Multiplatform Emoji client 😎

This Module allows you to use Emoji in your Web application interface.

If Emoji are natively supported by user's paltform, it will be rendered as-is. Otherwhise Module will provide fallback images.

User Guide

To use Emoji in your interface, follow this steps.

  • Include specc-emoji.js on your site. Bottom of the <body> tag prefered.
  • Mark all Elements which may content Emoji with js-emoji-included class name.
  • Fire

That's it.


How it works 🤔

First of all it checks for native Emoji supporting. You can access this feature by Emoji.supported property

if ( Emoji.supported ){
	console.log('Emoji natively supported.');
} else {
	console.log('Emoji does not supported.');

If user's platform does not supports Emoji, Module will find and relpace all smiles with fallback images that looks like

<em class="emoji" data-emoji="😏"></em>

Cutted Unicode symbols stores in data-emoji attribute. Next, CSS class emoji.css will stylize this <em> tag with fallback images.

Note that Module requires special CSS file emoji.css, which placed in ../css/ (from original script) directory. If you need to specify your own style location, open specc-emoji.js and change CSS_FILE_PATH property to your path.

* @private
* Path where styles stored
var CSS_FILE_PATH = 'css/emoji.css';

Same thing with CSS file: it uses fallback images by ../emoji/<FILENAME> address.


Open example.html file.
