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 🙏

Requirements

  • AWS X-Ray SDK Core (aws-xray-sdk-core)
  • Restify 4.3.0 or greater

AWS X-Ray and Restify

The AWS X-Ray Restify package automatically records information for incoming and outgoing requests and responses, via the 'enable' function in this package. To configure sampling, dynamic naming, and more see the set up section.

The AWS X-Ray SDK Core has two modes - manual and automatic. Automatic mode uses the cls-hooked package and automatically tracks the current segment and subsegment. This is the default mode. Manual mode requires that you pass around the segment reference.

In automatic mode, you can get the current segment or subsegment at any time:

var segment = AWSXRay.getSegment();

In manual mode, you can get the base segment off of the request object:

var segment = req.segment;

//If the restify context plugin is being used, it is placed under 'XRaySegment'
var segment = req.get('XRaySegment');

Middleware usage

The X-Ray SDK provides a single Restify middleware: AWSXRayRestify.enable(<server>, <defaultName>). This must be added as the last middleware before defining all routes you'd like to have traced, otherwise issues with the cls-hooked context may occur. Error capturing will be done automatically.

Automatic mode examples

For more automatic mode examples, see the example code.

var AWSXRayRestify = require('aws-xray-sdk-restify');
var restify = require('restify');
var server = restify.createServer();

//...

AWSXRayRestify.enable(server, 'defaultName');

server.get('/', function (req, res) {
    var segment = AWSXRay.getSegment();

    //...

    res.send('hello');
});

//Error capturing is attached to the server's uncaughtException and after events (for both handled and unhandled errors)

Manual mode examples

For more manual mode examples, see manual mode examples. The X-Ray SDK can be used identically inside Restify routes. Note that you don't have to manually start or close the segments since that is handled by the X-Ray middleware.

var AWSXRayRestify = require('aws-xray-sdk-restify');
var restify = require('restify');
var server = restify.createServer();

//...

AWSXRayRestify.enable(server, 'defaultName');          //Required at the start of your routes

server.get('/', function (req, res) {
var segment = req.segment;

//...

res.send('hello');
});

//Error capturing is attached to the server's uncaughtException and after events (for both handled and unhandled errors)
