About GiveMyEmoji 🔧


GiveMy*Emoji* is a collection of a Website and a Chrome Extension to help you find THE emoji that you need. It is developed using simple HTML, CSS, JavaScript and a lot of love. You see, no fancy words there! Surprise! We also have an Instagram Bot built with Selenium that sends you ASCII emoji in chat and an Instagram Filter built on Spark AR to throw Random Emojis!


Often we encounter situations where we are speechless, why not use emojis there instead? Unless you're talking to beep-bops 🤖 we guarantee you that GiveMy*Emoji* is definitely going to help you out!


With a super simple User Interface for Boomers and Babies, in both the website and the extension you have two buttons available with a Dataset of hundreds of emojis. When you click on I LIKE, the emoji on the screen is automatically copied, ready to spice up your bland conversations and if you click on I HATE, a new emoji is spinned up in no time! Magic!

If we talk about the Instagram Bot and Filter, when you send a Send me an emoji to the bot hosted over @givemyemoji on Instagram, it sends you random ASCII emojis, automated through a Selenium Script. The Filter, built using SparkAR is pretty easy to use, like every other Instagram Filter.
