Emojis in readme


I want to display a "๐ŸŒฑ"

Atlassian Bitbucket v7.6.1

I am very aware of the double colon shortcut (e.g. ":seedling:" for "๐ŸŒฑ") but I don't want to use this.

I am using utf8 file for READMEs and inside I just put a plain emoji.

When I open my in raw inside bitbucket I see the "๐ŸŒฑ" but when it's displayed by BitBucket I see :



There is some emojis that work. For example these ones are displayed as expected:



Is this normal ?

Hi Theng,

I'm not sure whether you are still facing this problem, but what you have reported here was in fact a bug that affected multiple Bitbucket versions, including the one you were running at the time this question was posted.

Should you still be running on version 7.6.1 and as a future reference for others that might come across the same question, here is the original bug report:

BSERV-10663 - Unicode emojis are garbled in markdown rendered view

It's been fixed on version 7.12 ๐Ÿ˜€.
