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 🙏

AWS region information, such as service principal names




AWS Region-Specific Information Directory

cdk-constructs: Stable


Some information used in CDK Applications differs from one AWS region to another, such as service principals used in IAM policies, S3 static website endpoints, ...

The RegionInfo class

The library offers a simple interface to obtain region specific information in the form of the RegionInfo class. This is the preferred way to interact with the regional information database:

import { RegionInfo } from '@aws-cdk/region-info';

// Get the information for "eu-west-1":
const region = RegionInfo.get('eu-west-1');

// Access attributes:
region.s3StaticWebsiteEndpoint; //
region.servicePrincipal(''); //

The RegionInfo layer is built on top of the Low-Level API, which is described below and can be used to register additional data, including user-defined facts that are not available through the RegionInfo interface.

Low-Level API

This library offers a primitive database of such information so that CDK constructs can easily access regional information. The FactName class provides a list of known fact names, which can then be used with the RegionInfo to retrieve a particular value:

import * as regionInfo from '@aws-cdk/region-info';

const codeDeployPrincipal = regionInfo.Fact.find('us-east-1', regionInfo.FactName.servicePrincipal(''));
// =>

const staticWebsite = regionInfo.Fact.find('ap-northeast-1', regionInfo.FactName.S3_STATIC_WEBSITE_ENDPOINT);
// =>

Supplying new or missing information

As new regions are released, it might happen that a particular fact you need is missing from the library. In such cases, the Fact.register method can be used to inject FactName into the database:

  region: 'bermuda-triangle-1',
  name: regionInfo.FactName.servicePrincipal(''),
  value: '',

Overriding incorrect information

In the event information provided by the library is incorrect, it can be overridden using the same Fact.register method demonstrated above, simply adding an extra boolean argument:

  region: 'us-east-1',
  name: regionInfo.FactName.servicePrincipal(''),
  value: '',
}, true /* Allow overriding information */);

If you happen to have stumbled upon incorrect data built into this library, it is always a good idea to report your findings in a GitHub issue, so we can fix it for everyone else!
