Emojione


  • Admin

    Got an email sent to us earlier, looks promising: http://www.emojione.com/

    Also pretty surprised that it seems to be free to use (was searching around for the "catch" but seemed to find none. Looks like the real deal!)

    cough plugin competition idea cough

    From that webpage, I've worked out two things.

    • They can draw snails.
    • They missed a trick with making it a star wars gaff. Emojione Kenobi... Geddit? No? I'll get my coat. 😆

    EDIT: Okay, found it on github, yeah, released under CC BY SA 4.0 and GPL 2.0+. So can be used for any purpose etc etc. I had an idea for a plugin already lined up. But will have a look through the actual emojis and see if they're any good.

    Woops. I just realized that

    A. I got a "developers" only link
    B. They told me that it's an invite only thing and I can't exactly share it with the masses

    So.... take my word for it, emoji seems cool and GPL of course so plays nice with us. If anybody's interested, send me a chat for the dev link.

    EDIT: @a_5mith man you crack me up sometimes. 😄

    EDIT2: if you're competing please put your name forward in that thread so we can shame you into competing later when you change your mind 😄 😛

    I've got a plugin I've not released yet already waiting to be published as a backup for if/when that happens. 😆

    Not sure what could be hidden on a dev only link, I found the entire project on github within about 30 seconds. 😆, it takes the Unicode input and replaces it with the .png equivalent of that Unicode character. Unless there's more to it than that. 😛

    To standardize emojis on the web through the use of common :shortnames:.

    reminds me on this:

    xkcd standards


  • I would be happy to see the stupid glossy iOS emojis replaced with Emoji One's, to be honest.

    I also feel that the iOS ones don't express things correctly, for example the :D emoji looks like what I expect a xD emoji to look like: 😄


  • @luke

    Aren't 😄 and 😆 the same emoji. Yes, they are. 😃 doesn't seem to be in the list though. (From an emoji keyboard, so probably won't display properly.

    Seems the latest update from @frissdiegurke actually fixed that right up: 😄 vs XD

  • Admin

    hmm. :XD vs XD

    :XD vs XD autocompletion 😛

    Ya, I read this board, but sometimes I forget to answer on certain posts 😛
    Thanks @a_5mith for reminding me of this case 😉

    Would need other opinions on this.
    Currently I replace all pure occurrences of xd (case-insensitive). Please upvote psychobunnys post if you think the same way and it sould get :xd (but maybe it would get confusing not to have x d within the dropdown then so it closes after :xd...).
    Btw: similar cases: zzz, o_o, ???, <3.
    Where (if any) should I add : before? Or should I simply allow : before but replace both occurrences with emoji?

    Maybe I'll also add custom mappings within ACP (would need regex-syntax knowledge by the admin). But I don't have enough spare time the next weeks to accomplish this 😛

    And maybe I'll implement image-mapping some time so I could use this to allow use of emojione (even so I don't like their talking "we're the first, we're the best,..." and their emoji don't have any names :()

    So much code so less... wait... I have to go. See ya 😄

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Hah yeah... emojione is interesting, especially because they purport to allow seamless transition between stringified emoji (e.g. :smile:) vs unicode emoji (e.g. 😃) vs imagified emoji (e.g. 😄 )

    They also have their own images, which I don't like as much as our emoji, but that's a different argument altogether, heh.

    Do they have a facility to use different image assets? If so, then we could leverage* their library to load different image sets, emoji/emojione/phpbb...

    * pardon the business-speak


  • @julian Yeah, the images appear in a folder on their github, and I think they're referenced similar to how the nodebb emoji plugin works, but just has more cases to look out for.
