Emoji for Python

Project description

Emoji for Python. This project was inspired by kyokomi.


The entire set of Emoji codes as defined by the unicode consortium is supported in addition to a bunch of aliases. By default, only the official list is enabled but doing emoji.emojize(language='alias') enables both the full list and aliases.

>>> import emoji
>>> print(emoji.emojize('Python is :thumbs_up:'))
Python is 👍
>>> print(emoji.emojize('Python is :thumbsup:', language='alias'))
Python is 👍
>>> print(emoji.demojize('Python is 👍'))
Python is :thumbs_up:
>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python is fun :red_heart:"))
Python is fun 
>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python is fun :red_heart:", variant="emoji_type"))
Python is fun ❤️ #red heart, not black heart
>>> print(emoji.is_emoji("👍"))

By default, the language is English (language='en') but also supported languages are:

Spanish ('es'), Portuguese ('pt'), Italian ('it'), French ('fr'), German ('de')

>>> print(emoji.emojize('Python es :pulgar_hacia_arriba:', language='es'))
Python es 👍
>>> print(emoji.demojize('Python es 👍', language='es'))
Python es :pulgar_hacia_arriba:
>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python é :polegar_para_cima:", language='pt'))
Python é 👍
>>> print(emoji.demojize("Python é 👍", language='pt'))
Python é :polegar_para_cima:


Via pip:

$ pip install emoji --upgrade

From master branch:

$ git clone
$ cd emoji
$ python install


$ git clone
$ cd emoji
$ pip install -e .\[dev\]
$ pytest

The utils/ may help when updating but is not guaranteed to work. Generally speaking it scrapes a table on the Unicode Consortium’s website with BeautifulSoup and prints the contents to stdout in a more useful format.
