I just like emoji. On Slack, Messages, everywhere. macOS helps us using it with its shortcut
⌘+⌃+Space. But can we automate it? Let say shortcut
⌘+⌃+1 would type 👍?
Yes, we can!
- First you need Alfred with powerpack (paid version). https://www.alfredapp.com
Download and open emoji collection. As Optional you can create your collection in
Snippets. Snippet tutorial.
Important In the same window opt-in option
Automatically expand snippets by keywordand
A->. As it says, this allows Alfred to replace
!et🤔 during typing.
Download and open emoji workflow. As Optional in
Workflowyou can create your own workflow that will trigger
NSAppleScript. Workflow tutorial.
- Set correct hotkeys by double-clicking on each
Hotkeynode and press your shortcut.
