emoj

Find relevant emoji from text on the command-line

Uses a local emoji database.

Install

Ensure you have Node.js version 10 or higher installed. Then run the following:

$ npm install --global emoj

Works best on macOS and Linux. Older Linux distributions don't support color emoji in the terminal, but newer ones (like Ubuntu 18.04 and Fedora 28) do. On Linux, I would recommend installing Emoji One for full emoji coverage. Doesn't really work on Windows.

Usage

$ emoj --help

  Usage
    $ emoj [text]

  Example
    $ emoj 'i love unicorns'
    🦄  🎠  🐴  🐎  ❤  ✨  🌈

  Options
    --copy -c       Copy the first emoji to the clipboard
    --skin-tone -s  Set and persist the default emoji skin tone (0 to 5)

  Run it without arguments to enter the live search
  Use the up/down keys during live search to change the skin tone
