An API to get the image for any emoji

December 21, 2019

I built an API called EMOJICDN that lets you pass in any emoji and get a PNG for Apple’s artwork of that emoji.

It uses the Apple versions of the emojis because I think those are the most recognizable and good-looking.


You can also use that link as the source of an img html element.

I also often use it as a quick and easy favicon:

<link rel="icon" href="🤩" />

The source code for the API is open source, and there’s more details at
