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 🙏

Endpoint Manager for Restify




Deprecated in favor of the upcoming module that is not restify specific and will have documentation generation capabilities

Build Status npm version


Version 1.0.5 has been released

Development status: active development, beta

The purpose of this library is to help manage your RESTful endpoints for Restify. One of the biggest challenges to creating and maintaining and API service is it's documentation, Restify Endpoints tries to help solve this problem by allowing you to auto-generate documentation based on all your defined code. Instead of writing documentation separately, write it while you code, in your code.



By placing files in a directory with the proper format you can auto-discover endpoints with this library. This means you can write a simple endpoints file that supports multiple middleware, versions, and methods and place it into a directory and the library will discover and include them automatically.


Like middleware, but it goes after your main endpoint handler. This means you cannot modify the response in this function. It is useful or taking action on the request after your primary action has already been done. For example, lets say your main handler sets certain headers or flags on the request object, the afterware can read these values and take futher action after the primary response has already been sent back to the user.

Single or Multiple (Everything), Your Choice

When defining an endpoint you can define a single method, middleware, version, OR you can specifiy multiple and if you are using the autodiscovery feature, all you have to do is attach the endpoint manager to the restify server and you are done. See an example below.


module.exports = {
  name: 'Example',
  description: 'Example Endpoints',
  endpoints: [
      name: 'Example',
      description: 'Default Example Endpoint',
      method: 'GET',
      path: [
      version: '1.0.0',
      middleware: name_of_middleware_function,
      fn: function (req, res, next) {
        res.send({"status": "ok", "message": "Example Default Endpoint"});
        return next();
      name: 'getExample',
      description: 'Get Example Data Endpoint',
      method: 'GET',
      auth: false,
      path: '/example/:id',
      version: [
      middleware: [
      fn: function (req, res, next) {
        return next();


  • Auto-generate Docs - Support more then markdown format as export.
  • Endpoint Middleware Support - better support for additional plugins/middleware that can be used against the endpoints?



npm registry

npm install restify-endpoints --save

git repository

npm install git+

Credits / Thanks

A special thanks to for helping me visualize how to build the project and for the first iteration of the endpoints manager class.
