Emoji for Python. This project was inspired by kyokomi.


The entire set of Emoji codes as defined by the unicode consortium is supported in addition to a bunch of aliases. By default, only the official list is enabled but doing emoji.emojize(use_aliases=True) enables both the full list and aliases.

>> import emoji
>> print(emoji.emojize('Python is :thumbs_up:'))
Python is 👍
>> print(emoji.emojize('Python is :thumbsup:', use_aliases=True))
Python is 👍
>> print(emoji.demojize('Python is 👍'))
Python is :thumbs_up:
>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python is fun :red_heart:"))
Python is fun ❤
>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python is fun :red_heart:",variant="emoji_type"))
Python is fun ❤️ #red heart, not black heart

By default, the language is English (language='en') but Spanish ('es'), Portuguese ('pt') and Italian ('it') are also supported.

>> print(emoji.emojize('Python es :pulgar_hacia_arriba:', language='es'))
Python es 👍
>> print(emoji.demojize('Python es 👍', language='es'))
Python es :pulgar_hacia_arriba:
>>> print(emoji.emojize("Python é :polegar_para_cima:", language='pt'))
Python é 👍
>>> print(emoji.demojize("Python é 👍", language='pt'))
Python é :polegar_para_cima:️


Via pip:

$ pip install emoji --upgrade

From master branch:

$ git clone https://github.com/carpedm20/emoji.git
$ cd emoji
$ python setup.py install


$ git clone https://github.com/carpedm20/emoji.git
$ cd emoji
$ pip install -e .\[dev\]
$ pytest

The utils/get-codes-from-unicode-consortium.py may help when updating unicode_codes.py but is not guaranteed to work. Generally speaking it scrapes a table on the Unicode Consortium's website with BeautifulSoup and prints the contents to stdout in a more useful format.
