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 🙏

Example project for lambda-tdd.




AWS Lambda Example Project

Build Status Test Coverage Dependabot Status Dependencies NPM Downloads Semantic-Release Gardener

Pure Lambda: Lambda + Tests + Serverless

This is an example for AWS Lambda Development showcasing how to use:

A list of all the example handlers with description can be found here. Each handler has tests files associated.

Note: Independent of the Lambda trigger type.

HTTPS Endpoint: Lambda + Tests + Serverless + Api Gateway

This is an example for AWS Lambda Development showcasing how to use:

A list of all the example handlers with description can be found here. Each handler has tests files associated.

Note: Lambda functions defined this way are expected to be used with API Gateway.

Getting Started

Install serverless with

$ npm install -g serverless

Then verify tests with

$ npm test

Deploy Project to AWS

To deploy run

$ sls deploy

Things to try after deploy

Simple Functions

Test a geoip function

$ sls invoke -f geoip

Test div function

$ sls invoke -f div -d '{ "a": 32, "b": 5 }'

Mode detail on the invoke option can be found here.

You can also log into AWS and trigger the function with an event that you manually create.

Https Endpoint

The deploy message will give you a public url to use of the form Experiment with different input, e.g.

$ URL?input=[1,4,2,45,6]
$ URL?input=[1,4,2,45,]

Swagger Documentation

Swagger documentation is automatically synchronized using the API definition, but also manually enriched. For an example on how this is accomplished see test_https.js. The generated swagger file can be found here.

The file also contains a test example that ensures that the swagger documentation is synchronized with the serverless.yml file.

Rate Limit

If you hit the endpoint many times quickly you will trigger the rate limit.

Rollbar Monitoring

Set up your rollbar account and fill the details into the example.yml. Then deploy again and check that information is logged to rollbar as you hit warning / error conditions!

Remove Project from AWS


$ sls remove

Other Considerations


Consider using lambda-monitor for monitoring your lambda function.
