FAMOS speaks many languages!

FAMOS uses emojibase, which is an excellent library, meticulously curated. So, all the languages that emojibase supports, FAMOS automatically does too.

FAMOS is the fastest!

10x to 20x faster compared to alfred-emoji and EmojiTaco!

FAMOS launches in under 20 miliseconds (imperceptible), while both the other workflows take hundreds of milliseconds to launch (very much perceptible).

The reason FAMOS exists is that I wanted my emoji picker to:
 - launch instantly
 - search with zero lag
 - let me pick skin-tones for each individual emoji

Skin-tone prefs for each individual emoji

I like my emojis to reflect my skin-tone correctly. And also hair color! That means, I might not always get both. So, I want hand-emojis to have my skin-tone, but face-emojis to have my hair-color even if that means wrong skin-tone. In addition, if you're a stickler like me, you will understand that I want one skin-tone for the palm and a different one for the back of the hand. Back of the hand is a shade darker than the palm, isn't it!

  1. Search results show if an emoji has multiple tones available:
  2. Hold command:

  3. After pressing command+enter:

  4. From now on, the chosen tone becomes the default tone for this emoji:

Feature comparison

Both alfred-emoji and EmojiTaco are excellent workflows, and they have tonnes of features that FAMOS lacks, and has no plans of implementing. You should definitely check them out!

I'm kind of new here; hope it's okay to ask questions or comment.

This looks good!

My question--I looked up joypixels, and it appears that they have a set of nice-looking emoji to compete with Apple's.
