You know how sometimes you type English and it has all these letters and words and no emoji? Yeah, emoji-translate fixes that.
This is what you actually want, right? Can't blame you. Here you go.
As a library
You can also use this as a standalone library for your own translation purposes.
npm install moji-translate
translate = require('moji-translate'); console.log(translate.getAllEmojiForWord('👀')); console.log(translate.translate("the house is on fire and the cat is eating the cake"));
emoji-translate api has 5 methods:
isMaybeAlreadyAnEmoji-- returns true if a character is already an emoji
getAllEmojiForWord(word)-- returns a list of possible emoji translations
getEmojiForWord(word)-- returns a random translation from the list returned by
translate(chunk, onlyEmoji)-- returns a translation of the whole chunk of text. If
onlyEmojiis true, then the untranslatable words are removed
translatebut returns a
<span>element that contains either the original word, or the emoji translation, ready for display (either as a span, or a
<select>if multiple translations are available)
There's also a Chrome extension that lets you translate any page on the internet to emoji. Your nightmares are finally over.
This was made as part of an
json file of emoji names and keywords y'all should use in all your projects.
