Set Touch Bar button haptic feedback to trigger on press down instead of/in addition to lift up

I love the haptic feedback option, but the only setting for it is currently is to vibrate on lift up, which feels terrible. There should be three options, I think: On down, on up, and on down and up.

I would like to see the touch-bar haptic feedback to fire on both the initial press and the release, just like the trackpad does.

So, I found an app that does exactly this:

I've disabled BTT's internal haptic settings and switched entirely to using HapticKey, it's much better.

just be aware that the approach used in Haptic Key uses quite a bit of CPU for what it does, not only when touching the Touchbar but also when touching the trackpad.
I will probably add this as an option soon.
