Because sometimes you want to send a ❤️ to someone.

What is this?

Takes text, replaces all the texts here: 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:

How to use it

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, '', 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
