EmoJS: Programming Javascript in Emoji

EmoJS is a neat little project I recently was told about. Essentially (as you may have gathered from the title) it allows you to write Javascript, in Emoji. That’s right, Emoji Javascript.

The world’s most popular language, now in the world’s most popular language

The Project’s Tagline

The idea is actually quite fun, though not terribly practical. The project is far from a 1.0 release, currently in Alpha on the 0.2.1 release. There are, at the time of writing, twenty-seven (27) different emoji characters that have been: three escape characters, twenty-two single characters, and two multicharacters. However, not all of these can be used; some being reserved for later implementation.

You can currently see two example sets of EmoJS on the github page, though I have a screenshot below, just so I can explain the idea a little better:

EmoJS Examples – MIT EmoJS (emojs.github.com)

These are some basic examples, just showing off what the project is intended to do. Not terribly practical, but quite fun. They plan on adding an option to try out the language further down the road, but this is still very much in the works.

Yeah, that’s about all there is about this project right now. If you’re a programmer and want to help out, check out the projects page on GitHub. And/or, if you’re curious about the code behind the project, you can check out the project’s repository page on GitHub.
