Slack Hide Typing

I've written a very simple Chrome extension that prevents the Slack site from sending typing indications while you’re typing. My primary use case is so that I can type longer messages and use the text as a scratch pad without making others think that a message is incoming immediately.

Install in the Chrome web store. The source is on GitHub.

Update July 2019: I've been able to keep this updated with the new Slack architecture.
