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 🙏

aws multi-role log viewer


Uses AWS CloudWatch Insights to query multiple log groups across multiple STS roles in parallel, and then combines and sorts them all by timestamp. The default query it uses is fields @message, @timestamp in the last 5 minutes


npm i @exodus/aws-multilog -g


Install pip install qaws, pip install awsume

Then configure your amazon config including mfa_token and source_profile for all roles...

For example in my ~/.aws/config I have

[profile staging]
region = us-east-1
output = json
mfa_serial     = arn:aws:iam::myuserid:mfa/myusername

[profile staging-myrole]
source_profile = staging
role_arn       = arn:aws:iam::accountid:role/rolename

and in ~/.aws/credentials I have:

aws_access_key_id = myid
aws_secret_access_key = mykey

if you have mfa_serial specified then make sure you do awsume staging (or whatever your role is) to ensure your mfa token is cached and working


Create the file ~/.aws/multilog.json to hold your log group configuration:

    "profile": "staging",
    "groups": [
    "color": "blue"
    "profile": "production",
    "groups": [
    "color": "blueBright"


$ aws-multilog
# defaults to 5 minutes, queries all messages

$ aws-multilog --time 1h
# all messages in last hour

$ aws-multilog --filter 'level = "error"'
# only get log level error (assuming your logs are json w/ "level": "error")

$ aws-multilog --time 1h --end 30m
# all messages between 1h to 30min ago

$ aws-multilog --limit 9999
# default is 1000, max is 9999


  • -q - quiet mode
  • -v - verbose mode (show query metadata)
  • --filter - shorthand for adding a insights filter
  • --time - specify custom start time, i.e. 5m or 1h
  • --end - specify end time
  • --json - ndjson outpout
  • --query - specify custom insights query string
  • --limit - default 1000, max 9999
