Buildkite supports over 300 custom emojis which you can use in your Pipelines and terminal output.

To use an emoji, write the name of the emoji in between colons, like :buildkite: which shows up as :buildkite:.

A few common emojis are listed below, but you can see the full list of available emoji on GitHub.

Name Emoji
:buildkite: :buildkite:
:one-does-not-simply: :one-does-not-simply:
:nomad: :nomad:
:algolia: :algolia:

Adding custom emojis

Add your own emoji by opening a pull request containing a 64x64 PNG image and a name to the emoji repository.

🚧 Buildkite emojis in other tools

Buildkite loads custom emojis as images. Other tools, such as GitHub, might not display the images correctly, and will only show the :text-form:.
