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 🙏

Publishing to NPM

Releasing to NPM is handled with changesets and is performed by CI.

On your feature branch, before merging, run yarn dotcom changeset from the root of the project. This will interactively ask you what kind of change this is (major, minor, patch) and allow you to describe the change. Commit the generated changeset file to git and push to your branch.

When you merge the branch, a version release PR will be automatically opened.

IMPORTANT - you now need push a commit to this branch which manually deletes the changeset file(s) under packages/dotcom/.changeset/. These files are supposed to be deleted automatically, but aren't, probably because of our yarn workspaces setup.

When this PR is merged, a new release will be pushed to NPM. The version change will be based on the information in your changeset file. If the version release PR isn't merged straight away, that's fine. Any other PRs with changesets merged in the meantime will cause the release PR to be updated.

Note - currently the Release job in CI will show as failed because it tries to publish the same version twice.

Not all PRs require releasing and therefore don't need a changeset. For example a change to the README.
