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 🙏

This AWS Solutions Construct implements an AWS WAF web ACL connected to Amazon CloudFront.

Here is a minimal deployable pattern definition:


import { Construct } from 'constructs';
import { Stack, StackProps } from 'aws-cdk-lib';
import { CloudFrontToS3 } from '@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-cloudfront-s3';
import { WafwebaclToCloudFront } from "@aws-solutions-constructs/aws-wafwebacl-cloudfront";

const cloudfrontToS3 = new CloudFrontToS3(this, 'test-cloudfront-s3', {});

// This construct can only be attached to a configured CloudFront.
new WafwebaclToCloudFront(this, 'test-wafwebacl-cloudfront', {
    existingCloudFrontWebDistribution: cloudfrontToS3.cloudFrontWebDistribution


from aws_solutions_constructs.aws_cloudfront_s3 import CloudFrontToS3
from aws_solutions_constructs.aws_wafwebacl_cloudfront import WafwebaclToCloudFront
from aws_cdk import Stack
from constructs import Construct

cloudfront_to_s3 = CloudFrontToS3(self, 'test_cloudfront_s3')

# This construct can only be attached to a configured CloudFront.
WafwebaclToCloudFront(self, 'test_wafwebacl_cloudfront',


import software.constructs.Construct;


final CloudFrontToS3 cloudfrontToS3 = new CloudFrontToS3(this, "test-cloudfront-s3",
        new CloudFrontToS3Props.Builder()

// This construct can only be attached to a configured CloudFront.
new WafwebaclToCloudFront(this, "test-wafwebacl-cloudfront", new WafwebaclToCloudFrontProps.Builder()

Pattern Construct Props

| Name | Type | Description | |:-------------|:----------------|-----------------| |existingCloudFrontWebDistribution|cloudfront.Distribution|The existing CloudFront instance that will be protected with the WAF web ACL. Note that a WAF web ACL can only be added to a configured CloudFront, so this construct only accepts an existing Distribution and does not accept cloudfrontProps.| |existingWebaclObj?|waf.CfnWebACL|Existing instance of a WAF web ACL, an error will occur if this and props is set.| |webaclProps?|waf.CfnWebACLProps|Optional user-provided props to override the default props for the AWS WAF web ACL. To use a different collection of managed rule sets, specify a new rules property. Use our wrapManagedRuleSet(managedGroupName: string, vendorName: string, priority: number) function from core to create an array entry from each desired managed rule set.|

Pattern Properties

| Name | Type | Description | |:-------------|:----------------|-----------------| |webacl|waf.CfnWebACL|Returns an instance of the waf.CfnWebACL created by the construct.| |cloudFrontWebDistribution|cloudfront.Distribution|Returns an instance of cloudfront.Distribution created by the construct.|

Default settings

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


  • Deploy a WAF web ACL with 7 AWS managed rule groups.

    • AWSManagedRulesBotControlRuleSet
    • AWSManagedRulesKnownBadInputsRuleSet
    • AWSManagedRulesCommonRuleSet
    • AWSManagedRulesAnonymousIpList
    • AWSManagedRulesAmazonIpReputationList
    • AWSManagedRulesAdminProtectionRuleSet
    • AWSManagedRulesSQLiRuleSet

    Note that the default rules can be replaced by specifying the rules property of CfnWebACLProps

  • Send metrics to Amazon CloudWatch

Amazon CloudFront

  • User provided CloudFront object is used as-is
