There can't be enough emojis 😎 :😃 😹 so I added a new widget (based on 's emoji chooser) to 's osk-stub:

1️⃣ /2️⃣

if you're on a recent based system you can use `update-alternatives` to switch (will also make sure you have schemas compiled). will hopefully allow that soon too: (will also allow to switch to virtboard). If not on Debian "ninja -C _build install" puts the desktop file into /usr/local so it gets picked by default. But beware: lots of things need some time to settle in (e.g. you need recent presage, gtk, ...) so make sure you can recover.

@agx Is this going to replace Squeekboard in the future? It looks already really nice!

@dylanvanassche I don't think so, it's really a toy project of mine but I sure hope it will help . It builds a library that squeekboard could e.g. use to reuse the emoji widget:

@agx Oh okay, but still it looks really nice :) The emoij and auto complete features are really useful!

@dylanvanassche 😍 thanks - there's still lots of rough edges though (that said I'm using it daily to test these more).

@agx looks great! Please include a search box as well, it's the only way I can find the emojis I want to use

@nsrosenqvist you wouldn't have any way to type in that search box as this is an on screen keyboard 😇 I guess what you want is text completion to complete on emojis but that's a separate story (but this MR is a prereq for that).

@agx on GBoard the emoji selector slides up when you tap the search entry above the emoji selector and reveals the original keyboard. But perhaps this isn't possible to implement with this osk?

@nsrosenqvist that's certainly possible but eats up valuable screen space. I think completing is the nicer approach but we'll see once this is merged what patches come up to improve the situation 😃 (we have the emoji names in the data already)

@agx What are the plans with regards to getting this into Squeekboard proper?
