TextformatterEmoji by Ryan Cramer

Converts 800+ emojis shortcodes in text to native browser UTF-8 emoji.

ProcessWire Emoji Textformatter Module

This module converts named shortcode emojis in ProcessWire text or textarea fields to the corresponding UTF-8 emoji character. For instance :smile: converts to a smile emoji.

This can be especially useful if your ProcessWire uses the utf8 character set rather than utf8mb4 as it enables you to use emojis on an installation that typically would not be able to save them. This is because emojis usually require utf8mb4 (4 bytes characters) to be used by the database in order to store them.

Note that how the emoji appears (and sometimes whether it appears) can vary from platform to platform, and from browser to browser.

Emoji reference


Here is an alphabetical list of supported emojis and the shortcodes you can use to show them in your text. If you want to add any emojis that are not already present you can do so in the file: emojis.json

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
