Hello! Quick question: Is it possible to connect
@sanity/client
to local studio when developing? I want to try out some schema changes before deploying it.

Is this what I want to learn and use or is there some best practise way to test schema changes while developing? https://www.sanity.io/blog/getting-started-with-sanity-as-a-headless-cms#migrating-your-content-is-easy-c204f379a409

Exporting and importing your dataset can make a lot of sense for testing in this way. You’ll want to make a “development” dataset on your project and when you’re working locally, you can use a different dataset (https://www.sanity.io/docs/sanity-json#environments-933842c25dea )
When you’ve got that, you can import your production data into the development dataset to have a close approximation to your live data before testing your schema

That makes sense! Awesome, I'm gonna try it and also set up nightly backups to S3 and I'll sleep better 😄 Thanks! 🙏
