Running webapp on its own?

Is there a way to run the web front-end (the -webapp repo) on its own without the server, and have it connect to a remote server? Not seeing a way but seems like that’s basically how the desktop app works?

@grundleborg Would someone on the dev team be familiar with this?

@dfeldman, unfortunately the webapp is not bundled in such a way to run standalone. For debugging purposes, there is the webpack dev-server which is of some use against a remote server. I’ve also used Charles as a proxy to debug before, but not in a production sense.
