minor epiphany re: electron app's true nature

didn't want to lose my randomly updating settings on hyper once i found a scheme i was pleased w/ suddenly and what do i rememebr but the fact that its built on electron c'est-a-dire javascript

From hyper.is

Extensions are universal Node.js modules loaded by both Electron and the renderer process. The extension system is designed around composition of the APIs we use to build the terminal: React components and Redux actions.

cmd + opt + i

opens the entire application yeo!

A lil more elucidation

data exposure

Instead of exposing a custom API method or parameter for every possible customization point, we allow you to intercept and compose every bit of functionality!

The only knowledge that is therefore required to successfully extend Hyper is that of its underlying open source libraries.

Your module has to expose at least one of these methods:
