Develop quickly, safely and free of charge with Firestore in the Emulator Suite
Tags: Ignite Talk

Local development with Firebase is faster when you use the Emulator Suite. Test your changes locally in a fraction of the time and often without the need for a build + deploy step. In this talk, we'll cover some common pain points that are made better when developing locally with the Emulator Suite, like pushing function changes to prod after testing locally so you know exactly how they'll behave in production and avoid a surprise bill. Lastly, we'll touch on how you can use the Emulator Suite to test rule changes locally to avoid unexpected outages in production.
