Suggestion: emoji picker search improvement

Today I was trying to find the :tada: emoji (officially called party popper, but shorted to :tada:) and muscle memory (with MacOS) has me trained to expect finding it by searching for party:


However, Discourse’s emoji picker doesn’t find it for the same search term, even if it is part of the emoji name.

Perhaps the emojis official names could be an alias to each emoji (when they differ from the short version) to improve search on the emoji picker?


I think we already have a built in mechanism for “aliases” @joffreyjaffeux I recall we discussed this problem previously.

I love the idea of upping the party level in our emoji selector.
