[Share Code] emoji to ui.Image or png file
The function below is pretty trivial. But opens up a door for more built in assets to use. I hadn't thought about it before like this.
import ui # Forum @Phuket2 # just an example function to turn an emoji char into a ui.Image # with option to save it as a png file, if you pass file_name. # the function is basic. does not try help you with the font_size # just about the idea of doing it, many more assets available to use def emoji_to_image(emoji_char, w =32, h=32, font_name = 'Arial Rounded MT Bold', font_size = 28, file_path = None): r = ui.Rect(0, 0, w, h) with ui.ImageContext(r.width, r.height) as ctx: # just draw the string ui.draw_string(emoji_char, rect=r, font=(font_name, font_size), color='black', alignment=ui.ALIGN_CENTER, line_break_mode=ui.LB_TRUNCATE_TAIL) img = ctx.get_image() # write a file if file_path if file_path: with open(file_path, 'wb') as file: file.write(img.to_png()) return img if __name__ == '__main__': img = emoji_to_image('💋', file_path = 'junk000.png') img.show() # displays in the console img = emoji_to_image('🇹🇭', w = 256, h = 256, font_size = 250, file_path = 'junk001.png') img.show() # displays in the console
Nice! The console's zoom effect works pretty well for that first example. 😀
The main reason I'm still including the (somewhat outdated) Emoji image set, instead of something like this (which allows using all the new Emoji) is that the image set has a higher resolution than the iOS emoji font.
Could be fun to combine something like this with
@omz , but maybe over thinking things like I do. In the infinity world, the best resolution is the best of course. But, I guess the reality usage would be 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 sized images. Not, exactly a time square poster size 😬
Maybe quantity over quality is preferable in this case.
I am really not sure.
I tried to link to a few repo's that had a json file with tags etc. for emoji's with requests. I kept getting a got a json error. I was not sure what happened. Probably a py3 thing that I didn't allow for. I was just thinking about a SQLite database. Not important. But as you can imagine, if you have the json feed, can do all the websites do and more
