Feature request: Integrate an emoji picker for MediaWikiChat
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Essentially you'd have an emoji icon next to the text field for submitting a message, and when you click on that icon, a pop-up modal would come up!

Here's a summarised version of how it'd basically work:

  1. The modal would grab the list from MediaWiki:Smileys and display each icon visually.
  2. Then you would click on the emoji you want to use :D
  3. Once it's clicked, it appears in the textbox. Whenever you're ready to submit your message, just press enter, tada!

Wouldn't they have to be added to the dropdown manually? MWChat's emoticons list is different from Wikia's list, where every possible "code" was under one file url, but here, each emoticon "code" is listed under its own file, even if they're the same. Example:
* :P NE3-1.gif
* :-P NE3-1.gif
Those both use NE3-1.gif, but are activated by different "codes".
