Will I be able to test my new source connector in the UI once it is added to source_definitions.yaml?

For local connectors you need to add your connector directly in the UI. See image, click in the button New connector
Adding to source_definitions.yaml you need to re-build Airbyte core to enable your connector.

What do yo mean re-build Airbyte core? I guess my question is, will my source (ChargePoint, a source not currently in Airbyte) need to be published in the master branch before I'll be able to use it? Or is there a way I can use the UI to run my source locally to see the functionality of the UI with a source I built?
Yes, you need to publish to master to see your connector when starting Airbyte
The reason is because when users download the docker-compose and env files to start Airbyte there isn’t the other config files. So Airbyte keep really simple the setup
