const data = [  { name: 'a-1', emojis: [['grinning', 'πŸ˜€']] },  { name: 'a-2', emojis: [['smiley', 'πŸ˜ƒ']] },  { name: 'a-3', emojis: [['smile', 'πŸ˜„']] },];
const getEmojiGroups = (queryText) => {  return data    .map((group) => {      return {        name:,        emojis: group.emojis.filter(          ([alias]) => alias.includes(query) || query.includes(alias),        ),      };    })    .filter((r) => r.emojis.length > 0);};
