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 Cloud Development Kit (CDK) Datadog Integration

This construct makes it easy to integrate your AWS account with Datadog. It creates nested stacks based on the official Datadog Cloudformation templates using Amazon Cloud Development Kit (CDK).

Basic Usage

  1. Install the package

    npm i --save cdk-datadog-integration

    Or via pypi, NuGet, or GitHub Packages.

  2. Import the stack and pass the required parameters.

    import * as cdk from "@aws-cdk/core";
    import * as secrets from "@aws-cdk/aws-secretsmanager";
    import { DatadogIntegrationStack } from "cdk-datadog-integration";
    const app = new cdk.App();
    new DatadogIntegrationStack(app, "DatadogIntegration", {
      // Generate an ID here:
      externalId: "",
      // Create or lookup a `Secret` that contains your Datadog API Key
      // Get your API key here:
      apiKey: secrets.Secret.fromSecretArn(
        "arn:aws:secretsmanager:<your region>:<your account>:secret:<your secret name>"


Use DatadogIntegrationConfig to set additional configuration parameters. Check out docs for more details on what's available.

Additionally, a CDK Construct is exposed, should you want to add additional customizations vs. using the out-of-the-box Stack.

CDK Version Compatibility

This package is expected to work with all recent versions of CDK v1. It has been tested with 1.55.0 so almost certainly works will all newer versions, and probably works with some older versions too, but is untested.

How it Works

This module uses the CfnStack CDK Construct to import the three CloudFormation stacks referenced by the main Datadog CloudFormation template. By referencing the Datadog-provided templates, you can be confident that the integration works exactly as Datadog intends.


This package is created and maintained by Ben Limmer, a freelance architect and consultant. I love helping businesses of all sizes solve their hardest technology problems. Let's connect if I can be of help!
