Last year I created a plugin for Remark to add accessible descriptions to Emoji: @fec/remark-a11y-emoji. Today I'm happy to announce that I released version 2.0.0.

The main new feature is support for skin colors: ✌🏿✌🏾✌🏽✌🏼✌🏻. Many thanks to Amira Hailemariam for providing the pull request with this feature.

In addition I added a real build process, switch to using import, updated all dependencies and bumped the minimum node version to v10.x.

You can install the library with:

npm install -@fec/remark-a11y-emoji

Then you can use the plugin with Remark:

import remark from 'remark';
import a11yEmoji from '@fec/remark-a11y-emoji';

const processor = remark().use(a11yEmoji);
