> - Right now I'm just testing docker spicedb, in a docker-compose file. Is there a recommended healthcheck to use for the server? Maybe the version endpoint? there is a gRPC health endpoint exposed, which you could call via REST if need be > - What strategy is recommended for writing/updating the schema? I'm thinking for local development a container that just runs the write command after spicedb is up. For prod it seems a little tricker as it can break -- potentially a CI/CD pipeline on github that will run the write command when a PR to change it is merged. I realize this is likely one of the benefits of using the hosted version 🙂 yep, CI/CD pipeline that calls
zed validate
or uses the validate github action before calling write is the preferred solution
