emoji-images

Replace stuff like :smiley: in text with tags of a corresponding image.

#emoji-images.js

Because sometimes you want to send a :heart: to someone.

Takes text, replaces all the texts here: http://www.emoji-cheat-sheet.com with an <img> tag containing the image.

The images are all in the folder. Host those somewhere, pass the URL to the function. See below:

 
var string = 'a string containing emoji strings like :heart: and :trollface:';
 
// the emoji function takes: 
// 1. The input string 
// 2. The url where the png files live 
// 3. (optionally) a size to specify as the height of the <img> tag. 
var emojified = emoji(string, 'http://url.com/where-you-put-the-pngs-folder/', 30); 
 

It's bundled to work as a CommonJS module, AMD module or expose itself as a global as a fallback.

Grab it here or on npm:

npm install emoji-images

I want it all in a super simple text processing (without the CSS and DOM stuff).

Also, that solution embeds pngs as data-uri's in css documents. I don't want to do that because then I have to send all that image data to the browser even if they never get used.

Um... works for me™ (and in use on andbang.com)
