  • The source code is maintained over at SourceHut (I mean so you can send patches there, but you don’t need to be a hacker to contribute.
  • Instead you may reply to this topic indicating a good icon source (preferably 32x32 pixels, but an SVG source is best) and its licensing information (who owns the image? What rights are attached to it? How do we transmit owner’s consent to integrate this into our plugin?)


The code repository started as a fork of @eviltrout’s trout emoji but the leaner CSS approach from @cpradio’s vBulleting emoticons was adopted soon after — which happens to work thanks to @eviltrout’s emoji extender. Thanks to both for the inspiration and hard work, and thanks to the :discourse: team for an awesome forum software and fantastic community.
