Crates.io Continuous integration

The fuzzy searching terminal based Emoji finder you've always needed.



cargo install emojifinder


This repo is a Cargo workspace containing two binary crates and a third providing a common core.

  • builder creates an index which is serialised and compressed to finder/data/index.bin
  • finder is the frontend program run by the end user

To rebuild the index you'll need to fetch the submodules for the SVGs and annotations data:

git submodule update --init --recursive

You can then build the index:

cargo run -p emojifinder-builder

and eventually the frontend:

cargo run --release
