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 AWS Lambda function and an Amazon SQS queue.




aws-lambda-sqs module

Stability: Stable

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

| Language | Package | |:-------------|-----------------| |Python Logo Python|aws_solutions_constructs.aws_lambda_sqs| |Typescript Logo Typescript|@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-lambda-sqs| |Java Logo Java||

This AWS Solutions Construct implements an AWS Lambda function connected to an Amazon SQS queue.

Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition:


import { Construct } from 'constructs';
import { Stack, StackProps } from 'aws-cdk-lib';
import { LambdaToSqs, LambdaToSqsProps } from "@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-lambda-sqs";
import * as lambda from 'aws-cdk-lib/aws-lambda';

new LambdaToSqs(this, 'LambdaToSqsPattern', {
  lambdaFunctionProps: {
    runtime: lambda.Runtime.NODEJS_14_X,
    handler: 'index.handler',
    code: lambda.Code.fromAsset(`lambda`)


from aws_solutions_constructs.aws_lambda_sqs import LambdaToSqs
from aws_cdk import (
    aws_lambda as _lambda,
from constructs import Construct

    self, 'test-lambda-sqs-stack',


import software.constructs.Construct;


new LambdaToSqs(this, "test-lambda-sqs-stack", new LambdaToSqsProps.Builder()
        .lambdaFunctionProps(new FunctionProps.Builder()

Pattern Construct Props

| Name | Type | Description | |:-------------|:----------------|-----------------| |existingLambdaObj?|lambda.Function|An optional, existing Lambda function to be used instead of the default function. Providing both this and lambdaFunctionProps will cause an error.| |lambdaFunctionProps?|lambda.FunctionProps|Optional user-provided properties to override the default properties for the Lambda function. | |existingQueueObj?|sqs.Queue|An optional, existing SQS queue to be used instead of the default queue. Providing both this and queueProps will cause an error.| |queueProps?|sqs.QueueProps|Optional user-provided properties to override the default properties for the SQS queue.| |enableQueuePurging?|boolean|Whether to grant additional permissions to the Lambda function enabling it to purge the SQS queue. Defaults to false.| |deployDeadLetterQueue?|boolean|Whether to create a secondary queue to be used as a dead letter queue. Defaults to true.| |deadLetterQueueProps?|sqs.QueueProps|Optional user-provided props to override the default props for the dead letter queue. Only used if the deployDeadLetterQueue property is set to true.| |maxReceiveCount?|number|The number of times a message can be unsuccessfully dequeued before being moved to the dead letter queue. Defaults to 15.| |existingVpc?|ec2.IVpc|An optional, existing VPC into which this pattern should be deployed. When deployed in a VPC, the Lambda function will use ENIs in the VPC to access network resources and an Interface Endpoint will be created in the VPC for Amazon SQS. If an existing VPC is provided, the deployVpc property cannot be true. This uses ec2.IVpc to allow clients to supply VPCs that exist outside the stack using the ec2.Vpc.fromLookup() method.| |vpcProps?|ec2.VpcProps|Optional user-provided properties to override the default properties for the new VPC. enableDnsHostnames, enableDnsSupport, natGateways and subnetConfiguration are set by the pattern, so any values for those properties supplied here will be overrriden. If deployVpc is not true then this property will be ignored.| |deployVpc?|boolean|Whether to create a new VPC based on vpcProps into which to deploy this pattern. Setting this to true will deploy the minimal, most private VPC to run the pattern: One isolated subnet in each Availability Zone used by the CDK programenableDnsHostnames and enableDnsSupport will both be set to trueIf this property is true then existingVpc cannot be specified. Defaults to false.| |queueEnvironmentVariableName?|string|Optional Name for the Lambda function environment variable set to the URL of the queue. Default: SQS_QUEUE_URL |

Pattern Properties

| Name | Type | Description | |:-------------|:----------------|-----------------| |lambdaFunction|lambda.Function|Returns an instance of the Lambda function created by the pattern.| |sqsQueue|sqs.Queue|Returns an instance of the SQS queue created by the pattern. | |deadLetterQueue?|sqs.Queue|Returns an instance of the dead letter queue created by the pattern, if one is deployed.| |vpc?|ec2.IVpc|Returns an interface on the VPC used by the pattern (if any). This may be a VPC created by the pattern or the VPC supplied to the pattern constructor.|

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.
  • Allow the function to send messages only to the queue (purging can be enabled using the enableQueuePurge property).
  • Enable X-Ray Tracing
  • Set Environment Variables
    • AWS_NODEJS_CONNECTION_REUSE_ENABLED (for Node 10.x and higher functions)

Amazon SQS Queue

  • Deploy SQS dead-letter queue for the source SQS Queue.
  • Enable server-side encryption for source SQS Queue using AWS Managed KMS Key.
  • Enforce encryption of data in transit
