How to programmatically get an image for any emoji

January 1, 2021

I wanted to be able to get a PNG image of any emoji, so I built a quick API for it.

It’s called EMOJICDN, and all you have to do is go to<emoji> to get an image of that emoji. For example (try it!):🐢

By default, the API returns the Apple artwork for the emoji. However, you can pass in a ?style= parameter to get another platform’s artwork. A full list of supported styles is documented here.🐢?style=messenger
