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.
