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 🙏

Lead Maintainer

David Dias

Table of Contents


Using npm

> npm install --save multihashes # node the name of the module is multihashes

Once the install is complete, you can require it as a normal dependency

const multihashes = require('multihashes')

You can require it and use with your favourite bundler to bundle this package in a browser compatible code.

Using a <script> tag

Loading this module through a script tag will make the Multihashes obj available in the global namespace.

<script src=""></script>
<!-- OR -->
<script src=""></script>


You will need to use Node.js Buffer API compatible, if you are running inside the browser, you can access it by multihash.Buffer or you can install Feross's Buffer.


> var multihash = require('multihashes')
> var buf = new Buffer('0beec7b5ea3f0fdbc95d0dd47f3c5bc275da8a33', 'hex')

> var encoded = multihash.encode(buf, 'sha1')
> console.log(encoded)
<Buffer 11 14 0b ee c7 b5 ea 3f 0f db c9 5d 0d d4 7f 3c 5b c2 75 da 8a 33>

> multihash.decode(encoded)
{ code: 17,
  name: 'sha1',
  length: 20,
  digest: <Buffer 0b ee c7 b5 ea 3f 0f db c9 5d 0d d4 7f 3c 5b c2 75 da 8a 33> }
