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
emojicdn.elk.sh/<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.
