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 🙏

Usage

Adjust threadpool size and control concurrency

Please see the crypto-async module for advice on adjusting threadpool size and controlling concurrency.

Encoding Parity Shards

var ReedSolomon = require('@ronomon/reed-solomon');

// Specify the number of data shards (<= ReedSolomon.MAX_K):
var k = 6;

// Specify the number of parity shards (<= ReedSolomon.MAX_M):
var m = 3; // Protect against the loss of any 3 data or parity shards.

// Create an encoding context (can be cached and re-used concurrently):
var context = ReedSolomon.create(k, m);

// Specify the size of each shard in bytes (must be a multiple of 8 bytes):
var shardSize = 65536;

// Allocate the data buffer containing all data shards:
var buffer = Buffer.alloc(shardSize * k);

// Specify the offset into the data buffer at which data shards begin:
// This allows you to include a header.
var bufferOffset = 0;

// Specify the size after this offset of all data shards:
// This allows you to include a footer.
var bufferSize = shardSize * k;

// Allocate the parity buffer containing all parity shards:
var parity = Buffer.alloc(shardSize * m);

// Specify the offset into the parity buffer at which parity shards begin:
// This allows you to include a header.
var parityOffset = 0;

Encoding Corrupted Shards

// Corrupt first data shard:
buffer[bufferOffset + (shardSize * 0)] = 255;

// Corrupt first parity shard:
parity[parityOffset + (shardSize * 0)] = 255;

// We still have enough parity to corrupt one more shard.

// Specify the targets, missing in buffer or parity, which should be encoded:
var targets = 0;
targets |= (1 << 0); // Data shard at index 0 needs to be encoded.
targets |= (1 << k); // Parity shard at index 6 (k + 0) needs to be encoded.

// Specify the sources, present in buffer or parity:
// We need at least k sources.
// For this example, we assume that a shard is a source if it is not a target.
// An optimization is available here:
// If a shard is not a source or target, it might not be encoded.
// The shard may be encoded if needed to encode other shards, but otherwise not.
var sources = 0;
for (var i = 0; i < k + m; i++) {
  if (targets & (1 << i)) continue;
  sources |= (1 << i);
}

// Encode the corrupted data and parity shards:
ReedSolomon.encode(
  context,
  sources,
  targets,
  buffer,
  bufferOffset,
  bufferSize,
  parity,
  parityOffset,
  paritySize,
  function(error) {
    if (error) throw error;
    // Data shard at index 0 has been repaired.
    // Parity shard at index 6 has been repaired.
  }
);
