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.
Generate an embeddable card to be shared on external websites.
Choose your Linux distribution to get detailed installation instructions. If yours is not shown, get more details on the installing snapd documentation.
