Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.


Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

The CDK Construct Library for AWS::ECR




Amazon ECR Construct Library

cfn-resources: Stable

cdk-constructs: Stable

This package contains constructs for working with Amazon Elastic Container Registry.


Define a repository by creating a new instance of Repository. A repository holds multiple verions of a single container image.

const repository = new ecr.Repository(this, 'Repository');

Image scanning

Amazon ECR image scanning helps in identifying software vulnerabilities in your container images. You can manually scan container images stored in Amazon ECR, or you can configure your repositories to scan images when you push them to a repository. To create a new repository to scan on push, simply enable imageScanOnPush in the properties

const repository = new ecr.Repository(this, 'Repo', {
  imageScanOnPush: true,

To create an onImageScanCompleted event rule and trigger the event target

declare const repository: ecr.Repository;
declare const target: SomeTarget;


Authorization Token

Besides the Amazon ECR APIs, ECR also allows the Docker CLI or a language-specific Docker library to push and pull images from an ECR repository. However, the Docker CLI does not support native IAM authentication methods and additional steps must be taken so that Amazon ECR can authenticate and authorize Docker push and pull requests. More information can be found at at Registry Authentication.

A Docker authorization token can be obtained using the GetAuthorizationToken ECR API. The following code snippets grants an IAM user access to call this API.

const user = new iam.User(this, 'User');

If you access images in the Public ECR Gallery as well, it is recommended you authenticate to the registry to benefit from higher rate and bandwidth limits.

See Pricing in and Service quotas.

The following code snippet grants an IAM user access to retrieve an authorization token for the public gallery.

const user = new iam.User(this, 'User');

This user can then proceed to login to the registry using one of the authentication methods.

Image tag immutability

You can set tag immutability on images in our repository using the imageTagMutability construct prop.

new ecr.Repository(this, 'Repo', { imageTagMutability: ecr.TagMutability.IMMUTABLE });

Automatically clean up repositories

You can set life cycle rules to automatically clean up old images from your repository. The first life cycle rule that matches an image will be applied against that image. For example, the following deletes images older than 30 days, while keeping all images tagged with prod (note that the order is important here):

declare const repository: ecr.Repository;
repository.addLifecycleRule({ tagPrefixList: ['prod'], maxImageCount: 9999 });
repository.addLifecycleRule({ maxImageAge: Duration.days(30) });
