Running on a Raspberry Pi 4, and one of my calendar feeds has emoji in the event names. When accessing the MM with a browser, they display fine; on the screen connected to the Pi, however, they’re just little squares.
I know this is more likely an electron, Node, or XWindows issue than MM itself, but has anyone found a solution for getting emoji to render properly?
Have you tried to write the emojis in HTML Codes?
For your cake emoji it would be:
remove the spaces between the & and #
Hope this helps!
That renders as the text, for some reason. However, the cake shows up properly after
apt install fonts-noto-color-emojiand a reboot.
I could not install the package above on my pi installation: package not found
sudo apt install fonts-symbolaworked. I just needed to restart the magicmirror service. Although, the emojis are not colored. But still better than the square
