We'd probably have to use images instead of actual emoji characters so that it will work on all browsers so maybe we could use the assets in https://github.com/twitter/twemoji

or we could use the github api https://api.github.com/emojis

I'm trying to think how a cheatsheet would be helpful. If we wanted people to copy paste, native HTML might just be better. 😊

Otherwise, we need an emoji search. I'm making a JSON/CSV doc with all the details of all emojis. Maybe we can cache it and use it for a Spice/fathead?

Sometimes I want to browse. I can't remember them all. Useful in apps like hipchat, slack, github, etc. I assume thats why sites like http://www.emoji-cheat-sheet.com/ exist? Surely I'm not the only one? :D

We already have a spice for unicode:

Not sure I entirely get the relationship between unicode and emoticons. I guess they are the same?

eg is it appropriate to show the github snowman emoji as a result for the unicode snowman?

See also this page where you can compare the different emoji sets side by side. I would say the Apple set looks nicer than twitter:

Hmm there is also a curated set of emoji as part of a ruby gem created by Github. The images seem to be web optimized.. or something? Mostly they are the apple emoji. I didn't look into it too much but looks promising:

I prefer Google's over anything. The rest look outdated....
