Not all emojis are displayed correctly

See original GitHub issue

Hey! I’m currently working on some markdown that contains emojis and some of them are not displayed in the resulting pdf. Here’s a case to reproduce it.

I take this markdown:


Convert it width mdpdf --debug.

And as a result the thumbsup emoji is displayed, but the ledger is not.

Here’s how the debug html looks like:

        <p><img src="" alt=":thumbsup:" title=":thumbsup:" class="emoji-img emoji"><br>

Am I missing something here? I’ve briefly looked in your code and found that you’re using a library to convert emojis to images, but for some reason this does not happen for the 📒 emoji.

I was working on some materials that I wrote as markdown and wanted to publish as a PDF. I’ve done one and published it on I chose your tool because it seemed to be the easiest one to use.

However, now I don’t have much time to work on the project so thus the use case is gone. Otherwise, your project is great. This is the only issue I’ve encountered so far because I wanted to use some special emojis as a notation.

Keep up the great work!

@jelisejev that’s a shame but thanks, it’s rare I get feedback on the project, any chance you’d mind letting me know what your use case was and how it changed? I’m just curious, I see the downloads and the issues but don’t often get to know how people (attempt) to use the project.

No worries if it’s too much time to explain. None the less I’ll take a crack and this issue.
