Is App development on production install possible

If i used the production command ($ python --production --user frappe
) to install erpnext app. Can i now start app development by running (bench set-config developer mode 1) and then new-app etc

or can i do app development, only when i do “python --develop --user frappe”

Actually i dont have a linux machine, so i am using digital ocean.

Pls let me know.

Yes, You can do this. Run bench migrate after development_mode entry in config file.
