TIL Insert emoji on macOS -- without a mouse or extra software

I was very excited to learn that macOS supports adding emoji without the use of a mouse or a third-party app. It's awkward but it works:

  • Cmd + Ctrl + Space to bring up the emoji chooser
  • Type to search for the emoji
  • Use the arrow keys to navigate through the emoji
  • Press Enter to insert the emoji

  • Matthew Palmer's Rocket app also permits very easy emoji insertion. Users of vim are warned. The app relies on quite a bit of usage of the : character. It looks like it's possible to modify this behavior by changing the trigger keys.
  • You may need to make some changes to get Warp to play nicely with Rocket.
