Development settings for web extensions

I'm trying to have different variables for my extension during development
so that during dev I can be sure not to hit the live server.

Is there a good (and failproof) way to do this?

I can think of:

 - Package the extension with a production variables file and do dev with a
dev variables file?
 - Use a setting to do this that is set when the extension is installed?
 - Tweak a file manually on dev and remember to untweak it before pushing
live (this is my current terrible process).
