Version 2 of the Emojione set is no longer supported by EmojiOne Inc. (nor Ranks.com). Version 3 has a slightly different design and new, more restrictive licensing terms. Access to high-resolution bitmaps and vector sources is now restricted to paying customers. Some people prefer the flat cartoon design and the FOSS license with actual access to the SVG sources. Therefore, we created a fork of Emojione version 2.2.7 as Emojitwo with initial version 2.3. The artwork of this second generation of the web’s first complete open source emoji set is and will stay 100% free.

Differences from Emojione 2.2

Emojitwo is restricted to the artwork, i.e. image files. SVG is its native format. Everything else is derived from that.

As of its initial release in April 2017, Emojitwo did not contain any additional artwork.





Emojitwo shall eventually include graphics for new emojis:

Emojione Artwork Attribution

With the release of version 3.0, the Emojione project also made changes to 2.2.7’s licensing. Previously, Emojione did not require attribution for non-commercial and personal use. Considering that the Emojione project only changed the documentation in that branch to mandate attribution in any case, Emojitwo forked a state before those changes for greater flexibility.

For non-commercial and personal use, you should credit the creators. For commercial use, proper attribution must be given on every web page, app, or video description where our emojis are displayed.
