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 ⚡️emoji hackday⚡️ and is powered by emojilib, a magical
json file of emoji names and keywords y'all should use in all your projects.
