Extension size limits

I know some have run into trouble with their extension being too large to upload to Panic’s extension hosting. Is the maximum size documented anywhere?

A new feature in one of my extensions will probably require a compiled binary helper which, so far, is weighing in at a couple megabytes, with intel and arm both included.

I don’t believe this is documented anywhere. I can ask our web admin!

I’ve run into this with node_modules dependencies. I ended up installing them on-demand, instead of including them in the extension (https://github.com/apexskier/nova-extension-utils/blob/d0d4de82d8041b18baf36bb4d85eaffb9e35c7c4/src/dependencyManagement.ts#L165-L166).
