Hotfix workflows

"Traditional" gitflow workflow

  1. Create hotfix-branch from release
  2. Commit to hotfix-branch
  3. Merge hotfix-branch into both release and develop

Created Jun 21, 2017
Proof-of-concept for making React components "safe" or "optional" by catching errors during rendering.
View safe-component.jsx
// Paste this into to see it working
// This function takes any component, and returns a higher-order (wrapper)
// component. This wrapper attempts to render the wrapped component, catching
// any errors.
const safeComponent = (Component) => function WrappedComponent () {
// Handle both class components and stateless functional components
const wrappedRender = Component.prototype.render || Component

Simplified approach for hydrating statically-rendered React components on the client.

const componentElement = document.querySelector(`[data-hydration-component-id="${componentId}"]`)
const props = JSON.parse(scriptEl.innerHTML)
import(componentId).then(Component => ReactDOM.render(<Component {...props} />, componentElement))
