Is there any tool that helps choose Emoji to paste into the current document or program? Similar to the Emoji picking keyboard that appears in Android or iOS.
I know this question is very old, but I've also been interested in this matter for a while, so I've developed a simple emoji picker tool for Ubuntu.
The main issue with this approach is that you need to paste the emoji where you want it after choosing it.
You can go here for a good emoji picker: http://emojikeyboard.org
You can use pro emoji keyboard (or emojiselector) at http://emojiselector.com. They issued extension for Chrome, Opera, Firefox. This emoji keyboard is very cool with real feeling when typing.
