A lightweight, 0 dependency emoji utility library that actually works as you would expect. (Digits are not emojis!) Detect emojis, filter out non emojis or vice-versa, and much more
unicode-emoji-toolkit differs from other libraries that deal with emojis and regex, by being opinionated and NOT treating digits
* as emojis, despite the Unicode Standard officially including them in Emoji characters.
Most people, including me, do not consider these characters to be emojis, and hence this library was born. As you might expect, it still counts
npm install unicode-emoji-toolkit
npm i unicode-emoji-toolkit
- Import the library
const emj = require("unicode-emoji-toolkit")
boolean hasEmojis(str: string)
console.log(emj.hasEmojis("💜abc1️⃣")) // true
boolean hasNoEmojis(str: string)
console.log(emj.hasNoEmojis("abc1#")) // true
boolean hasOnlyEmojis(str: string)
console.log(emj.hasOnlyEmojis("🆗❤🧡💛💲💚💝💜1️⃣")) // true
string removeEmojis(str: string)
console.log(emj.removeEmojis("💜abc1️⃣")) // "abc"
string removeNonEmojis(str: string)
console.log(emj.removeNonEmojis("💜abc1️⃣")) // "💜1️⃣"
