Deploy an app to and continue Editing

I’d like to try to host a meteor application. I’m not sure what the best approach is to deploy an application that I would then continue to edit using development environment.

I’m going to start down the path of pushing up an app bundle but I fear that all the voodoo that occurs during the build chain will be lost. Any ideas?

I’m assuming I would host the database on another server to make the process a bit easier.
