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 🙏

CDK constructs for defining an interaction between an Amazon Kinesis Data Stream and an AWS Lambda function.




aws-kinesisstreams-lambda module

Stability: Stable

| Reference Documentation:|| |:-------------|:-------------|

| Language | Package | |:-------------|-----------------| |Python Logo Python|| |Typescript Logo Typescript|@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-kinesisstreams-lambda| |Java Logo Java||

This AWS Solutions Construct deploys a Kinesis Stream and Lambda function with the appropriate resources/properties for interaction and security.

Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition:


import { Construct } from 'constructs';
import { Stack, StackProps } from 'aws-cdk-lib';
import { KinesisStreamsToLambda } from '@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-kinesisstreams-lambda';
import * as lambda from 'aws-cdk-lib/aws-lambda';

new KinesisStreamsToLambda(this, 'KinesisToLambdaPattern', {
  kinesisEventSourceProps: {
    startingPosition: lambda.StartingPosition.TRIM_HORIZON,
    batchSize: 1
  lambdaFunctionProps: {
    runtime: lambda.Runtime.NODEJS_14_X,
    handler: 'index.handler',
    code: lambda.Code.fromAsset(`lambda`)


from aws_solutions_constructs.aws_kinesis_streams_lambda import KinesisStreamsToLambda
from aws_cdk import (
    aws_lambda as _lambda,
    aws_lambda_event_sources as sources,
    aws_kinesis as kinesis,
from constructs import Construct

KinesisStreamsToLambda(self, 'KinesisToLambdaPattern',


import software.constructs.Construct;


new KinesisStreamsToLambda(this, "KinesisToLambdaPattern", new KinesisStreamsToLambdaProps.Builder()
        .kinesisEventSourceProps(new KinesisEventSourceProps.Builder()
        .lambdaFunctionProps(new FunctionProps.Builder()

Pattern Construct Props

| Name | Type | Description | |:-------------|:----------------|-----------------| |existingLambdaObj?|lambda.Function|Existing instance of Lambda Function object, providing both this and lambdaFunctionProps will cause an error.| |lambdaFunctionProps?|lambda.FunctionProps|User provided props to override the default props for the Lambda function.| |kinesisStreamProps?|kinesis.StreamProps|Optional user-provided props to override the default props for the Kinesis stream.| |existingStreamObj?|kinesis.Stream|Existing instance of Kinesis Stream, providing both this and kinesisStreamProps will cause an error.| |kinesisEventSourceProps?|aws-lambda-event-sources.KinesisEventSourceProps|Optional user-provided props to override the default props for the Lambda event source mapping.| |createCloudWatchAlarms|boolean|Whether to create recommended CloudWatch alarms|

Pattern Properties

| Name | Type | Description | |:-------------|:----------------|-----------------| |kinesisStream|kinesis.Stream|Returns an instance of the Kinesis stream created by the pattern.| |lambdaFunction|lambda.Function|Returns an instance of the Lambda function created by the pattern.| |kinesisStreamRole|iam.Role|Returns an instance of the iam.Role created by the construct for Kinesis stream.| |cloudwatchAlarms?|cloudwatch.Alarm[]|Returns a list of cloudwatch.Alarm created by the construct|

Default settings

Out of the box implementation of the Construct without any override will set the following defaults:

Amazon Kinesis Stream

  • Configure least privilege access IAM role for Kinesis Stream
  • Enable server-side encryption for Kinesis Stream using AWS Managed KMS Key
  • Deploy best practices CloudWatch Alarms for the Kinesis Stream

AWS Lambda Function

  • Configure limited privilege access IAM role for Lambda function
  • Enable reusing connections with Keep-Alive for NodeJs Lambda function
  • Enable X-Ray Tracing
  • Enable Failure-Handling features like enable bisect on function Error, set defaults for Maximum Record Age (24 hours) & Maximum Retry Attempts (500) and deploy SQS dead-letter queue as destination on failure
  • Set Environment Variables
    • AWS_NODEJS_CONNECTION_REUSE_ENABLED (for Node 10.x and higher functions)
