[FEATURE PROPOSAL] Using OpenMoji as default emoji set for /e/OS

Good morning or good evening, everyone,

I would like to make a suggestion for the complete and progressive redesign that /e/ is undertaking.

In the default AOSP keyboard, the emojis used are the ones created by Google and I think that this may go against the approach, which is to “de-Google” totally the Android system.

Fortunately, while browsing community projects, I found this open-source and free to use emojis project that I find, well, quite intriguing.

It’s called OpenMoji and this is the site :


So, the project is far from perfect, but I think that using OpenMoji by default will strengthen the “de-Googlization” approach on the UI and UX level.

What do you think about this? Well, I think it’s a very nice emoji set that would be perfect for the mobile environment of /e/OS.

Thanks to you.

Some exemples :


Oh, boy :sweat:.

I just saw just now that somebody already talked about the subject…

Cool, so we are already two who love these! I am looking a little bit in how to make it with a Magisk Module… but I am not very good in programming…


It doesn’t have to be very complicated, but you have to follow the tutorials dedicated to them and not all smartphone models are necessarily compatible with Magisk and/or the Root in general.

great supporter of this! would love to have them.


So I was digging a bit in this matter. In fact, OpenMojis can’t yet be really used, because the color version works only in Firefox. I tried to make a Magisk module, but had only black/white emojis. So I found out that colors work only in Firefox. Too bad… but let’s wait a bit and I guess we will see them work in every surrounding!
So for the moment I stick with Joy Pixels (formerly EmojiOne), these are great emojis too, and there exists a Magisk Module.

that’s odd, why have they chosen the colours the way they do then? You’d think that compatibility would be a key aspect of this project.

Because there are multiple competing standards for coloured fonts. E Foundation should be able to port it to Android’s format.
