This is a convenience method to install a pre-made Serverless Service locally by downloading the Github repo and unzipping it.
serverless install -u [GITHUB URL OF SERVICE]
Use this when you have made changes to your Functions, Events or Resources in
serverless.yml or you simply want to deploy all changes within your Service at the same time.
Use this to quickly overwrite your OpenWhisk Actions, allowing you to develop faster.
