    Thanks for posting this video. This appears to be the same source code behind the demo previously published as "JavaScript injection in SharePoint Online" -- would you say this mechanism is the recommended approach to branding a site as the other video suggested?

    My concern is abandoning the design manager feature among other historical master page customization approaches. This approach of embedding/injecting JavaScript for branding SharePoint sites online seems hugely impractical with notable drawbacks not mentioned here.

    It would be nice to have definitive and formal product team guidance to branding SPO.
