Don't brake text-based emoticons

#1

Classic emoticons are cool “8-)” DC have some of them, but the issue is that they are can be broken if the line is too long, I suggest to treat them as an unit(as a word) and if they are at the end of the line wrap the full emoticon, other wise they are broken in two parts by the change of line ("\n")

Expected behavior

DC don’t brake emoticons, in long lines
☜(゚ヮ゚☜)

Actual behavior

DC brake emoticons, in long lines ☜(゚
ヮ゚☜)

while this would be cool, i fear this is not that easily doable. however, maybe someone likes to try that :slight_smile:

When we implement markdown in android we probably need to parse and structure the text in a different way anyway, so I would postpone this until then.

Discord made a lib for it: https://github.com/discordapp/simpleast (apache 2 license i think, maybe we can use it as reference)

A little (a lot) offtopic, but we could expand the text-based emojis database too

Unicode is also supported in most non-DC MUAs and emojis are unicode characters.
