Yet another Emoji Picker for Flutter 🤩

Note: This package is based on emoji_picker which has been deprecated and not maintained anymore. Therefore I decided to create a modernized version of it and fixing existing issues.

Key features

  • Lightweight Package
  • Faster Loading
  • Null-safety
  • Completely customizable
  • Material Design and Cupertino mode
  • Emojis that cannot be displayed are filtered out (Android Only)
  • Optional recently used emoji tab

Getting Started

    onEmojiSelected: (category, emoji) {
        // Do something when emoji is tapped
    config: Config(
        columns: 7,
        emojiSizeMax: 32.0,
        verticalSpacing: 0,
        horizontalSpacing: 0,
        initCategory: Category.RECENT,
        bgColor: Color(0xFFF2F2F2),
        iconColor: Colors.grey,
        showRecentsTab: true,
        recentsLimit: 28,
        noRecentsText: "No Recents",
            const TextStyle(fontSize: 20, color: Colors.black26),
        categoryIcons: const CategoryIcons(),
        buttonMode: ButtonMode.MATERIAL

Custom view

The appearance is completely customizable by setting customWidget property. If properties in Config are not enough you can inherit from EmojiPickerBuilder (recommended but not necessary) to make further adjustments.

class CustomView extends EmojiPickerBuilder {
    CustomView(Config config, EmojiViewState state) : super(config, state);

    _CustomViewState createState() => _CustomViewState();

class _CustomViewState extends State<CustomView> {
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
        // TODO: implement build
        // Access widget.config and widget.state
        return Container();

    onEmojiSelected: (category, emoji) { /* ...*/ },
    config: Config( /* ...*/ ),
    customWidget: (config, state) => CustomView(config, state),
