iMessage Emoticons

Does anyone know where to find a comprehensive list of all the ASCII strings that iMessage will convert to an “emoji/emoticon”?
I have found 20 by trial and error, but I’m sure there are many many more…

>: is a devil 0: is an angel :) is smiley

iMessage converts these to a picture emoji… I need the list of all the ones iMessage understands

Dear @Dave S hope this may help

Doesn’t help… I don’t want the pictures so much as the “text” that you would type in to get those pictures

>: 0: :) :( :D :P :> :0 :X :S :/ :@ :! :* :[ B) ;) ;P %) :3 D:

are some of the ones I know already

: 0: :slight_smile: :frowning: :smiley: :stuck_out_tongue: :> :0 :X :S :confused: :@ :! :* :[ B) :wink: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: %) :3 D:

as you can see… this forum knows some of those even

When you click on each of it then you can see details for each such as codepoints and shortcodes.
Collect them and make a table of it.

One more which I forgot :slight_smile:

I have been thru that table… and hardly any have a short cut listed, and those that do have one its not the emoticon format… its something :smiley: where I want the emoticon version :) or 8) not :sunglassees:… I didn’t ask this lightly… I did my research, and could not find what I needed…

iMessages does not understand the :name: shortcuts

but thanks

I will see when wake up if I can find you something regarding to it. You want ASCII based emoji not unicode.

Didn’t find a big list, just this: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/139262/list-of-emoji-substitutions-for-messages-in-mac-os-x

Edit: I bet there are more, I hope you can find them.

Alberto… THAT is what I was looking for… hoping there were more, but what you showed has 3 or 4 I hadn’t tripped over yet

correct… never did I mention unicode :slight_smile:

Not that it’s much help but the :smileyname: shortcuts are discord/slack and not related to iMessage.

Yes I have a list of over 900 of that format “names”… used extensively in GitHub… and I may or may not include them in the dictionary I’m building. I have 20 some odd that are supported by iMessage, and have added 1/2 dozen more from other sources. Seems there is no real “standard” for the text to emoji conversions

Don’t know if this would help?
