Incredible discovery: the Unicode consortium report on emoji has an official ZWJ sequence example showing how you could implement cat fur colour patterns. Please tell me there are OSs that support this. http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51/#Emoji_Implementation_Notes
also, this has been implemented actually! 🐈⬛
@misty oh got damn it fedi
@misty most OSes don't even support the combined emoji for electrocutie yet
@email@example.com heart plus fire = ❤️🔥
@misty you can implement any ligature you want in your own fonts without waiting for unicode or os’s to implement anything.
granted, you wiuld still need to get people to install your font somehow, but yeah, this is just to say this is font level stuff
@misty iOS 14 has both regular 🐈 and black 🐈⬛ cats
@misty (specifically 14.2 or higher)
