About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!


NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

An emoji database.


npm install @stdlib/datasets-emoji


var emoji = require( '@stdlib/datasets-emoji' );


Returns an emoji database.

var data = emoji();
// returns [ {...}, ... ]

Each element in the returned database has the following fields:

  • group: emoji group (illustrative); e.g., 'Smileys & Emotion'.
  • subgroup: emoji subgroup (illustrative); e.g., 'face-smiling'.
  • codepoints: list of one or more hex code points, separated by spaces; e.g., '1F600'.
  • hash: hash value used to match related emoji.
  • status: indicates whether an emoji element is missing one or more emoji presentation selectors. Possible values: 'fully-qualified', 'minimally-qualified', 'unqualified'.
  • emoji: rendered emoji; e.g., '😀'.
  • short_name: CLDR short name; e.g., 'grinning face'.
  • description: short description (often matching the CLDR short name, but omitting skin tones, hair styles, et cetera).
  • aliases: an array of emoji aliases (i.e., common names used to refer to an emoji).
  • keywords: an array of keywords related to an emoji.
  • codes: an array of emoji codes (i.e., convenient character sequences used within text to refer to an emoji); e.g., ':grinning:' and ':call_me_hand::skin-tone-5:'.

In addition, for those emoji supporting skin tones, an element may have the following field:

  • skin_tones: an array of skin tone modifiers based on the Fitzpatrick scale; e.g., 'skin-tone-2'.


var discreteUniform = require( '@stdlib/random-base-discrete-uniform' );
var emoji = require( '@stdlib/datasets-emoji' );

var data;
var len;
var idx;
var d;
var i;

data = emoji();
len = data.length;

// Select random emoji...
for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
    idx = discreteUniform( 0, len-1 );
    d = data[ idx ];
    console.log( d.emoji + ' => ' + d.codes[ 0 ] );
