Emoji Clipboard

Emoji Clipboard was born out of a previous tool I made to sort emojis by category. Just a bit of fun, like searching emojis related to 'France', 'Trump', 'Gender Inequality', 'Harry Potter' etc.

That tool was so CPU heavy I decided to ditch it, until I could find a way of rebuilding it in a fast and accessible way.

Well, during a weekend when I didn't want to do any real work, I finally used the data to create a new version of the tool.

How emoji clipboard is built. #

Eleventy #

Emoji Clipboard is a static site built using Eleventy. Eleventy is great for building static sites. It makes it easy to generate a seperate page for each category using FaunaDB as a backend. It's also got a great tool for pagination, used for the home page and 'most popular pages.'

The search and emoji counters were made with vanilla javascript, Netlify Functions, and FaunaDB.
