Overview

An emoji is a pictogram, logogram, ideogram, or smiley embedded in the text and used in electronic messages and web pages. They can represent emotion, weather conditions, hand gestures, people, animals, objects, etc. They replace the conventional typographical style.

In Python, emojis can be printed using the emoji module provided in it.

Install the emoji module

pip install emoji

The emoji.emojize() function takes the parameter value as the CLDR short name.
