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 🙏

Amazon EventBridge Construct Library




Amazon EventBridge Construct Library

cfn-resources: Stable

cdk-constructs: Stable

Amazon EventBridge delivers a near real-time stream of system events that describe changes in AWS resources. For example, an AWS CodePipeline emits the State Change event when the pipeline changes its state.

  • Events: An event indicates a change in your AWS environment. AWS resources can generate events when their state changes. For example, Amazon EC2 generates an event when the state of an EC2 instance changes from pending to running, and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling generates events when it launches or terminates instances. AWS CloudTrail publishes events when you make API calls. You can generate custom application-level events and publish them to EventBridge. You can also set up scheduled events that are generated on a periodic basis. For a list of services that generate events, and sample events from each service, see EventBridge Event Examples From Each Supported Service.
  • Targets: A target processes events. Targets can include Amazon EC2 instances, AWS Lambda functions, Kinesis streams, Amazon ECS tasks, Step Functions state machines, Amazon SNS topics, Amazon SQS queues, Amazon CloudWatch LogGroups, and built-in targets. A target receives events in JSON format.
  • Rules: A rule matches incoming events and routes them to targets for processing. A single rule can route to multiple targets, all of which are processed in parallel. Rules are not processed in a particular order. This enables different parts of an organization to look for and process the events that are of interest to them. A rule can customize the JSON sent to the target, by passing only certain parts or by overwriting it with a constant.
  • EventBuses: An event bus can receive events from your own custom applications or it can receive events from applications and services created by AWS SaaS partners. See Creating an Event Bus.


The Rule construct defines an EventBridge rule which monitors an event based on an event pattern and invoke event targets when the pattern is matched against a triggered event. Event targets are objects that implement the IRuleTarget interface.

Normally, you will use one of the source.onXxx(name[, target[, options]]) -> Rule methods on the event source to define an event rule associated with the specific activity. You can targets either via props, or add targets using rule.addTarget.

For example, to define an rule that triggers a CodeBuild project build when a commit is pushed to the "master" branch of a CodeCommit repository:

declare const repo: codecommit.Repository;
declare const project: codebuild.Project;

const onCommitRule = repo.onCommit('OnCommit', {
  target: new targets.CodeBuildProject(project),
  branches: ['master']

You can add additional targets, with optional input transformer using eventRule.addTarget(target[, input]). For example, we can add a SNS topic target which formats a human-readable message for the commit.

For example, this adds an SNS topic as a target:

declare const onCommitRule: events.Rule;
declare const topic: sns.Topic;

onCommitRule.addTarget(new targets.SnsTopic(topic, {
  message: events.RuleTargetInput.fromText(
    `A commit was pushed to the repository ${codecommit.ReferenceEvent.repositoryName} on branch ${codecommit.ReferenceEvent.referenceName}`

Or using an Object:

declare const onCommitRule: events.Rule;
declare const topic: sns.Topic;

onCommitRule.addTarget(new targets.SnsTopic(topic, {
  message: events.RuleTargetInput.fromObject(
      DataType: `custom_${events.EventField.fromPath('$.detail-type')}`


You can configure a Rule to run on a schedule (cron or rate). Rate must be specified in minutes, hours or days.

The following example runs a task every day at 4am:

import { Rule, Schedule } from '@aws-cdk/aws-events';
import { EcsTask } from '@aws-cdk/aws-events-targets';
import { Cluster, TaskDefinition } from '@aws-cdk/aws-ecs';
import { Role } from '@aws-cdk/aws-iam';

declare const cluster: Cluster;
declare const taskDefinition: TaskDefinition;
declare const role: Role;

const ecsTaskTarget = new EcsTask({ cluster, taskDefinition, role });

new Rule(this, 'ScheduleRule', {
 schedule: Schedule.cron({ minute: '0', hour: '4' }),
 targets: [ecsTaskTarget],

If you want to specify Fargate platform version, set platformVersion in EcsTask's props like the following example:

declare const cluster: ecs.Cluster;
declare const taskDefinition: ecs.TaskDefinition;
declare const role: iam.Role;

const platformVersion = ecs.FargatePlatformVersion.VERSION1_4;
const ecsTaskTarget = new targets.EcsTask({ cluster, taskDefinition, role, platformVersion });

Event Targets

The @aws-cdk/aws-events-targets module includes classes that implement the IRuleTarget interface for various AWS services.

The following targets are supported:

  • targets.CodeBuildProject: Start an AWS CodeBuild build
  • targets.CodePipeline: Start an AWS CodePipeline pipeline execution
  • targets.EcsTask: Start a task on an Amazon ECS cluster
  • targets.LambdaFunction: Invoke an AWS Lambda function
  • targets.SnsTopic: Publish into an SNS topic
  • targets.SqsQueue: Send a message to an Amazon SQS Queue
  • targets.SfnStateMachine: Trigger an AWS Step Functions state machine
  • targets.BatchJob: Queue an AWS Batch Job
  • targets.AwsApi: Make an AWS API call

Cross-account and cross-region targets

It's possible to have the source of the event and a target in separate AWS accounts and regions:

import { App, Stack } from '@aws-cdk/core';
import * as codebuild from '@aws-cdk/aws-codebuild';
import * as codecommit from '@aws-cdk/aws-codecommit';
import * as targets from '@aws-cdk/aws-events-targets';

const app = new App();

const account1 = '11111111111';
const account2 = '22222222222';

const stack1 = new Stack(app, 'Stack1', { env: { account: account1, region: 'us-west-1' } });
const repo = new codecommit.Repository(stack1, 'Repository', {
  repositoryName: 'myrepository',

const stack2 = new Stack(app, 'Stack2', { env: { account: account2, region: 'us-east-1' } });
const project = new codebuild.Project(stack2, 'Project', {
  // ...

repo.onCommit('OnCommit', {
  target: new targets.CodeBuildProject(project),

In this situation, the CDK will wire the 2 accounts together:

  • It will generate a rule in the source stack with the event bus of the target account as the target
  • It will generate a rule in the target stack, with the provided target
  • It will generate a separate stack that gives the source account permissions to publish events to the event bus of the target account in the given region, and make sure its deployed before the source stack

For more information, see the AWS documentation on cross-account events.


It is possible to archive all or some events sent to an event bus. It is then possible to replay these events.

const bus = new events.EventBus(this, 'bus', {
  eventBusName: 'MyCustomEventBus'

bus.archive('MyArchive', {
  archiveName: 'MyCustomEventBusArchive',
  description: 'MyCustomerEventBus Archive',
  eventPattern: {
    account: [Stack.of(this).account],
  retention: Duration.days(365),

Granting PutEvents to an existing EventBus

To import an existing EventBus into your CDK application, use EventBus.fromEventBusArn, EventBus.fromEventBusAttributes or EventBus.fromEventBusName factory method.

Then, you can use the grantPutEventsTo method to grant event:PutEvents to the eventBus.

declare const lambdaFunction: lambda.Function;

const eventBus = events.EventBus.fromEventBusArn(this, 'ImportedEventBus', 'arn:aws:events:us-east-1:111111111:event-bus/my-event-bus');

// now you can just call methods on the eventbus
