Emoji Autocomplete

I am the Big Fan of Emojis :100:

I am Looking for this Feature on Ghost

Add Emoji Options like Discourse


How to use Emojis in the Ghost Editor

If you’re on Windows 10 or macOS then your OS has an emoji picker (with search) that you can use anywhere.

macOS: Ctrl+Cmd+Space

Windows 10: Windows+. or Windows+;


It’s unlikely that a non-native emoji picker or :smile: type emoji support will be added to the current markdown editor. With the upcoming Koenig editor there could eventually be a way to install an emoji app that adds a picker or :smile: support to the editor.

You just pull their CSS into your pages in the code-injection section, then in your articles you embed <i> to get auto-sized icons - e.g. emoticons like:

<i class="far fa-thumbs-up"></i>
<i class="far fa-smile"></i>
<i class="far fa-meh"></i>

Retitled this idea to “Emoji Autocomplete” - because while we probably don’t want to build out a complex implementation of Emoji using images, we could definitely do an autocomplete helper tool

Please please allow an option to disable it, though.

I often run into a problem writing in French on Slack and Discourse: I have to put a space before a colon, and that triggers the autocomplete menu for emoji, which are writen like that :‍confused‍:

To be clear: We are not going to do an Emoji Picker - that isn’t happening. This topic is being kept open to track support for Emoji Autocomplete as in:

Then my comment stands, please take into account languages that require a space before the colon :slight_smile:
