<RankedSwitch> picks the best child <Route> that matches
the path. Like <Switch>, it does not match deeply, so you
need to use /* on the path if you want to do that. Like
@reach/router's <Router>, it ranks the paths so you don't
have to think about ordering.
Con: You have to use /* to do deep matching

// We want to subscribe to some data. Here are 2 ways to do the SAME thing.
// 1. setup some state
// 2. subscribing to a uid, set posts when they come in
// 3. unsubscribing when the component unmounts
// 4. when the uid changes:
// - unsubscribing from prev uid
// - re-subscribing to the new uid

Travis CI + google-cloud-sdk + updated kubectl + Docker
View travis.yml
# The Google Cloud SDK on Travis is pretty old (2014). So if
# you want to use an up-to-date version, you have to install
# your own. This config is the bare minimum you'll need to
# get an updated version of the SDK + kubectl.
# We cache the SDK so we don't have to download it again on subsequent builds.
- $HOME/google-cloud-sdk
# Include the docker service so you can roll your own images.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
