grapheme extractor

world's simplest unicode tool

This browser-based utility extracts graphemes from Unicode. Anything that you paste or enter in the text area on the left automatically gets split into graphemes on the right. It supports the most popular Unicode encodings (such as UTF-8, UTF-16, UTF-32, and UCS-2) and it works with emoji characters. You can also adjust the separator to place between the extracted graphemes and add a counter to enumerate them. Created by encoding gurus from team Browserling.

᠎᠎᠎          Tool Options

Grapheme Separator

Place this character between
extracted graphemes.

Grapheme Enumeration

Put numbers in front of graphemes.
Select a predefined numbering
format, or a custom format.
If you choose a custom
numbering format, then
specify it here.

Grapheme Whitespaces

Spaces, tabs, and newlines remain
untouched in extracted graphemes.
Spaces, tabs, and newlines are replaced
by symbols "⎵", "⇥", and "↵" respectively.
Remove all spaces, tabs, and newlines.

What is a grapheme extractor?

This utility extracts individual graphemes from your Unicode text. A grapheme is the smallest unit of a writing system of any given language. It can be a character (such as the letter "a" of English alphabet or the letter "ö" of Finnish alphabet), a symbol (such as a right arrow "🡄 " or a left arrow "🡆"), an emoji (such as a smiling face with sunglasses "😎" or a face with stuck-out tongue "😜"), a hieroglyph (such as an Egyptian hieroglyph "𓁑" or "𓄿"), or even Zalgo text (such as "c̷̘͔͌̇h̴̞̤̀͋ä̵̬̫̔ò̵̞̮̇s̷̠̲̑͂"). In the options, you can set the output separator that gets placed between all graphemes, enumerate the graphemes and put a counter number before them. We added the three most common counter formats but you can also specify your own custom counter format. Another useful option that we added lets you manage the whitespace graphemes. You can process all spaces, tabs, and newlines untouched, visualize them by replacing them with special Unicode symbols, or remove them completely.


Grapheme extractor examples

Chicken Evolution

In this example, we split a chicken evolution illustrated with Unicode emojis into graphemes. We add numbering with parentheses to it and remove all whitespace characters to make meaningful graphemes more visible.

🥚 ➜ 🐣 ➜ 🐤 ➜ 🐓
1) 🥚 2) ➜ 3) 🐣 4) ➜ 5) 🐤 6) ➜ 7) 🐓
Required options

Place this character between
extracted graphemes.
Put numbers in front of graphemes.
Select a predefined numbering
format, or a custom format.
Remove all spaces, tabs, and newlines.

Unicode Greek Phrase

In this example, we use a saying attributed to the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, which translates to "I know that I know nothing." We extract all Greek graphemes from it and put pipe characters between them for better visualization.

ἓν οἶδα ὅτι οὐδὲν οἶδα
ἓ|ν| |ο|ἶ|δ|α| |ὅ|τ|ι| |ο|ὐ|δ|ὲ|ν| |ο|ἶ|δ|α

Put numbers in front of graphemes.
Spaces, tabs, and newlines remain
untouched in extracted graphemes.

Unicode Medals

In this example, we extract all graphemes from a list of Olympic emoji medals. We use a custom numbering format here and place the grapheme position number "%n" in square brackets. We also enable the option that visualizes all spaces, tabs, and newlines using special Unicode characters – space as a "⎵", tab as a "⇥", and newline as a "↵".

Gold: 🥇 Silver: 🥈 Bronze: 🥉
[1] G [2] o [3] l [4] d [5] : [6] ⇥ [7] 🥇 [8] ↵ [9] S [10] i [11] l [12] v [13] e [14] r [15] : [16] ⇥ [17] 🥈 [18] ↵ [19] B [20] r [21] o [22] n [23] z [24] e [25] : [26] ⇥ [27] 🥉
