Emoji on the command line 😱

THIS IS A VERY USEFUL SCRIPT. IT WILL ABSOLUTELY BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY AND HELP YOU IN YOUR DAILY WORK.

😉

Basically, emojify substitutes emoji aliases that many services (like GitHub) use for emoji raw characters.

Installation

emojify is a shell script, so put it somewhere and make sure it's added to your $PATH.

Here's a one-liner:

$ sudo sh -c "curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mrowa44/emojify/master/emojify -o /usr/local/bin/emojify && chmod +x /usr/local/bin/emojify"

If you're on OS X, emojify is also on Homebrew:

$ brew install emojify

There is also a python port: pyemojify, you can have a try 😋

Usage

Here's a clever example:

$ emojify "Hey, I just :raising_hand: you, and this is :scream: , but here's my :calling: , so :telephone_receiver: me, maybe?"

would output:

Hey, I just 🙋 you, and this is 😱 , but here's my 📲 , so 📞 me, maybe?

Or maybe:

$ emojify "To :bee: , or not to :bee: : that is the question... To take :muscle: against a :ocean: of troubles, and by opposing, end them?"

To 🐝 , or not to 🐝 : that is the question... To take 💪 against a 🌊 of troubles, and by opposing, end them?

Or you could run it through git log with something like:

$ git log --oneline --color | emojify | less

and go from this dull thing:

before

to this:

after

To have an alias that does that for you, add something like:

log = ! git log --oneline --color | emojify | less

to your .gitconfig.

Note: if you want colors you need to specify the --color option.

To invoke help run emojify -h.
