Say you have developed a custom visual, how can you make an update and see the results quickly?
The approach below seems too slow for practical rapid interation and development.
The only way I know how to update a visual is:
For reference, the people in the linked posts below also seem to have struggled with the update process after a code change is made.
I hope code change iterations are not really this cumbersome!
Thank you -

Hi Sam (@v-chuncz-msft),
Can you please clarify which one of these is implied by your response?
I don't mean to be cynical, but to be frank (1) seems hard to believe. Consider that in everyday web development, when a code change is merely typed, the change can be automatically saved, compiled, and refreshed for display within a few seconds.
Thank you -
I'm not one of the developers. I mean the way I know to update an exising custom visual is to run command pbiviz package by using the PowerBI command line tools (recommended). For custom visuals that are not developed by new tools, you may try to rename the .pbiviz file to a .zip file, and change .css and .js file accordingly.
I wanted to provide timely response. Though there are currently a few limitations, we can see the progress regularly, so stay tuned.
