jQuery Snippet:

<script type="text/javascript">
    $("#myForm").on('submit',function(e) {
        var input = $('#myInput').val();
        var replaced = emojione.toShort(input);
        $('#myInput').val(replaced);

        // prevent form submission
        // normally you wouldn't do this but we don't want your page to reload for this demo
        e.preventDefault();
    });
</script>
