shortnameToImage($str)

convert shortnames to images

If you've chosen to unify your inputted text so that it contains only shortnames then this is the function (or its matching Javascript function) you will want to use to convert the shortnames images when displaying it to the client.

Feel free to enter other shortnames in the input below to test the conversion process. For a complete list of emoji and their shortnames check out emoji.codes.

Note: Once you start dealing with native unicode characters server side, it's important to ensure that your web stack is set up to handle UTF-8 character encoding. That is outside of the scope of our demos, but a quick Google Search will guide you in the right direction.

PHP Snippet:

As of version 1.4.1 this library method has new syntax.
<?php
    // include the PHP library (if not autoloaded)
    require('./../lib/php/autoload.php');

    $client = new Client(new Ruleset());

    // ###############################################
    // Optional:
    // if you want to host the images somewhere else
    // you can easily change the default paths
    $client->imagePathPNG = './../assets/png/'; // defaults to jsdelivr's free CDN
    // ###############################################

    if(isset($_POST['inputText'])) {
    echo $client->shortnameToImage($_POST['inputText']);
    }
?>
        

 

As of version 1.4.1 the following implementation has been deprecated. It's included in the library for backwards compatibility but will be removed at a later date.
<?php
    // include the PHP library (if not autoloaded)
    require('./../lib/php/autoload.php');

    // ###############################################
    // Optional:
    // if you want to host the images somewhere else
    // you can easily change the default paths
    Emojione\Emojione::$imagePathPNG = './../assets/png/'; // defaults to jsdelivr's free CDN
    // ###############################################

    if(isset($_POST['inputText'])) {
    echo Emojione\Emojione::shortnameToImage($_POST['inputText']);
    }
