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 🙏

Thrift model for auditing updates




Thrift model for auditing updates

How to use


in build.sbt

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
    "" %% "auditing-thrift-model" % "0.3.0"

somewhere in your code

import{App, Notification}

    app = App.YourAppHere,
    operation = "EatFruit",
    userEmail = "[email protected]",
    date = new DateTime().toString(),
    resourceId = Some("apple"),
    message = Some("{json}")


You'll probably want to use thrift-serializer to handle the messages.

Sending messages

var Notification = require('auditing-thrift-model').Notification;
var App = require('auditing-thrift-model').App;

var message = new Notification({
    app = App.YourAppHere,
    operation = "EatFruit",
    userEmail = "[email protected]",
    date = (new Date()).toISOString(),
    resourceId = "apple",
    message = JSON.stringify({json})

serializer.write(message, serializer.Compression.Gzip, function (err, bytes) {
    // use the buffer somehow

Receiving notifications

var serializer = require('thrift-serialize');
var Notification = require('auditing-thrift-model').Notification;, data, function (err, message) {
    // You can have the full name of the source app calling



  • Install thrift using brew install thrift

Add an application

The list of allowed applications is kept as an enum, add new ones in App.


The model is used both by Scala applications and node.js lambda.

  • sbt release to publish a new version on Sonatype
  • npm run compile to compile the model for node.js
  • update the version of package.json it should match the one you just released on Sonatype
  • npm publish ./ to publish the new version on npm
