📖 Usage

To use the EmojiPicker in a project, simply add it to your code like this:

val emojiBottomSheetDialogFragment = EmojiBottomSheet.newInstance({ emoji ->
        // Handle emoji click
    }), EmojiBottomSheet.TAG)

Make sure to add the following in the AndroidManifest.xml as an activity tag attribute of the Activity you’re using the EmojiPicker in android:configChanges="screenLayout|orientation|screenSize". This makes sure the EmojiPicker keeps working when the configuration changes when it’s opened.

EmojiPicker also contains an extension method to convert unicode back into an emoji. Example: The unicode for the Welsh flag emoji (󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿) is 0x1F3F40xE00670xE00620xE00770xE006C0xE00730xE007F and when using the toEmoji method on that String, it’s converted to 󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 again. It can be used as follows: "0x1F3F40xE00670xE00620xE00770xE006C0xE00730xE007F".toEmoji() or emoji.unicode.toEmoji().
