CTAN update: emo

Date: April 3, 2023 9:34:51 AM CEST
Robert Grimm submitted an update to the emo package. Version: 0.2 2023-04-01 License: lppl1.3c apache2 other-free ofl Summary description: Emoji for all (LaTeX engines) Announcement text:
Since we need our best humor on April 1, here are nicely improved emo•ji for all (LaTeX engines): * Use "emo-" prefix for graphics and font files to uniquely identify the package. * Use pdftex to extract files from emo.dtx without building documentation. * Include LaTeXML binding for conversion to HTML. * Replace broken lingchi.otf with working emo-lingchi.ttf—notice the .ttf extension vs the previous .otf. Under LuaLaTeX, drawing a box around 凌遲 resulted in a box with zero height—even though both fonts have the same OS/2 and hhea tables. Suspecting some issue with the CFF tables, I created a TrueType version, which works. Go figure!
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/emo The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/graphics/emo/

emo – Emoji for all ( engines)

Emo implements the \emo{'emoji-name'} command for including color emoji such as 🏝 (\emo{desert-island}) or 🦜 (\emo{parrot}) in your documents independent of input encoding or engine. The implementation uses the Noto color emoji font if the engine supports it and includes PDF graphics otherwise. The latter are automatically derived from Noto’s SVG sources, so the visual appearance is very similar.

Emo may come in particularly handy when dealing with academic publishers that provide only minimal support for non-Latin scripts.
