How to call emoji picker outside of text fields?

Hi,

In Thunar's url bar as well from Gedit, when I click

ctrl + :

will appear the Emoji picker:

There is a way to call it from elsewhere, eg from Desktop and other applications? Eg Firefox, Gimp and LibreOffice?
The ideal would be to make a bash script hooked to a keyboard shortcut, also to be placed inside Whisker menu.

EDIT: LOL, the Emoji picker can also be called from calculator! (io.elementary.calculator), so only from GTK3 applications.

How about a separate app, emote?

Yeah, I am aware of Emote; but I would prefer to use the system emoji picker, also because I like ingenious solutions :-)
