Emoji-Picker

How often did you want to insert one of those Unicode emoji only to learn that there is no nice picker for Linux? Fear no more, this script uses the power of rofi to present exactly the picker you always wanted. Inserts the selected emoji directly, or copies it to the clipboard.

Usage

  1. Run rofimoji.py
  2. Search for the emoji you want
  3. - Hit enter to insert the emoji directly
    • Hit Alt+c to copy it to the clipboard
  4. 🎠

How does it look?

Installation

Download rofimoji.py and move it somewhere on your path, for example /usr/local/bin.

What else do you need:

  • Python 3
  • A font that can display emoji, for example EmojiOne or Noto Emoji
  • xdotool for typing the emoji
  • xsel to copy the emoji to the clipboard

For Ubuntu zesty: sudo aptitude install python3 fonts-emojione xsel xdotool

Updating the emojis

This is only needed if a new Unicode version came out and you can’t wait for the official update!

  1. Install Python 3 and pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
  2. Run extract_emojis.py - this downloads the complete list from https://emojipedia.org/emoji/, so don’t do it too often!
  3. A new file emojis.py should have been created. Open it and copy the contents
  4. Open rofimoji.py and replace the emoji list with the contents of emojis.py

FAQ

Why is it so pedestrian? Why not simple import from emojis.py?

Because now you only have to download one file, and it works  Additionally, we need no separate I/O just to load the emojis. This is good, right?
