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 🙏

Useful functions for writing serverless functions around Cloudflare's Pub/Sub service (





A set of useful helper methods for writing functions to handle Cloudflare Pub/Sub messages. This includes:

  • A isValidBrokerRequest helper for authenticating incoming on-publish webhooks
  • A PubSubMessage type with the fields sent from the Broker to your Worker for use with TypeScript-based Workers and/or for type-aware editors.


Use npm to install:

npm install @cloudflare/pubsub


The following example shows how to use isValidBrokerRequest in a Worker to validate incoming on-publish webhooks from a Pub/Sub broker.

You can use wrangler to bundle your code for deployment to Cloudflare Workers.

import { isValidBrokerRequest, PubSubMessage } from "@cloudflare/pubsub"

async function pubsub(
    messages: Array<PubSubMessage>,
    env: any,
    ctx: ExecutionContext
): Promise<Array<PubSubMessage>> {

    // Messages may be batched at higher throughputs, so we should loop over
    // the incoming messages and process them as needed.
    let messagesToKeep: Array<PubSubMessage>
    for (let msg of messages) {
        // Drop debug messages sent by our clients to reduce the load on our
        // subscribers.
        if (!msg.topic.startsWith("debug") {

    return messagesToKeep;

const worker = {
    async fetch(req: Request, env: any, ctx: ExecutionContext) {
        // Critical: you must validate the incoming request is from your Broker
        // In the future, Workers will be able to do this on your behalf for Workers
        // in the same account as your Pub/Sub Broker.
        if (await isValidBrokerRequest(req)) {
            // Parse the PubSub message
            let incomingMessages: Array<PubSubMessage> = await req.json();

            // Pass the messages to our pubsub handler, and capture the returned
            // message.
            let outgoingMessages = await pubsub(incomingMessages, env, ctx);

            // Re-serialize the messages and return a HTTP 200.
            // The Content-Type is optional, but must either by
            // "application/octet-stream" or left empty.
            return new Response(JSON.stringify(outgoingMessages), { status: 200 });

        return new Response("not a valid Broker request", { status: 403 });

export default worker;

You can use wranger publish to publish this directly: the latest wrangler supports TypeScript natively.
