While reading EE docs https://developers.google.com/earth-engine/playground, something called my attention:
"Repositories can be accessed using Git, so you can manage and edit your scripts outside the Code Editor..."
I use EE online editor and I'm aware of possibilities git bring (I think). But I'm wondering in which circumstances it might be useful to be able to "...edit your scripts outside the Code Editor..."? I guess Code Editor mean the online one.
I understand, outside the online code editor the scripts might be edited as any file. But I cannot run/test them, at least not before uploading them back to EE. So I'll be doing some kind of blind changes. Perhaps I'm missing something.
