Use of Emojis in Identity Generated Email Subject

This is purely aesthetics but I think it would be cool to be able to use emojis in the subject of Identity Generated emails.

I don’t know how this would work or the restrictions but I’m sure you all know, as developers we love emojis isn’t that right @jonsully :joy:

I’d love to see what you could do with this totally nonsensical request :))


Haha. Nice!! That’s awesome. I wonder if you could try with the escaped unicode variant? I doubt that field is ultimately parsed as HTML (I think that particular function happens in the Netlify Core API Ruby app, not in open source GoTrue) so it’s likely the escaped character would end up as text in the subject, but hey, if you want to try it and see, I’d love to find out!

Nope unfortunately not :cry:

You could try Unicode encoding: U+1F601

Or even raw hex (but I very much doubt this will work): \xF0\x9F\x98\x81


Feature request stands :stuck_out_tongue:

Yea, Is that on GitHub or… I’ve never done a feature request.

Ah, there isn’t a public repo where you could file that, but I have filed one for you and will let you know if it changes by posting a followup in this thread.

I do not expect it to change anytime soon since this is the first such feature request on the topic, and it feels like not-a-blocker to me (more of a nice-to-have), just to set expectations.
