojis:
  - name: pr
    aliases:
      - pullrequest
      - mergerequest
    src: https://i.imgur.com/rhwNxfc.png

Troubleshooting

This script will essentially log into your Slack and then submit a POST request on the emoji upload form page. If you are seeing errors, make sure that:

  • you have Slack privileges to add custom emojis: otherwise, the script won't be able to get to the emoji upload form
  • you disabled two-factor authentication: again, having two-factor enabled will prevent the script from getting to the necessary emoji upload form
  • your credentials are correct: if you have done all of the following correctly try running the command emojipacks -d
