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.

About

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 🙏

Nymph REST Server

Powerful object data storage and querying.

The REST server lets you configure an endpoint for the Nymph client to query and push data to. The server provides this endpoint as an Express middleware, which can be used in a new or existing Express (or compatible) server.

Installation

npm install --save @nymphjs/server

Usage

You need to install Express, Nymph, and a Nymph driver, then you can use the REST server with an optional path. For this example, I'll use the SQLite3 driver with an in-memory database.

import express from 'express';
import { Nymph } from '@nymphjs/nymph';
import SQLite3Driver from '@nymphjs/driver-sqlite3';
import createServer from '@nymphjs/server';

// Import all the entities you will be using on the server.
import MyEntityClass from './entities/MyEntity';

// Configure Nymph.
const nymph = new Nymph(
  {},
  new SQLite3Driver({
    filename: ':memory:',
  }),
);
const MyEntity = nymph.addEntityClass(MyEntityClass);

// Create your Express app.
const app = express();

// Create and use the REST server (with an optional path).
app.use('/rest', createServer(nymph));

// Do anything else you need to do...

// Start your server.
app.listen(80);

You will need to import any entities you use on the server, so they are available to Nymph.

Now you can configure your client, using your server's address (and the optional path, if set).

import { Nymph } from '@nymphjs/client';

import MyEntityClass from './entities/MyEntityClient';

const nymph = new Nymph({
  // You should configure your Express server to
  // use HTTPS, but you don't have to.
  restUrl: 'https://mydomain.tld/rest',
});
const MyEntity = nymph.addEntityClass(MyEntityClass);

The REST server will authenticate for you using the Tilmeld auth cookie and XSRF token, but if you need to, you can authenticate in some other way (like OAuth2), and place the user in response.locals.user.

import express from 'express';
import { Nymph } from '@nymphjs/nymph';
import SQLite3Driver from '@nymphjs/driver-sqlite3';
import { Tilmeld } from '@nymphjs/tilmeld';
import createServer from '@nymphjs/server';
import setup from '@nymphjs/tilmeld-setup';

// Import all the entities you will be using on the server.
import MyEntityClass from './entities/MyEntity';

// Consfigure Tilmeld.
const tilmeld = new Tilmeld({
  appName: 'My Awesome App',
  appUrl: 'https://mydomain.tld',
  setupPath: '/user',
});

// Configure Nymph.
const nymph = new Nymph(
  {},
  new SQLite3Driver({
    filename: ':memory:',
  }),
  tilmeld,
);
const MyEntity = nymph.addEntityClass(MyEntityClass);

// Create your Express app.
const app = express();

// Authenticate the user manually.
app.use('/rest', async (request, response, next) => {
  const { User } = tilmeld;

  try {
    // Somehow authenticate the user...
    const user = await User.factoryUsername(username);

    if (user.guid != null && user.enabled) {
      response.locals.user = user;
    }

    next();
  } catch (e: any) {
    response.status(500);
    response.send('Internal server error.');
  }
});

// Create and use the REST server (with an optional path).
app.use('/rest', createServer(nymph));

// Create Tilmeld setup app.
app.user(
  '/user',
  setup(
    {
      restUrl: 'https://mydomain.tld/rest',
    },
    nymph,
  ),
);

// Do anything else you need to do...

// Start your server.
app.listen(80);
