Can't handle emoji? Use this to treat them as plain strings, according to the description provided by unicode.

Project description

Take a string with emoji in it. Convert them into their text based names.

from emoji2text import emoji2text

emoji2text("""
Take a ๐ŸŽ of emoji like ๐Ÿฅ‘, ๐Ÿ˜ž or ๐Ÿคฎ
and convert them to ๐Ÿ”  ๐Ÿ”ก
and you'll be feeling all
๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป ๐Ÿ’ฏ ๐ŸŽŠ!
""")
# Take a wrapped gift of emoji like avocado, disappointed face or face vomiting
# and convert them to input latin uppercase input latin lowercase
# and you'll be feeling all
# raising hands: medium-dark skin tone flexed biceps: light skin tone woman scientist man technologist hundred points confetti ball!

You can also wrap them to help differenciate each emoji like so:

emoji2text("๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž", ":")
# :grinning face::face with tears of joy::face with tears of joy::smiling face with sunglasses:

emoji2text("๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž", "<", ">")
# <grinning face><face with tears of joy><face with tears of joy><smiling face with sunglasses>

To install, use pip

pip install emoji2text

Only supports Python 3 and emoji version 5.0 (2017). If someone is interested in increasing support Iโ€™d be happy to look at any PR.

If you spot any errors, please create an issue with a failing input and expected result.

Only possible thanks to the very helpful grapheme module.
