I would like to enter emojis directly from the keyboard. E.g. that I type ‘:D’ and it gets converted to ‘😀’. Is that possible?
I know about the control + command + space shortcut to open the emoji palette, but I am looking for a faster way.
There is a nice application called Rocket which enables you the Slack-way of typing emojis:
: (colon) followed by the emoji's name and it offers a popover with autocompletions.
