how to get description of emoji

Hi everyone.

I wonder, whether is it possible to get description of emoji in COS.

For example, I have data with emojis like 🙏 in database, that should be delivered to transaction system via service. But service doesn't support emojis, so I want to convert emoji to its unicode description like "Person with Folded Hands". Is it possible? I'll be grateful for help

You can do it by yourself. I would recommend looking at the page of all emoji list in Unicode. There you may find a link to the latest version of data in text files, which will be possible to parse quite easily with ObjectScript. So, you can just import that data and use it as you want. And you will need to update it regularly when it gets some new emojis.
