    The unpacked extension doesn't work for regular profiles since Chromium forbids loading folders beginning with an underscore.

    The work-around is as follows:

    1. Build extension
    2. Open Chromium's "extensions" page
    3. Enable developer mode
    4. Click "Pack Extension" button and point to the build directory
    5. Chromium will automatically generate a signing key, zip the build directory, and generate the crx
    6. Drag and drop the crx into the extensions page, or open the crx file with Chromium.

    Don't lose the .pem key or else you will need to back up your settings and uninstall the old version of the extension before upgrading.

    A neat proof of concept, but this seems like a massive step backwards in terms of security and privacy.

    Too bad they didn't mention anything about A1/A2 beta-casein.

    It looks like that is the maintainer's goal https://www.reddit.com/r/neovim/comments/ae7ef6/comment/ednq9hz

    Hopefully a higher quality editor justifies a modest price-tag - my vision for Oni 2 is that we can get the speed/performance of Sublime, language ecosysten/integration/tooling of VSCode, and the modal editing experience of (neo)vim - in one package. We didn't achieve this yet with Oni 1.

    Interesting that the Yale lecturer was using CopperheadOS, but nobody should be using Copperhead at this point in time. The last version from Daniel Micay (the technical lead behind CopperheadOS, now working on Android Hardening with sample AOSP builds now available) is horribly out of date and the current OS by that company is not developed with security in mind.

    For more information on why one shouldn't use the product offered by the Copperhead company:
    Last post "Goodbye" by /u/strncat (Daniel Micay's suspended account)
    "Stop Using This", a post on the Copperhead subreddit warning about the risks of remaining on the last build Daniel pushed out plus a response from Daniel's new account /u/DanielMicay.
