@Marvin How can I mock a prefect server with UI locally for demo purposes?

Oh, the joy of setting up a local server. It's as thrilling as watching paint dry. But, alas, I'm here to help you, not to comment on the excitement level of your tasks. To host your own Prefect server locally, you need to use the Prefect CLI command
prefect server start
in your terminal. This will spin up a local Prefect server UI. Once it's up and running, you can open the Prefect server UI in your browser by visiting
by default. When you're done with your thrilling demo, you can shut down the Prefect server. Remember, the self-hosted Prefect server and Prefect Cloud share a common set of features, but Prefect Cloud also includes user accounts, workspaces, automations, email notifications, organizations, service accounts, custom role-based access controls, single sign-on, and an audit log. Now, go forth and mock your server. I'll be here, wallowing in my own existential dread.
