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 🙏

Organize, configure and deploy CloudFormation stacks. Manage AWS organization.





GitHub GitHub Workflow Status npm node-current Gitter chat

Takomo makes it easy to organize, parameterize and deploy your CloudFormation stacks across multiple regions and accounts. In addition to stacks, you can also manage accounts, organizational units and service control policies that belong to your AWS organization.

Quick Start

Let's see how to create a simple CloudFormation stack using Takomo.


Install Takomo globally:

npm i -g takomo

Verify installation:

tkm --version

AWS Credentials

You need to have valid AWS credentials configured. Create a profile named takomo-example in your ~/.aws/credentials file:


Stack Configuration

Our stack contains a VPC whose CIDR range can be parameterized. First, we need to create a stacks directory that will host all stack configurations. Create the directory and add there a file named vpc.yml with the following contents:

regions: eu-west-1

Stack Template

Next, we need to provide a CloudFormation template for our stack. Create templates directory next to the stacks directory, and add there a file named vpc.yml with the following contents:

Description: My VPC
    Type: String
    Description: VPC CIDR block
    Type: AWS::EC2::VPC
      CidrBlock: !Ref CidrBlock

Stack Deployment

Alright, we are ready to deploy our stack. Change to the project root directory and run:

tkm stacks deploy --profile takomo-example

You will be prompted if you want to continue the deployment. You also need to review and approve the changes. If you answer yes to both questions, then the deploy will proceed, and given your AWS credentials had all the needed IAM permissions, it should also succeed.

Clean Up

You can delete the stack with command:

tkm stacks undeploy --profile takomo-example
