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 🙏

CLI for repeatable tasks in CALS





Getting started

Make sure you have a recent version of Node.js. E.g. by using

npx @capraconsulting/cals-cli --help

It is recommended to use npx over global install to ensure you always run the latest version. If you install it globally remember to update it before running.

Building locally

Clone this repo.

Use NPM to link this repo as a global package:

npm install
npm run build
npm link

Run the cli from any terminal/folder:


Rebuild using npm run build.


This project uses semantic release to automate releases and follows Git commit guidelines from the Angular project.

Goals of CLI

  • Provide an uniform way of consistently doing repeatable CALS tasks
  • Provide simple guidelines to improve the experience for developers
  • A tool that everybody uses and gets ownership of
  • Automate repeatable CALS tasks as we go

Ideas and future work

  • Automate onboarding of people
    • Granting access to various resources: AWS, GitHub, Confluence, JIRA, Slack, ...
  • Automate offboarding of people
  • Automate generation of new projects/resources
    • Creating GitHub repos, giving permissions etc
    • Slack channels
    • AWS account and structure
    • Checklist for manual processes
  • AWS infrastructure management, e.g. scripts such as
    • cals aws ...

Snyk management

  • [ ] Automatically set up project in Snyk
  • [x] Report of which repos are in Snyk and which is not
  • [ ] Detect active vs disabled projects in Snyk (no way through API now?)
  • [x] Report issues in Snyk grouped by our projects
