inputEmoji is a jQuery plugin which provides a simple way to insert emojis into textarea and/or input elements.

Click the picker button next to the text field and select an emoji from the popup window. Done.

How to use it:

1. Load the inputEmoji plugin's script inputEmoji.js after you've loaded the latest jQuery library (slim build is recommended).

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.4.1.slim.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-J6qa4849blE2+poT4WnyKhv5vZF5SrPo0iEjwBvKU7imGFAV0wwj1yYfoRSJoZ+n" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src='inputEmoji.js'></script>

2. Initialize the plugin on the text field and done.

<textarea name="emoji" placeholder="type message here..."></textarea>
<input name="emoji" placeholder="type message here..." />
$(function () {
  $('textarea,input').emoji();
})

3. Customize the trigger emoji. You can find all emoji characters here.

$(function () {
  $('textarea,input').emoji({
    button: '&#x1F642;'
  });

4. Set the position of the trigger emoji. Default: 'before'.

$(function () {
  $('textarea,input').emoji({
    place: 'after'
