On GitHub, Slack, or whatever, you can easily input emoji on the comment field as you type a colon (:). Bugzilla should also support this shortcut.

GitHub's current emoji list is here:
Blocks: bmo-markdown
Depends on: 1476107
No longer depends on: bmo-markdown-initial-release
No longer blocks: bmo-markdown

I need something small to work on.

Does it really block that? I was going to add this to the markdown renderer because that's how github does it.

This is a frontend enhancement. On GitHub or Slack, you’ll see a list of emoji when you type semicolon (:) and can input directly, not a server-side conversion. We should do the same.

It's both. Github appears to store the non-emoji form, so we can do the same. I'll also add an API for completing the emojis.

In the time since this bug was created, operating systems have improved their native emoji keyboard support to a point where we no longer need to reimplment an emoji picker in BMO.
