Yeah, exactly. Maybe in future they'll fix this DX issue of getting setup. But as you say the backend MUST be hardcoded (without some hacking) and therefore it must be created as a two step process where the first step is running on local (or some other backend other than the one you're configuring). It's a shame really... I imagine at some point this will get addressed. Glad you were able to follow through the tutorial though! At least the explanation wasn't terrible ! 😂
