Actually there is already a module in the npm registry called "emoji" https://www.npmjs.com/package/emoji but it seems less popular (963 downloads in the last month against 1.856.808 downloads in the same period for node-emoji). The github repo is also stuck at 2014-07-05 whereas node-emoji is more active. The policy within Debian is whoever gets there first can get hold of a package name but I'd prefer to reach a consensus among us. Paolo
