Inspired by but written as rofi-script instead of starting a separate rofi.

It automatically downloads the list of emojis when used for the first time. To avoid that, simply place emoji.txt from this repository in $HOME/.cache/ yourself.


  • An emoji capable font, for example Noto Emoji or Noto Color Emoji.
  • xsel to copy the selection to the clipboard. You should find it in your package manager.

Usage Example

rofi -modi 'run,drun,emoji:/path/to/rofimoji/' -show emoji

Enter copies the selected emoji into the clipboard. Requires xsel to work.
