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 🙏

A spectral ruleset to enforce the AWS API Gateway Important Notes




Spectral AWS API Gateway Ruleset

When working with AWS API Gateway, it uses a number of features that are a step away from the OpenAPI standard.

Usefully, the features are documented here AWS API Gateway Important Notes, but it's very easy for API developers to forget, or miss them.


Spectral is an Open Source API Linter.

Spectral is an open source JSON/YAML linter, which allows you to create style guides for your structured data; things like OpenAPI/AsyncAPI/RAML descriptions, Kubernetes config, GitHub Actions, you name it, Spectral can help you lint it. Go beyond making sure they are “Technically Correct”, make sure they are useful.

Try it out:

If you've got npx installed, then you can run this ruleset with a single command, replacing $your_api.yml - with your API definition:

npx spectral lint -r $your_api.yaml


To use this ruleset, simply extend your .spectral.yml ruleset by adding a reference to this ruleset, eg:

  - spectral:oas
  - spectral-aws-apigateway-ruleset

This pulls the definition directly from npm, do you don't have to even install it!

NPM package


See: Spectral Instructions for npm for more details.


The severity of each of these rules has been tweaked to follow my own usage. If you think the severity needs changing, or would prefer a more descriptive error message, please submit a PR.

For instructions on how to do so, refer to Custom Rulesets on the Spectral site.
