Why not add attribute link (at least for now, if there will be a switch to noto or whatever, it can be changed/removed later) that was mentioned in Use of EmojiOne Icons requires attribution link in the footer?
Aren't we storing just the unicode in the database? If so, we should be able to convert to any format rather easily. I have no idea what are the noto SVGs licensed as, but CC-BY is pretty common and simple to comply with. I don't really know how we ended up with EmojiOne 3.x, and it is not the best that the license can change any time without us even knowing about it. So I rather extend the textformatter in someway, or just use the JS libs this emoji sets come with.JoshyPHP wrote: ↑Tue May 08, 2018 1:14 pmEach emoji set uses a different filename scheme, which makes it much harder to switch from a one to another unless you maintain your own fork.
Not sure which would make the most sense with the package, and I saw you removed twemoji support, so I assumed we will have to come up with something custom.
If the user used the actual emoji character or sequence then yes, you have the original character available if you want to process it at display time somehow. If they used an ASCII name such as
:rainbow_flag:it gets dicier, considering there's no standard for them. Either way, the only values available for templating are the original input and the EmojiOne-style sequence, e.g.
One thing that might be an option is converting from the
:format:to unicode first. That would make it possible to use any emoji imageset as the output.
Not sure whether you would merge something like that back into your Emoji plugin, but I believe that should abstract things enough to make things switchable more easily on the front end.
