๐Ÿ - Write Python with Emojis

Project description

๐Ÿ - Write Python with Emojis

Write Python code using emojis ๐Ÿ


Marc Garcia gave a wonderful lightning talk at EuroSciPy 2018 in Trento, where he pointed out some obvious deficiencies in Python's handling of unicode. For instance, code like the following is not supported:

import pandas as ๐Ÿผ


๐Ÿ is available on PyPI. Install it with pip:

$ python -m pip install pythonji

Using ๐Ÿ

๐Ÿ installs as pythonji. ๐Ÿ code files have the suffix .๐Ÿ. You can run a ๐Ÿ code file as follows:

$ pythonji file.๐Ÿ


Save the following code to the file ๐Ÿผ.๐Ÿ:

import pandas as ๐Ÿผ

# Define a dataframe and print it to the console
๐Ÿ = ๐Ÿผ.DataFrame(
        "animal": ["Panda", "Python", "Lion"],
        "๐Ÿ˜€": ["๐Ÿผ", "๐Ÿ", "๐Ÿฆ"],
        "number": [1, 2, 3],

# Do some arithmetic with the dataframe
๐Ÿ”ค = f" Pythonji {' '.join(๐Ÿ.index)}"
๐Ÿ”ข = ๐Ÿ.loc["๐Ÿ"].number + ๐Ÿ.loc["๐Ÿผ"].number
print(๐Ÿ”ค * ๐Ÿ”ข)

You can run the code as follows:

$ pythonji ๐Ÿผ.๐Ÿ 
   animal  number
๐Ÿผ   Panda       1
๐Ÿ  Python       2
๐Ÿฆ    Lion       3
 Pythonji ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฆ Pythonji ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฆ Pythonji ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฆ


  • ๐Ÿ currently only handles single script files. It can import any regular Python module, but unfortunately not ๐Ÿ modules.
  • Sadly, pip does not currently handle unicode command names. Ideally, we want the executable to be named ๐Ÿ instead of pythonji.
  • Black unfortunately can not handle ๐Ÿ code. Does anybody want to contribute to โฌ›, a formatter for ๐Ÿ?
