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 🙏

libp2p-daemon client JavaScript implementation

A Javascript client to interact with a standalone deployment of a libp2p host, running in its own OS process. Essentially, this client allows to communicate with other peers, interact with the DHT, participate in pubsub, etc. no matter the language they are implemented with.

The specs for the daemon are currently housed in the go implementation. You can read them at libp2p/go-libp2p-daemon


npm install libp2p-daemon-client


Run a daemon process

There are currently two implementations of the libp2p-daemon:

Interact with the daemon process using the client

const Client = require('libp2p-daemon-client')

const defaultSock = '/tmp/p2pd.sock'
const client = new Client(defaultSock)

// connect to a daemon
await client.attach()

// interact with the daemon
let identify
try {
  identify = await client.identify()
} catch (err) {
  // ...

// close the socket
await client.close()
