I was just wondering if anyone knows the emoji support that the Terminal.app has in MacOS? I'm using zsh, and I end up with this when I type it out, I get the following (note I didn't add a space after the flag on the first one, but added a space on the second one but in both cases you can see there's an overlap on the flag, also note the duplication on the spaces and f on the end of the input)

terminal input with overlapping emoji and text

And when using vim I also get

vim input showing overlapping emoji and text

How do people resolve this?

  • I usually add spaces after emojis to avoid that problem. – Capripot Mar 28 at 19:35
  • The emoji are double-width characters. – Marc Wilson Mar 28 at 22:50
