Emoji

A library to add Emoji support to your Android app. Emojis can be picked in a PopupWindow. In order to edit and display text with Emojis this library provides public APIs:

  • [EmojiAutoCompleteTextView](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiAutoCompleteTextView.java)
  • [EmojiButton](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiButton.java)
  • [EmojiCheckbox](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiCheckbox.java)
  • [EmojiEditText](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiEditText.java)
  • [EmojiMultiAutoCompleteTextView](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiMultiAutoCompleteTextView.java)
  • [EmojiTextView](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiTextView.java)

There's also a [EmojiLayoutFactory](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiLayoutFactory.java), which can be used to get automatic Emoji support when using normal Android Views such as TextView, Checkbox, etc.

Material Design Library bindings can be included via:

implementation 'com.vanniktech:emoji-material:0.7.0'
  • [EmojiMaterialButton](emoji-material/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/material/EmojiMaterialButton.java)
  • [EmojiMaterialRadioButton](emoji-material/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/material/EmojiMaterialRadioButton.java)
  • [MaterialCheckBox](emoji-material/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/material/MaterialCheckBox.java)

There's also a [MaterialEmojiLayoutFactory](emoji-material/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/material/MaterialEmojiLayoutFactory.java), which can be used to get automatic Emoji support.

The library has 4 different providers to choose from (iOS, Google, Facebook & Twitter).

iOS Emojis

For getting the above iOS Emojis simply add the dependency and code below.

implementation 'com.vanniktech:emoji-ios:0.7.0'

And install the provider in your application class.

EmojiManager.install(new IosEmojiProvider());

Google

For getting the above Google Emojis simply add the dependency and code below.

implementation 'com.vanniktech:emoji-google:0.7.0'

And install the provider in your application class.

EmojiManager.install(new GoogleEmojiProvider());

Facebook

For getting the above Facebook Emojis simply add the dependency and code below.

implementation 'com.vanniktech:emoji-facebook:0.7.0'

And install the provider in your application class.

EmojiManager.install(new GoogleEmojiProvider());

Twitter

For getting the above Twitter Emojis simply add the dependency and code below.

implementation 'com.vanniktech:emoji-twitter:0.7.0'

And install the provider in your application class.

EmojiManager.install(new TwitterEmojiProvider());

Custom Emojis

If you want to display your own Emojis you can create your own implementation of [EmojiProvider](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiProvider.java) and pass it to EmojiManager.install.

All of the core API lays in emoji, which is being pulled in automatically by the provided implementations:

implementation 'com.vanniktech:emoji:0.7.0'

Set up

Inserting Emojis

Declare your [EmojiEditText](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiEditText.java) in your layout xml file.

<com.vanniktech.emoji.EmojiEditText
  android:id="@+id/emojiEditText"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="wrap_content"
  android:imeOptions="actionSend"
  android:inputType="textCapSentences|textMultiLine"
  android:maxLines="3"/>

To open the [EmojiPopup](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiPopup.java) execute the code below:

final EmojiPopup emojiPopup = EmojiPopup.Builder.fromRootView(rootView).build(emojiEditText);
emojiPopup.toggle(); // Toggles visibility of the Popup.
emojiPopup.dismiss(); // Dismisses the Popup.
emojiPopup.isShowing(); // Returns true when Popup is showing.

The rootView is the rootView of your layout xml file which will be used for calculating the height of the keyboard. emojiEditText is the [EmojiEditText](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiEditText.java) that you declared in your layout xml file.

Displaying Emojis

<com.vanniktech.emoji.EmojiTextView
  android:id="@+id/emojiTextView"
  android:layout_width="wrap_content"
  android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

Just use the [EmojiTextView](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiTextView.java) and call setText with the String that contains Unicode encoded Emojis. To change the size of the displayed Emojis use the lineHeight property from TextView.

EmojiPopup Listeners

The [EmojiPopup](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiPopup.java) builder allows you to declare several listeners.

setOnSoftKeyboardCloseListener(OnSoftKeyboardCloseListener listener);
setOnEmojiClickListener(OnEmojiClickListener listener);
setOnSoftKeyboardOpenListener(OnSoftKeyboardOpenListener listener);
setOnEmojiPopupShownListener(OnEmojiPopupShownListener listener);
setOnEmojiPopupDismissListener(OnEmojiPopupDismissListener listener);
setOnEmojiBackspaceClickListener(OnEmojiBackspaceClickListener listener);

EmojiPopup Configuration

Custom Recent Emoji implementation

You can pass your own implementation of the recent Emojis. Implement the [RecentEmoji](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/RecentEmoji.java) interface and pass it when you're building the [EmojiPopup](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiPopup.java):

setRecentEmoji(yourClassThatImplementsRecentEmoji)

If no instance or a null instance is set the [default implementation](./emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/RecentEmojiManager.java) will be used.

Custom Variant Emoji implementation

You can pass your own implementation of the variant Emojis. Implement the [VariantEmoji](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/VariantEmoji.java) interface and pass it when you're building the [EmojiPopup](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiPopup.java):

setVariantEmoji(yourClassThatImplementsVariantEmoji)

If no instance or a null instance is set the [default implementation](./emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/VariantEmojiManager.java) will be used.

Animations

Custom keyboard enter and exit animations

You can pass your own animation style for enter and exit transitions of the Emoji keyboard while you're building the [EmojiPopup](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiPopup.java):

setKeyboardAnimationStyle(R.style.emoji_fade_animation_style);

If no style is set the keyboard will appear and exit as a regular PopupWindow. This library currently ships with two animation styles as an example:

  • R.style.emoji_slide_animation_style
  • R.style.emoji_fade_animation_style

Custom page transformers

You can pass your own Page Transformer for the Emoji keyboard View Pager while you're building the [EmojiPopup](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/EmojiPopup.java):

setPageTransformer(new MagicTransformer());

If no transformer is set ViewPager will behave as its usual self. Please do note that this library currently does not ship any example Page Transformers.

Other goodies

  • [MaximalNumberOfEmojisInputFilter](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/MaximalNumberOfEmojisInputFilter.java) can be used to limit the number of Emojis one can type into an EditText
  • [OnlyEmojisInputFilter](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/OnlyEmojisInputFilter.java) can be used to limit the input of an EditText to emoji only
  • [SingleEmojiTrait](emoji/src/main/java/com/vanniktech/emoji/SingleEmojiTrait.java) can be used to force a single emoji which can be replaced by a new one
  • EmojiEditText#disableKeyboardInput() to disable normal keyboard input. To undo call #enableKeyboardInput()
