A new release of Fargo today with one small feature, Emojis.

A good friend showed them to me, a few weeks ago on a trip to San Francisco. I was immediately won over. Charmed by them. It's a new fun language.

Colorful and cute and somewhat irreverent.


The best part is that there's a syntax for Emojis in text-based apps like Fargo.

For example, :baseball: gets you the Emoji for :baseball:

There's a list of all the codes on the Emoji Cheat Sheet.

As you can see this syntax is already supported by lots of famous apps including Campfire and GitHub. Add Fargo to the list.

Turning it off and on

The new Emoji feature is on by default, you can turn it off with a # attribute:

#flEmojify "false"

Thanks to

We're using the Emojify toolkit. It went in real easy. Thank you.
