v12.0.1 of the font is now available, supporting Unicode and Emoji 12 standards.

A manual installation step is required to configure your default system font and install the configuration file.

Note: Usage with fonts that already include emoji codepoints may give inconsistent/broken results, Bitstream Vera Sans is the chosen as the default as it includes no emoji by default. For further details, please see the project's README file for a discussion of the issues.

I filed request for ttf-twitter-color-emoji-svginot to be merged into this package. This would mean transfer votes and comments, but actually if you search for "Twitter emoji" this package would not come up, so please add word "Twitter" to package description.

this should also provide emoji-font

Per upstream GitHub this project is dead thanks to licensing changes on the use of SVGs:

You'll want to switch to ttf-emojione as it is using the TTF provided by JoyPixels.

I'm not sure how much it makes sense to leave the two, especially when the other is orphaned, despite the differences in embedding styles. Do you think it makes sense to merge that one into this one despite that, or to leave the two? Having both is a bit confusing to users.

Edit: Hm, I see. On Discord for example, this package creates outlines for usernames with emojis on them but the other package gives them the full emoji. Strange.

This package distributes the font with colour SVG glyphs in the OpenType font file. I'm unsure of how the ttf-twemoji embeds the glyphs in the font (possibly as bitmaps or PNG, depending on intended application support, or monochrome outlines). I was unaware of this other package until now.

Edit: Yes, it appears that the fedora upstream of ttf-twemoji embeds the glyphs as PNG inside of OpenType: The different embedding styles have different application support, at the last time I checked, but the situation may have improved in the intervening 2 years.

Can I ask what the differences between this package and are beside the source? The latter has been orphaned, and before adopting it, I wanted to know why we couldn't just merge the two/

Installing this font makes it forcibly override all subtitle fonts in mpv, resulting in broken typesetting, so beware.

@r3b311i0n I follow your advice and it works great! I see all emojis right on Firefox. This package should be done that automatically.

@Neros I'm not using this font ATM, but it looks like another font includes the Star and Crescent glyph and Firefox is using that font (DejaVu Sans, Symbola, etc.) to display it instead of Twemoji.

You should install Bitstream Vera, symlink 56-ttf-twemoji-color.conf from /etc/fonts/conf.avail to /etc/fonts/conf.d, and rebuild fontconfig cache (fc-cache -fv), and see if it works.
You could also try blacklisting the offending font using a fontconfig conf:

Is there an issue with Star and Crescent in Firefox for you?

It appears white for me, I don't know why and it's the only one.
