emocli is a little bash script, which is able to display most of the emoticons and symbols found in Wikipedia articles about Unicode and Charsets. The tool does not present an overview and is not meant as a replacement for gnome-characters, but better suited to test the capabilities of different terminal emulators: The script can add modifiers to the smilies and request a text-only representation by doing so. Not all terminal emulators support that today. You can also use it to test ’new’ standards, e.g. the emoticons skin color tone after Fitzpatrick and wonder how few emoticons are supported at this time.
