Cyclic unicode shifter

World's simplest unicode tool

This browser-based utility cyclically shifts Unicode symbols. Anything that you paste or enter in the input text area automatically gets shifted to the right or left side in the output text area. It supports all Unicode symbols and it works with emoji characters. You can specify how many characters to shift and choose the shifting direction. Created by encoding gurus from team Browserling.

Cyclic unicode shifter tool What is a cyclic unicode shifter?
This utility circularly shifts Unicode text. In mathematics and group theory, a circular shift is also known as a cyclic permutation and it's performed element-wise. In this tool, the elements are Unicode graphemes. First, the input text is split into graphemes (graphemes are individual glyphs, such as letters, characters, symbols, and emojis) and then individual graphemes are shifted. If you select a right shift, then graphemes are rearranged to the right side. In this case, the last N ending characters (number N is the shift length that can be specified in options) are cycled to the starting N positions, and all remaining symbols are shifted to the right by N positions. This operation basically cuts off the tail of the input text and makes it the head. If you choose a left shift, then the opposite thing happens. The first N characters translate to the end, and all other symbols move to the beginning by the same number of positions. This operation cuts off the head and puts it as the tail. You can also activate the "Shift Lines Separately" option in which case, this permutation will be applied to each line individually.
Cyclic unicode shifter examples Click to use
Buddha's Quote
In this example, we circularly permute Buddha's quote that's written in the Fraktur blackletter typeface (a special Unicode font face). We shift the first three words to the left and get a new interpretation of this famous phrase. The first three words take exactly 15 positions (together with punctuation) and that's why the shift count is set to 15.
𝔴𝔥𝔞𝔱 𝔴𝔢 𝔱𝔥𝔦𝔫𝔨, 𝔴𝔢 𝔟𝔢𝔠𝔬𝔪𝔢.
𝔴𝔢 𝔟𝔢𝔠𝔬𝔪𝔢.𝔴𝔥𝔞𝔱 𝔴𝔢 𝔱𝔥𝔦𝔫𝔨,

Move this many symbols to the opposite side.
Shift Animal Emojis
In this example, we cyclically shift six emoji animals so that they are arranged by their speed. The first two emoticons – emoji hedgehog and emoji turtle are the slowest, so they are shifted to the left by 4 positions (including spaces). Shifting the head of the list to the left puts it at the end and now the speed list is correct.

Shift Fruit Emoji
In this example, we load a list of five fruits together with their names as input and move them by the six positions to the right. We activate the "Shift Lines Separately" option so that the fruit descriptions transfer from the end of the line to the start in every line separately.
