Discussion on: Emoji Button, a vanilla JavaScript emoji picker

The answer to your question is "it depends".

With the latest version, Emoji Button has two modes: native emojis, or Twemojis.

If you use the native style, it uses the actual emoji glyphs from your operating system, no pngs or images of any kind, just the raw Unicode sequences rendered by the system font.

If you use Twemoji style, then yes, each emoji is an image. Twemoji doesn't support sprite sheets that I know of so they use individual images.

The problem with an icon font is that they typically can only have one color, as far as I know.

Anyway, thanks for the comment and feel free to check out the latest version at emoji-button.js.org/

Hello Joe,

I just want to let you know it worked as expected with Angular & Quill :D
I actually ended up created an Angular wrapper for your picker => github.com/Fzwael/ngx-emoji-button (it's still in first stage)

Thanks again for your help.

Nice! I was thinking about creating a React wrapper at some point, as well. Might drive better adoption if the integration is already done :)
