    Unsupported emojis fallback

    Certain sets don’t support all emojis (i.e. Facebook doesn't support :shrug:). By default the Emoji component will not render anything so that the emojis’ don’t take space in the picker when not available. When using the standalone Emoji component, you can however render anything you want by providing the fallback props.

    To have the component render :shrug: you would need to:

    emojiFallback = (emoji: any, props: any) => (emoji ? `:${emoji.shortNames[0]}:` : props.emoji);
    <ngx-emoji set="twitter" emoji="shrug" size="24" [fallback]="emojiFallback"></ngx-emoji>

    Custom emojis

    You can provide custom emojis which will show up in their own category. You can either use a single image as imageUrl or use a spritesheet as shown in the second object.

    const customEmojis = [
        name: 'Octocat',
        shortNames: ['octocat'],
        text: '',
        emoticons: [],
        keywords: ['github'],
        imageUrl: '',
        name: 'Test Flag',
        shortNames: ['test'],
        text: '',
        emoticons: [],
        keywords: ['test', 'flag'],
        spriteUrl: '',
        sheet_x: 1,
        sheet_y: 1,
        size: 64,
        sheetColumns: 57,
        sheetRows: 58,
    <emoji-mart [custom]="customEmojis"></emoji-mart>

    Headless search

    The Picker doesn’t have to be mounted for you to take advantage of the advanced search results.

    import { EmojiSearch } from '@ctrl/ngx-emoji-mart';
    class ex {
      constructor(private emojiSearch: EmojiSearch) {'christmas').map(o => o.native);
        // => [🎄, 🎅🏼, 🔔, 🎁, ⛄️, ❄️]

    Display emoji as custom element

    // $event is from (emojiClick)
    const styles = this.emoji.emojiSpriteStyles($event.emoji.sheet, 'twitter'); // pass emoji sheet
    const el = document.createElement('div');
    Object.assign(, styles); // apply styles to new element


    By default EmojiMart will store user chosen skin and frequently used emojis in localStorage.

    Possible keys are:

    Key Value Description
    skin 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
    frequently { 'astonished': 11, '+1': 22 } An object where the key is the emoji name and the value is the usage count
    last 'astonished' (Optional) Used by frequently to be sure the latest clicked emoji will always appear in the “Recent” category


    Powerful search

    Short name, name and keywords

    Not only does Emoji Mart return more results than most emoji picker, they’re more accurate and sorted by relevance.



    The only emoji picker that returns emojis when searching for emoticons.


    Fully customizable

    Anchors color, title and default emoji


    Emojis sizes and length


    Default skin color

    As the developer, you have control over which skin color is used by default.


    It can however be overwritten as per user preference.


    Multiple sets supported

    Apple / Google / Twitter / Facebook
