It is possible to develop software for the Librem 5 without a development kit. If you are developing applications that do not rely on specific features of the phone, or that only need to be tested for use on a small screen, it can be practical to use an emulator to help with development.
Also take a look at the Mini-Tutorials page for some common commands and some application setup that is not board specific.
