Emoji are ideograms and smileys used in electronic messages and web pages. Emoji exist in various genres, including facial expressions, common objects, places and types of weather, and animals. – Wikipedia: Emoji
I started writing my blog post with Emacs until I realized that Emacs does not support emojis 😱. Emacs - some people make fun 🤪 of it by saying it is an operating system - has no emojis support? That was the first surprise 😮 until I found out why:
The Emacs developers deliberately disabled a feature that was working perfectly fine for MacOS users just because it is not available for free systems. What a daft decision. – GNU Emacs Removes Color Emoji Support on the Mac
Emacs does not support emojis because Linux does not have support 🙈 for emojis?!? What kind of 🤯 logic is this??? Goodbye Emacs - even if I could build 🏗 my own Emacs version that supports emojis.
Do you need a reason too?
- Your toaster 🍞 does not print emojis like a Toasteroid?
- Your fridge 🧊 does not recognize emojis?
- Your washing 🧼 machine doesn’t put emojis on your clothes?
It was a nice time, but now it’s time to say 🤬.
