A Laravel 5 Package for Using & Working With Emojis in your Laravel Apps


PHP 7 and Composer are required.

To get the latest version of Laravel Emoji, simply add the following line to the require block of your composer.json file.

"unicodeveloper/laravel-emoji": "1.0.*"

You'll then need to run composer install or composer update to download it and have the autoloader updated.

Once Laravel Emoji is installed, you need to register the service provider. Open up config/app.php and add the following to the providers key.

  • Unicodeveloper\Emoji\EmojiServiceProvider::class

Also, register the Facade like so:

'aliases' => [
    'Emoji' => Unicodeveloper\Emoji\Facades\Emoji::class,


Translate Emoji names to Unicode and Vice-versa.

>> Emoji::findByAlias("kissing_heart")
=> "😘"

>> Emoji::findByName("sunglasses")
=> "😎"

>> Emoji::findByUnicode("\u{1F603}")
=> "smiley"

This package contains some of the characters listed on http://unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html


Please feel free to fork this package and contribute by submitting a pull request to enhance the functionalities.

I am accepting PR's that add characters to emoji.php. Please use this list to look up the unicode value and the name of the character.
