Replace emojis with :aliases: on IRC
I work with some cool cats who are on the cutting edge of hip new technologies like emojis. OS X shows the emojis correctly but if I’m using IRC over SSH from Linux all I see are missing characters:
Are they ready to push the site? I always just assume so, but before that comes back to bite me I decided to write a quick script to replace emojis with their text aliases:
On the left is their view, and on the right is my client that is still stuck in two-thousand-late.
If you run weechat and would like to use the script:
- Copy emoji2alias.py to ~/.weechat/python
/python load emoji2alias.py
If you want it to load automatically:
ln -s ../emoji2alias.py .
