A Rust command line tool to search for emojis by name and copy them to your clipboard.


  1. Download Rust
  2. Clone this repository
  3. Navigate to the new folder
  4. Run the following command:
cargo install --path .


To search for an emoji, simply run emojicp like you would for any other command-line utility. After selecting the emoji you want, pressing Enter will copy the emoji to your clipboard.

To copy the emoji to your clipboard without having to search for it, you can run the command with the name of the emoji as an argument to the utility, e.g.

$> emojicp 100 # the emoji 💯 will be copied to your clipboard

I'd like to give a big thanks to Daniel Prilik whose compressed emoji shortcodes was a pleasure to read through and whose source code I shamelessly stole to create this CLI tool.
