Discord-like emoji when I type the : symbol in chat

right now, it even works on the forums here, discord, signal, telegram and other chat apps if i type the : symbol an emoji selector will popup. that’d be cool to see it appear in the delta.chat app. i think alot of people, including myself love to use emojis and this would make the delta.chat app better.



desktop already replaces colon emojis before sending.

Though it has no preview / selector that pops up yet.

It’s also mentioned in the markdown subset that we plan to implement: message-parser/spec.md at master · deltachat/message-parser · GitHub
