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.

It seems this was flagged out of date when it isn't because the last release is still v13.1 at

I do not recommend building this from source, as the image conversions take ≈45 minutes on a modest 6yo PC.

@whynothugo answering your question from nine months ago... from upstream's documentation, supposedly this is "built from the Twitter Emoji for Everyone artwork with support for ZWJ, skin tone diversity and country flags." However, I don't find this to be the case.

I compared it to the original Twitter Emoji (packaged in the AUR as ttf-twemoji), and that already supports skin tones and country flags. Further, at least in the terminator terminal emulator, the original version has emoji in colour, whereas this package is only monochrome. FWIW neither support skin tones and country flags in terminator. I can't see any advantage of this package over ttf-twemoji, especially given the issues I mentioned earlier.

Has anyone else been having trouble with this font in GTK applications like Pidgin and Terminator? (I'm using KDE Plasma.) The glyphs are just blank. This font used to work fine in the past. I tried installing some of the other emoji fonts (ttf-twemoji noto-fonts-emoji nodejs-emojione) and they all worked fine.

Also, this has been out of date for quite a while now.

Installing and using this properly in KDE Plasma is incredibly confusing; can someone provide more accessible information on this or can an automated conditional solution for this be added to the PKGBUILD?

It looks like v13.1 was released almost three months ago, so this package is still out of date. Could you please update the package @Edgemaster or @eosrei?

Since the package is no longer out of date from what I can see it'd be nice if the flag could be removed

What's the difference between this and ttf-twemoji?

ttf-twemoji the same font, and they're render colourful pretty much everywhere.

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.
