Pidgin emoticon iOS support

Hello. I use XMPP in a iOS app of mine and i just implemented emoticon support. Now when i use pidgin with the same chat all the emoticons turned to this "\ud83d\ude03" etc. Is there a codec for this?

Re: Pidgin emoticon iOS support

Good evening,

I am just guessing with this advice, btw.

What character were you trying to send? Because it looks like you are sending something that is specific to a particular font:

If you are sending Emoji then that is really dependant on the receiver having the font installed to display them, I see that Mac OSX10.7 and Windows 8 support them [1]. However the majority of desktop users probably are going to require to send an image instead.

Phil


P.S. On a side note I found this which made me chuckle:
"So it would seem that, to cut a long story short, Apple’s emoji are directly incompatible with every other handset in the world."

Re: Pidgin emoticon iOS support

Hi Phil

Thank you for your very fast answer.

I really don't know what they are called. But i guess they could be called Emoji since they are sent on a iOS device. It's the users of the app that use them and I'm the one who receives them via pidgin. I'm using Windows 8 so should i be able to read the somehow? I do not care about sending emoticons back to the users. I just want to read them :)

Re: Pidgin emoticon iOS support

Hi again,

I would look up the font name that is being applied to the messages. You might be able to see this in Pidgin's debug window as part of the XMPP messages. Once you know the font name, you could check that it is actually installed on the computer, then you could look to see if it usable with GTK which Pidgin uses.

Re: Pidgin emoticon iOS support

Hi Phil

I found out it is Emoji. And i can see i can import Emoji smileys using this https://github.com/VxJasonxV/emoji-for-pidgin But one thing that i do not understand is. Where do i find the tar.gz file? I don't have to create one myself do I?

Re: Pidgin emoticon iOS support

Hi Sebastian,

If you read the emoji-for-pidgin's read me it has a hyperlink to the file to download:


You then open Pidgins Preferences screen, select the "Themes" tab, then drag and drop the tar.gz onto the "Smiley Theme" drop down list. It will then load it into there for you to select.

I cannot prove it works but it certainly looks like it should.

Regards
Phil

Damn it, there's only 5 hours of it left, I'll try and make sure the rest is wonderful. ;-)

Glad to hear it worked.
