Description

I suggest replacing current emoticons in tiki with the natively supported emoji. The emoticons currently displayed in tiki currently look dated. The menu may be best replaced by a basic emoji menu, and have the unicode inserted directly into tiki pages.

The feature that replaces text emoticon representations with the picture based emoticons could also be changed to output the unicode emoji.

Replacing with emoji not only brings a facelift to tiki, but also has the potential of reducing tiki parser reliance-time, allows people to use emoji they are use to, and will help to optimize page load time.

Emoji is now supported in every browser we support with the exception of IE 9. ( currently holding 0.3% of popular use) http://caniuse.com/usage-table

All modern browsers/ OS's support color emoji. Legacy browsers (like IE 10 @ 0.27% usage) support non-colour emoji.

Presuming we are talking about Emoji support as outlined in Unicode 6, excluding the flag implementation, support is very good.

There are libraries available that use js or php to replace the unicode emoji with a standard svg library, such as http://emojione.com/developers/, but with such good support already it may not be worth implementing this, as long as we stick to Unicode 6 emoji.

I furthermore suggest that the emoji button on the edit page be removed altogether on mobile devices in favor of the built in emoji support. Desktop emoji still requires a tiki emoji menu IMHO.

This all of course hinges on the emoji bug: https://dev.tiki.org/tiki-view_tracker_item.php?itemId=6189 being fixed.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
