Add English and translated aliases for Emojis

(Gerhard Schlager) #1

Continuing the discussion from Add alias support to emoji picker:

Our Emoji picker could be greatly improved by adding support for English and translated search aliases. The Unicode Consortium provides all the data we need:

This feature consists of two parts:

  1. Doing all the aliases properly for English
  2. Adding support for per locale aliases, so you can type :sourire in French on French sites and get :smile: in the window.

I’m putting it on my list.

Just as a note here, we need it to be lazy loaded, this is why I haven’t been doing it yet.

I think it is fine to have alias.en and etc… files, so we can lazy load per locale.
