The CLI Emoji Keyboard

Project description

Emoji your friends and colleagues from the comfort of your own terminal.

em is a nifty command-line utility for referencing emoji characters by name. Provide the names of a few emoji, and those lucky chosen emojis will be displayed in your terminal, then copied to your clipboard. Automagically.

Emoji can be also searched by both categories and aspects.

Example Usage

Let’s serve some delicious cake:

$ em sparkles cake sparkles
Copied! ✨🍰✨

Let’s skip the copying (for scripts):

$ em 'chocolate bar' --no-copy

Let’s find some emoji, by color:

$ em -s red
🚗  car
🎴  flower_playing_cards
👹  japanese_ogre
👺  japanese_goblin


At this time, em requires Python and pip:

$ pip install em-keyboard-py3

That’s it!

Have fun!


Why This Repo and Not The Original?

Python 3 support has been broken for almost 2 years. It’s been fixed in the repo but for some reason a new version haven’t been released for it. This is to fill the gap; should em get updated this will go away.
