An Emoji html custom element that lets you use descriptive names in place of unicode! This module is called emo-ji and that's a recommended tag name, but you can assign it however you like.


npm install --save emo-ji


This is a vanilla web component. It assumes that Custom Elements and the Shadow DOM are available in the runtime. This means it is currently compatible with the following browsers:

Chrome logo Firefox logo Internet Explorer logo Opera logo Safari logo
43+ ✔ Nope ✘ Nope ✘ 32+ ✔ Nope ✘

If you need wider support, you can polyfill web components!


Bundle with browserify! Webpack works too. If you don't use one of these, use dist/emoji.js and EmojiElement will be set on window. Use that as the prototype when registering your element.

emo-ji does not modify your global environment as a side-effect (like HTML Imports would) and allows you to choose which custom tag name to register on your own! Since HTML imports don't allow namespacing and aliasing imports like CommonJS or ES6 do in JavaScript-land, this module embraces side-effect-free imports and lets you register the element yourself in js. It's only one line, after all.

var emoji = require('emo-ji');

document.registerElement('emo-ji', { prototype: emoji });

... and in your document:

<emo-ji type="unamused"></emo-ji>
<emo-ji type="rabbit"></emo-ji>
<emo-ji type="panda_face"></emo-ji>

<script src="bundle.js"></script>

... where bundle.js is your browserify or webpack bundle.



@muan's emojilib is pretty great. Any contributions there will only make other emoji things better!
