Emoji Shortcodes are codes used on various websites to speed up emoji insertion using a keyboard. These begin with a colon and include a shorter version of an emoji name.
For example :joy: shows 😂 Face With Tears of Joy on most platforms that support shortcodes.
Emojipedia currently lists shortcodes in the following groups:
- Github: Used on Github and other platforms using Github-compatible shortcodes
- Slack: Used on Slack message plaftom.
- Discord: Used on Discord message plaftom.
- Emojipedia: A set of shortcodes based on the Unicode CLDR name of an emoji. These are not in common use on other platforms, but displayed as an example of how platforms could implement shortcodes
