Manual Installation

If instead you prefer to manually install, first create a block with the text {{[[roam/js]]}} on any page in your Roam DB. Then, copy and paste this code block as a child of the block.

var existing = document.getElementById("roamjs-emojis");
if (!existing) {
  var extension = document.createElement("script");
  extension.src = "https://roamjs.com/emojis.js";
  extension.id = "roamjs-emojis";
  extension.async = true;
  extension.type = "text/javascript";


The script supports the following configuration attributes, to be added in the [[roam/js/emojis]] page:

  • Minimum Characters - (Optional) The minimum number of characters needed to show the emoji menu, defaulted to 2 just like in slack.

In a block, start typing with a colon, the name of the emoji, followed by an ending colon. The script will replace the colon'ed phrase with the supported emoji.

To view all available emojis, they could be found in the following JSON file.
