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 🙏

A component for rendering Markdown in React Native





A component for rendering Markdown in React Native. Pull requests welcome.

Known issues

  • Due to a bug in underlying layout engine for React Native (facebook/css-layout), this module will put your application in an infinite loop unless you patch the upstream changes from css-layout's' Layout.c and Layout.h files.

Getting started

  1. npm install react-native-markdown --save


All you need is to require the react-native-markdown module and then use the <Markdown/> tag.

var React = require('react-native');
var {
} = React;
var Markdown = require('react-native-markdown');

var mdApp = React.createClass({
  render: function() {
    return (
          Some *really* basic **Markdown**.
          | # | Name   | Age |{'\n'}
          | 1 | John   | 19  |{'\n'}
          | 2 | Sally  | 18  |{'\n'}
          | 3 | Stream | 20  |{'\n'}

AppRegistry.registerComponent('mdApp', () => mdApp);



Default style properties will be applied to the markdown. You will likely want to customize these styles, the following properties can be used to modify the rendered elements:

Note: The text inside the parentheses denotes the element type.

  • autolink (<Text>) - WIP
  • blockQuote (<Text>) - WIP
  • br (<Text>)
  • codeBlock (<View>) - WIP
  • del (<Text>)
  • em (<Text>)
  • heading (<Text>) - Also heading1 through heading6
  • hr (<View>)
  • image (<Image>) - Implemented but size is fixed to 50x50 until auto width is supported by React Native.
  • inlineCode (<Text>)
  • link (<Text>) - WIP
  • list (<View>) - Also listItem (<View>), listItemBullet (<Text>) and listItemNumber (<Text>)
  • mailto (<Text>) - WIP
  • newline (<Text>) - WIP
  • paragraph (<View>)
  • plainText (<Text>) - Use for styling text without any associated styles
  • strong (<Text>)
  • table (<View>)
  • tableHeader (<View>)
  • tableHeaderCell (<Text>)
  • tableRow (<View>)
  • tableRowCell (<View>)
  • tableRowLast (<View>, inherits from tableRow)
  • text (<Text>) - Inherited by all text based elements
  • u (<View>)
  • url (<Text>)
  • view (<View>) - This is the container View that the Markdown is rendered in.
