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 🙏

Chart Knowledge Base




English | 简体中文

A knowledge base stores the wiki for every type of visualization.

Version NPM downloads

Chart Knowledge Base (CKB) is a library offers knowledge base for chart wikis in a JSON format. The JSON is like this:

  line_chart: {
    id: 'line_chart',
    name: 'Line Chart',
    alias: ['Lines'],
    family: ['LineCharts'],
    def: 'A line chart uses lines with segments to show changes in data in a ordinal dimension.',
    purpose: ['Comparison', 'Trend', 'Anomaly'],
    coord: ['Cartesian2D'],
    category: ['Statistic'],
    shape: ['Lines'],
    dataPres: [
      { minQty: 1, maxQty: 1, fieldConditions: ['Time', 'Ordinal'] },
      { minQty: 0, maxQty: 1, fieldConditions: ['Nominal'] },
      { minQty: 1, maxQty: 1, fieldConditions: ['Interval'] },
    channel: ['Position', 'Direction'],
    recRate: 'Recommended',



Consistency for Chart Taxonomy

The contribution of the whole data visualization community makes this library a standard. You don't have to struggle with different names or alias or definition of a same chart type.

The Base for Automatic Chart Recommendation

You can easily build a chart type recommendation system with this knowledge base and your customized rules.


$ npm install @antv/ckb


import { CKBJson } from '@antv/ckb';

// Knowledage base for all charts in English.
const knowledgeBase = CKBJson();

// Knowledage base for completed charts in Chinese.
const zhCompletedKB = CKBJson('zh-CN', true);


// ../../docs/api/ does not exist


We welcome all contributions. Please read General Contribution Guide and Contribution Guide for AVA/CKB first.

You can submit any ideas as pull requests or as GitHub issues. Let's build a better AVA together.
