Feature Request: Render Emoji shortnames in README.md


I’m playing around with a project (https://glitch.com/~emoji-picker) which is mostly just an import from https://github.com/OneSignal/emoji-picker

I noticed that GitHub renders emoji in the readme:
while Glitch does not:

It’s becoming pretty ubiquitous to be able to use shortnames e.g., :smile: and have them render as e.g., :smile: (just like in Discourse, as another example)… what’s it take to get the same in my Glitch readme?


Hello @nathan!

The editor now has support for emoji shortnames! We’ll soon add support in the community site too.

Thanks :slight_smile:


Nice! That was fast :racing_car::dash:
