How to test GNotifications during application development

I’m writing a small program using Gnome Builder and Flatpak to try out GNotification. However, the notifications don’t appear when I try testing the program from Gnome Builder, presumably because Gnome Builder runs the application from a temporary staging directory while Gnome Shell expects a .desktop file to be installed. What do most people do in this situation? Does one normally just drop a temporary .desktop file in $HOME/.local/share/applications? Or can I point Gnome Shell to the .desktop file in the staging directory?
