We recommend testing out the visual editor locally to ensure your configuration works, especially as you learn how to customize the visual editor for your team.

  • You must run and use your own development server
  • Any branch can be used when working locally, since the local visual editor application doesn't listen for remote Git changes.

If you're not using local development, then the visual editing container runs your development for you and webhooks pull in changes pushed to the site's working branch. Note
