I built an API called EMOJICDN that lets you pass in any emoji and get a PNG for Apple’s artwork of that emoji.
For example: emojicdn.elk.sh/🤩
It uses the Apple versions of the emojis because I think those are the most recognizable and good-looking.
You can also use that link as the source of an img html element.
I also often use it as a quick and easy favicon:
<link rel="icon" href="https://emojicdn.elk.sh/🤩" />
The source code for the API is open source, and there’s more details at emojicdn.elk.sh.
