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 🙏

An app which helps users to setup their Bee node and do actions like cash out cheques




Bee Dashboard

standard-readme compliant js-standard-style FOSSA Status

An app which helps users to setup their Bee node and do actions like cash out cheques, upload and download files or manage your postage stamps.

Warning: This project is in alpha state. There might (and most probably will) be changes in the future to its API and working. Also, no guarantees can be made about its stability, efficiency, and security at this stage.

This project is intended to be used with **Bee version

not recommended and may not work. Stay up to date by joining the official Discord and by keeping an eye on the releases tab.

Table of Contents


Install globally with npm. We require Node.js's version of at least 12.x and npm v6.x (or yarn v2.x).

npm install -g @ethersphere/bee-dashboard


:warning: To successfully connect to the Bee node, you will need to enable CORS. You can do so by setting cors-allowed-origins: ['*'] in the Bee config file and then restart the Bee node. To see where the config file is, consult the official Bee documentation


To start use:


This should open the webpage on http://localhost:8080

You can also define your own port with the PORT environment variable. E.g.

export PORT=3005

Will start the bee-dashboard on http://localhost:3005


To build Docker image and run it, execute the following from inside project directory:

docker build . -t bee-dashboard
docker run --rm -p bee-dashboard

Bee dashboard is now available on http://localhost:8080


git clone [email protected]:ethersphere/bee-dashboard.git

cd  bee-dashboard

npm i

npm start

The Bee Dashboard runs in development mode on http://localhost:3031/

Environmental variables

The CRA supports to specify "environmental variables" during build time which are then hardcoded into the served static files. We support following variables:

  • REACT_APP_BEE_DESKTOP_ENABLED (boolean) that toggles if the Dashboard is in Desktop mode or not.
  • REACT_APP_BEE_DESKTOP_URL (string) defines custom URL where the Desktop API is expected. By default, it is same origin under which the Dashboard is served.
  • REACT_APP_BEE_HOST (string) defines custom Bee API URL to be used as default one. By default, the http://localhost:1633 is used.
  • REACT_APP_DEFAULT_RPC_URL (string) defines the default RPC provider URL. Be aware, that his only configures the default value. The user can override this in Settings, which is then persisted in local store and has priority over the value set in this env. variable. By default is used.

Swarm Desktop development

If you want to develop Bee Dashboard in the Swarm Desktop mode, then spin up swarm-desktop to the point where Desktop is initialized (eq. the splash screen disappear) and:

echo "REACT_APP_BEE_DESKTOP_URL=http://localhost:3054
REACT_APP_BEE_DESKTOP_ENABLED=true" > .env.development.local

npm start
npm run desktop # This will inject the API key to the Dashboard


There are some ways you can make this module better:

  • Consult our open issues and take on one of them
  • Help our tests reach 100% coverage!
  • Join us in our Discord chat in the #develop-on-swarm channel if you have questions or want to give feedback
