What are your favourite emoji to use in build pipelines?

I absolutely love using emojis in things like build pipelines or documentation. I find a list like this:

  • Run Tests
  • Lint
  • Build artefact

Is a whole lot easy to read when it has emojis:

  • ๐Ÿงช Run tests
  • ๐Ÿ”Ž Lint
  • ๐Ÿ— Build artefact

The emojis give very quick identifiable reference points - in what otherwise might look like a wall of text.

So what are your favourite emojis to use for common terms?

Here's some of mine:
