Modern popup emoji picker

Emote is a modern emoji picker for Linux 🚀.

Written in GTK3, Emote is lightweight and stays out of your way.

Launch the emoji picker with the configurable keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+E and select one or more emojis to paste them into the currently focussed app.

Note - Emote under Wayland cannot automatically paste the emoji into other apps and also requires manual registering of a global keyboard shortcut - [Hotkey In Wayland](https://github.com/tom-james-watson/Emote/wiki/Hotkey-In-Wayland). This is due to intentional restrictions in the design of Wayland itself.
