It's quite difficult to handle double width characters and emojis reliably on all modern terminal emulators
First, the application and terminal must agree which Unicode characters are double width, as in take up two cells and move the cursor by two positions. Terminals vary at this.
Second, many emojis aren't single Unicode characters. Those are single emojis generated from certain sequences of combining characters with a base characters. The application and terminal have to agree which sequences combine in this way. Terminals vary at this. Example: https://github.com/alacritty/alacritty/issues/3975
Third, IIRC some terminals treat emojis as moving the cursor by two positions, some do not.
Fourth the terminal might not be in UTF-8 mode so will treat the characters differently if it isn't.

A simple zero-config tool to make locally trusted development certificates with any names you'd like.Project mention: Running one’s own root Certificate Authority in 2023 | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-16
Looks like step-ca/step-cli  and mkcert  have been mentioned. Another related tool is XCA  - a gui tool to manage CAs and server/client TLS certificates. It takes off some of the tedium in using openssl cli directly. It also stores the certs and keys in an encrypted database. It doesn't solve the problem of getting the root CA certificate into the system store or of hosting the revocation list. I use XCA to create and store the root CA. Intermediate CAs signed with it are passed to other issuers like vault and step-issuer.
