Add Slack-like emoji's?

(Bart Veldhuizen) #1

I’m not saying we’re going to keep this, but the hacker in my wanted to try out this slack-like emoji plugin :slight_smile:

As I have no idea how this would impact performance, I’d rather start with an installation that’s as ‘clean’ as possible before adding plugins.

I’m not sure I’m clear on how a slack-like emoji differs from a regular one. We do already have emojis (well… icons, not unicode) in the current forum, so having something similar would be comfortable.

This is similar to the facebook reactions I guess. Try clicking on one that I left; it’ll add you and a number ‘2’ to it.

Again, just playing with some stuff here, not actually thinking we need to have this at release.

Ah. I follow. Yeah, not a huge fan of the concept, as discussed elsewhere here. Though it is pleasant to know that implementation wouldn’t be hard if we discover that there’s an overwhelming need for it.


Github also uses them :slight_smile:
