Database

With Twemoji-Picker you can save your message to a database!

The message : 'Twemoji-picker 😀 👍' is converted into Twemoji-picker &#x1f600 &#x1f44dso it can be saved to an utf8mb4 table.

When retrieving the data, you will need the twemoji.js to parse the Unicode.

MySQL:

Convert your table and column to utf8mb4.

ALTER TABLE mytable charset=utf8mb4, MODIFY COLUMN mycolumn CHARACTER SET utf8mb4;

And for each query use

SET NAMES utf8mb4.

Todo

  • Add new emojis and release a version
