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 🙏

SECIO implementation in JavaScript

This repo contains the JavaScript implementation of secio, an encryption protocol used in libp2p. This is based on this go implementation.

Lead Maintainer

Friedel Ziegelmayer

Table of Contents


npm install libp2p-secio


const secio = require('libp2p-secio')



The current secio tag, usable in multistream.

const encryptedConnection = secio.encrypt(localPeerId, plainTextConnection [, remotePeerId] [, callback])

  • localPeerId: PeerId - A PeerId object containing the Private, Public and Id of our node.
  • plainTextConnection: Connection - The insecure connection to be secured.
  • remotePeerId: PeerId - A PeerId object containing the Public and/or Id of the node we are doing the SECIO handshake with.
  • callback: Function - Optional, Called if an error happens during the initialization.

Returns an encrypted Connection object that is the upgraded plainTextConnection with now having every byte encripted.

Both plainTextConnection and encryptedConnection are at their base, PullStreams.

This module uses pull-streams

We expose a streaming interface based on pull-streams, rather then on the Node.js core streams implementation (aka Node.js streams). pull-streams offers us a better mechanism for error handling and flow control guarantees. If you would like to know more about why we did this, see the discussion at this issue.

You can learn more about pull-streams at:

Converting pull-streams to Node.js Streams

If you are a Node.js streams user, you can convert a pull-stream to a Node.js stream using the module pull-stream-to-stream, giving you an instance of a Node.js stream that is linked to the pull-stream. For example:

const pullToStream = require('pull-stream-to-stream')

const nodeStreamInstance = pullToStream(pullStreamInstance)
// nodeStreamInstance is an instance of a Node.js Stream
