Slack Emoji Keywords Everywhere

January 13, 2016 osx

Using Slack all day at work quickly rewired my brain to expect Slack’s emoji keyword syntax to work everywhere, which unfortunately isn’t the case on OSX where using Emoji remains a pretty tedious process.

Enter Ben Hinchley’s aText file which extends support for slack-style emoji keywords across the entire OS. No longer does an enthusiastic 👍 in an iMessage get sent as a confusing :thumbsup:.
