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 AWS Lambda to AWS Elasticsearch with Kibana integration




aws-lambda-elasticsearch-kibana module

Stability: Experimental

All classes are under active development and subject to non-backward compatible changes or removal in any future version. These are not subject to the Semantic Versioning model. This means that while you may use them, you may need to update your source code when upgrading to a newer version of this package.

This AWS Solutions Construct implements the AWS Lambda function and Amazon Elasticsearch Service with the least privileged permissions.

Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition:


import { Construct } from 'constructs';
import { Stack, StackProps, Aws } from 'aws-cdk-lib';
import { LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibana } from '@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-lambda-elasticsearch-kibana';
import * as lambda from "aws-cdk-lib/aws-lambda";

const lambdaProps: lambda.FunctionProps = {
  code: lambda.Code.fromAsset(`lambda`),
  runtime: lambda.Runtime.NODEJS_14_X,
  handler: 'index.handler'

new LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibana(this, 'sample', {
  lambdaFunctionProps: lambdaProps,
  domainName: 'testdomain',
  // TODO: Ensure the Cognito domain name is globally unique
  cognitoDomainName: 'globallyuniquedomain' + Aws.ACCOUNT_ID


from aws_solutions_constructs.aws_lambda_elasticsearch_kibana import LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibana
from aws_cdk import (
    aws_lambda as _lambda,
from constructs import Construct

lambda_props = _lambda.FunctionProps(

LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibana(self, 'sample',
                            # TODO: Ensure the Cognito domain name is globally unique
                            cognito_domain_name='globallyuniquedomain' + Aws.ACCOUNT_ID


import software.constructs.Construct;


new LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibana(this, "sample",
        new LambdaToElasticSearchAndKibanaProps.Builder()
                .lambdaFunctionProps(new FunctionProps.Builder()
                // TODO: Ensure the Cognito domain name is globally unique
                .cognitoDomainName("globallyuniquedomain" + Aws.ACCOUNT_ID)

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.| |esDomainProps?|elasticsearch.CfnDomainProps|Optional user provided props to override the default props for the Elasticsearch Service| |domainName|string|Domain name for the Cognito and the Elasticsearch Service| |cognitoDomainName?|string|Optional Cognito Domain Name, if provided it will be used for Cognito Domain, and domainName will be used for the Elasticsearch Domain| |createCloudWatchAlarms|boolean|Whether to create recommended CloudWatch alarms| |domainEndpointEnvironmentVariableName?|string|Optional Name for the Lambda function environment variable set to the domain endpoint. Default: DOMAIN_ENDPOINT |

Pattern Properties

| Name | Type | Description | |:-------------|:----------------|-----------------| |lambdaFunction|lambda.Function|Returns an instance of lambda.Function created by the construct| |userPool|cognito.UserPool|Returns an instance of cognito.UserPool created by the construct| |userPoolClient|cognito.UserPoolClient|Returns an instance of cognito.UserPoolClient created by the construct| |identityPool|cognito.CfnIdentityPool|Returns an instance of cognito.CfnIdentityPool created by the construct| |elasticsearchDomain|elasticsearch.CfnDomain|Returns an instance of elasticsearch.CfnDomain created by the construct| |elasticsearchDomain|iam.Role|Returns an instance of iam.Role created by the construct for elasticsearch.CfnDomain| |cloudwatchAlarms?|cloudwatch.Alarm[]|Returns a list of cloudwatch.Alarm created by the construct|

Lambda Function

This pattern requires a lambda function that can post data into the Elasticsearch. A sample function is provided here.

Default settings

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

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
  • Set Environment Variables
    • (default) DOMAIN_ENDPOINT
    • AWS_NODEJS_CONNECTION_REUSE_ENABLED (for Node 10.x and higher functions)

Amazon Cognito

  • Set password policy for User Pools
  • Enforce the advanced security mode for User Pools

Amazon Elasticsearch Service

  • Deploy best practices CloudWatch Alarms for the Elasticsearch Domain
  • Secure the Kibana dashboard access with Cognito User Pools
  • Enable server-side encryption for Elasticsearch Domain using AWS managed KMS Key
  • Enable node-to-node encryption for Elasticsearch Domain
  • Configure the cluster for the Amazon ES domain
