[MOD][4.0+] Google Keyboard Custom Smilies - ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ノ DONGERS OR RIOT ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ノ

Google Keyboard has emojis. But not enough, what about when you're watching the excellent TwitchPlaysPokemon (as I write this, offline and in full riot mode) and need a wide range of "dongers" to input into chat in order to actually fit into the norm there?

That's why I made Google Keyboard Custom Smilies (from now, GKCS)

Here's what it does:
- Adds 124 preset "dongers" to the emoji keyboard's ":)" tab
- Limits the length of keyboard characters to 4, to prevent the UI looking horrible. Inputs are normal.
- Allows you to set your own labels for the inputs

You can also add your own custom text. It can be anything, from "" to the navy seals copypasta

And of course, it's fully customizable (order, delete what you don't want) and is material designed.

Please note that the inputting of Unicode symbols used in most of the emoticons requires the app to actually support them. If it doesn't, there's nothing I can do.

A few bugs in the module UX -

1. When deleting dongers, from time to time, random dongers get deleted. For example, I tap the delete icon for donger X. Instead, donger N gets deleted.

2. Each time I delete any donger, the entire list's order gets reset. That is, I had moved the dongers around to my liking. But as soon as I delete any donger, the sort order resets.

Please please please fix these. I don't think any LogCat is required for this, right?

How quickly are you rearranging the items? It has to reapply all the items to the preferences every time and that might lag behind

Looks like time doesn't matter in this case. I deleted the ones I wanted to delete and sorted the remaining ones in the order I wanted. I then left the phone on my desk and didn't touch it for 2 hours. After that, I opened hangout, opened the keyboard and saw that the dongers are showing up in the order I had set.

Next, I open your app and delete one more donger. Aaaanddd... the sort order again resets. :(

Do you know your way around a root file manager like Root Explorer? It would be useful if you could check the order of them in /data/data/com.quinny898.xposed.googlekeyboardcustomsmileys/shared_prefs/smileys.xml

Yesterday was my "murphy's law" day, I guess. Most of the bugs I reported on different module threads solved themselves right after the developer replied to my comment. I see the xml has correct index number for each of the dongers and they are in correct order in the keyboard.

Another request then.... The dongers are not quite distinguishable in the keyboard; because of their size. I can see only left half of them and hence can't easily identify which one I want to use. (Screenshot attached). Can their preview size be reduced in the keyboard; so that entire donger is visible?

Nope. I limited to them to 4 characters for that reason.
This is what it looked like without the limit when I was making it:

I think if you can mod the number of columns each donger occupies in the keyboard's grid, then this problem will get resolved. Right now, each emoticon and donger occupies one cell each. I don't know whether this is possible to modify though.

Google Keyboard has emojis. But not enough, what about when you're watching the excellent TwitchPlaysPokemon (as I write this, offline and in full riot mode) and need a wide range of "dongers" to input into chat in order to actually fit into the norm there?

That's why I made Google Keyboard Custom Smilies (from now, GKCS)

Here's what it does:
- Adds 124 preset "dongers" to the emoji keyboard's ":)" tab
- Limits the length of keyboard characters to 4, to prevent the UI looking horrible. Inputs are normal.

You can also add your own custom text. It can be anything, from "" to the navy seals copypasta

And of course, it's fully customizable (order, delete what you don't want) and is material designed.

Please note that the inputting of Unicode symbols used in most of the emoticons requires the app to actually support them. If it doesn't, there's nothing I can do.

That's pretty neat. Let the troll face ascii revolution begin.

    Contrary to what you may expect, this isn't abandoned

    I'm looking at the new keyboard now, and it seems to have a new way of doing key layouts, these are the two XMLs with the :) "symbol" in them:

    2016-05-10_19-16-34.png


    Interestingly, both of these files have symbols in them *not* on the keyboard, but I'm going to try changing them anyway
