Is it possible to have an emulated version of Slash GraphQL or something locally we can use when developing our apps or running tests? I am migrating away from Firebase which has a brilliant local emulator that takes a copy a backend environment and provides an offline version to use (it also includes handling things like auth).
Here is a link to learn more - Introduction to Firebase Local Emulator Suite.
If this isn’t possible, are they are best practices with Slash GraphQL for local development and to run tests like end to end tests? Unit tests are easy as it makes sense to mock the responses but for end to end tests I find it is always better to keep the environment as close to production as possible (hence use a database instead of mocked responses). At the moment I think the best approach would be to create another backend (on the free tier) and copy across my production schema.
