An Alfred workflow that makes it easy to search for emoji and copy them to the clipboard .
Note About Available Emoji
The workflow is built against the latest available macOS within the GitHub continuous integration infrastructure. This means some emoji may be missing until the GitHub infrastructure is updated. It also means that some emoji may be present in the workflow that do not exist on your system if your system is running an earlier version of macOS.
If this is not desired, follow the instructions below for generating the workflow on your own system.

Press shift+return (): Copy the default symbol of the selected emoji) (e.g. ) to your clipboard without skin tone modifier.
Press cmd+return (): Paste the symbol of the selected emoji (e.g. ) directly to your frontmost application.
To change the emoji skin tone for supported emoji set the
skin_tone environment variable in Alfred:
random=> | | | |
After setting skin tone you can still quickly copy the default emoji with the shift modifier.
This workflow will automatically check for updates at most once per day. If a new release is found, it automatically downloads and installs the latest version of the workflow. All downloads come directly from official GitHub releases.
Trigger the workflow with either a custom hotkey or a custom snippet.
