Hide your slacks to focus and get in the flow. Unhide them whenever you're ready.
Now you can hide your slack messages when using the web app. This lets you get in the flow and do more deep work. After you open the slack web app, click the "Hide messages" button to hide your messages. You'll still be able to search slack and use it as a reference, just without all the messages appearing in the left sidebar. When you're ready to view your messages, just click "Show messages". This extension only works for the web app. It doesn't work for the desktop app. View the code on github: https://github.com/mthurmond/slack-hider
