Emoji notation expansion.

Project description

:sparkles::syringe::sparkles: inject-emoji

|Build Status|

A simple script to replace `emoji <>`__
string notation such as ``:simple_smile:`` with an HTML image tag. By
default, ``inject-emoji`` reads from ``STDIN``, and writes to


So many offline GitHub Flavored Markdown renderers, yet so few with
GitHub Flavored Markdown Emoji. Until now.

The Interface

``inject-emoji`` is available both as a Python module and a command-line
application (powered by Python).

The Python Module

***injectemoji.InjectEmoji([Input FileObj], [Output FileObj],
[emoji\_directory])*** If input and/or output FileObjects are provided,
they will be used accordingly. If none are provided, ``sys.stdin`` and
``sys.stdout``, respectively, will be used. If an emoji directory (say,
from your own checkout of
`WebpageFX/ <>`__),
the substitutions provided to the regular expression in ``inject-emoji``
will be a reflection of the filenames in that directory.

The CLI Tool

.. code:: text

usage: inject-emoji [-h] [-o FILE] [-d EMOJI_DIR] [FILE]

Convert emoji-cheat-sheet notation to HTML image tags.

positional arguments:
FILE Read from FILE instead of stdin

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-o FILE, --output FILE
Write to FILE instead of stdout
Read emoji directory listing from EMOJI_DIR instead of
bundled emoji

The Installation


$ pip install inject-emoji

The RegEx

The regular expression match is Python-flavored. The shorthand view of
it is:

`Debuggex Demo <>`__

However, in the source itself, all 800+ emoji names are compiled into
the regex.

The Why

I wrote this script to enhance Github Flavored Markdown generated by
`Marked 2 <>`__. To use it with Marked 2, configure
it as a preprocessor like so:
