✨ Support for emojis in commit messages


emoji in commit messages should not be reserved to git and git oriented tools ! We use phabricator with mercurial, and it would be awesome if it could support them too ! :smile:

It seems that a subset of emoji is supported in the comments, but not in commit messages imported from mercurial repos (I guess it would be the same with git and phabricator).

https://gitmoji.carloscuesta.me/ for reference :sparkles:


Phabricator already supports actual emoji (that is, Unicode emoji characters like :cat2:) in commit messages.

We are very unlikely to ever support :emoji: codes in Remarkup. See https://secure.phabricator.com/D17244 for some discussion and rationale. If you’d like this feature, your best bet is to add a Remarkup rule yourself.


(Discourse has replaced my emoji character U+1F408 with the text :cat2: and rendered that as a small image of a dog or weasel, but I typed the U+1F408 character.)


Thanks a lot, I’ll go and read that long discussion.

Is Remarkup used to render titles of Differentials ?


No, see https://secure.phabricator.com/T3278. Actual emoji work correctly.
