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 🙏

Install the latest go-libp2p binary from IPFS public gateway.

Lead Maintainer

Vasco Santos


npm install go-libp2p-dep --save


Warning: The binary gets put in the go-libp2p folder inside the module folder.

Which go-libp2p version this package downloads?

Can be specified in package.json with a field go-libp2p.version, eg:

"go-libp2p": {
  "version": "v6.0.30"

Version Update

When a new go-libp2p version is released, it is necessary to create binaries for linux, windows and mac os. After this, those binaries should be added to ipfs and the versions.js file updated accordingly.

For generating binaries for all the platforms we have been using gox.

An example flow for version 0.1.0:

  • Install and build go-libp2p-daemon
$ # in your GOPATH (for example inside go/src/
$ git clone
$ cd go-libp2p-daemon
$ git checkout <release tag, e.g. v0.0.1>
$ go get ./...
$ go install ./...
  • Generate the necessary binaries
$ gox -osarch="linux/amd64 darwin/amd64 windows/amd64"
  • Rename each binary to p2pd in a different folder
$ mv p2pd_linux_amd64 p2pd
$ mv p2pd_darwin_amd64 p2pd
$ mv p2pd_windows_amd64.exe p2pd.exe
  • Archive resulting binaries
$ tar -cvzf go-libp2p-0.1.0-linux.tar.gz p2pd
$ tar -cvzf go-libp2p-0.1.0-mac.tar.gz p2pd
$ zip p2pd.exe
  • Add to IPFS (a daemon should be running)
$ ipfs add go-libp2p-0.1.0-linux.tar.gz
$ ipfs add go-libp2p-0.1.0-mac.tar.gz
$ ipfs add
