Installing Emojicode

🎩 Magic Installation

The magic installation is the easiest way to install Emojicode. Just select your operating system and the version you wish to install below (we’ve already tried to preselected them for you) and copy’n’paste the below commands into your shell. The script will download the appropriate Emojicode SDK and run the installer.

The installer will tell you what it is about to do and will prompt you for confirmation. By default, the installer will try to install Emojicode into /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/EmojicodePackages. If your user doesn’t have write access to these diretories you will either need to prepend ./ with sudo or provide a different install location like ./ ~/bin/ ~/EmojicodePackages.

We recommend that you choose the latest.
If you’re unsure, just leave it like it is.

Manual Installation

  1. Download the SDK for your system and extract the tar file. For instance:

    tar -xzf Emojicode-VERSION-YOUR-PLATFORM.tar.gz
  2. Run the script in the extracted directory:


    You can find more information about the installer above.

  3. Probably your system is not yet ready to display emojis. While Mac OS X is, you will likely have to install the ttf-ancient-fonts on Linux.

    sudo apt-get install ttf-ancient-fonts
