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 🙏

Abstracts your routes behind a type-safe object.




License TypeScript Tests workflow


This library abstracts your routes away behind type safe object. This way it will allow you to easily refactor routes, prevent typos, prohibit the use of some routes, and use dynamic routes.

TypeScript version must be >=4.0.0


$ npm install --save @lagunovsky/typesafe-routes


To get a type-safe route object, use the schema function

const routes = schema({
  override: [ '', {
    deep: [ 'override', {} ]
  } ],
  exception: [ null, {
    allowed: {},
  } ],
  dynamic: (id: string) => [ id, {
    edit: {},
    v: (version: string) => [ version, {} ],
  } ],
  deep: {
    deep: {},

| Call | Result | |--------------------------------------|------------------------| | routes.override.get() | '/' | | routes.override.deep.get() | '/override' | | routes.exception.get() | error | | routes.exception.allowed.get() | '/exception/allowed' | | routes.dynamic.get() | '/dynamic' | | routes.dynamic(':id').get() | '/dynamic/:id' | | routes.dynamic(1).edit.get() | '/dynamic/1/edit' | | routes.dynamic(1).v('1.0.0').get() | '/dynamic/1/v/1.0.0' | | routes.deep.get() | '/deep' | | routes.deep.deep.get() | '/deep/deep' | | routes.deep.get('?token=magic') | '/deep?token=magic' |



schema(description: Description, options?: Options)

Creates a type-safe route object


type Description = BaseDescription | DynamicDescription | OverrideDescription | ExceptionDescription


type BaseDescription = { [key: string]: Description }

When using this type of description, routes are compiled from the path of the object.


type DynamicDescription = (...args: any[]) => OverrideDescription | ExceptionDescription

When you want to create parameter-dependent routes.


type OverrideDescription = [ string, BaseDescription | DynamicDescription ]

The first element of the array is used to overwrite its key.


type ExceptionDescription = [ null, BaseDescription | DynamicDescription ]

It is used when it is necessary to prohibit the use of a certain route.


type Options = { initialPath?: string }

Using the options.initialPath, you can specify a string that will be added to the beginning of each generated link.

// Example
const options: Options = { initialPath: '/sub-app' }
const routes = schema({ page: {} }, options)
const route = // '/sub-app/page'


get(string | ((...args: any[]) => string))

Allows to get the path of the route.

// Example
const routes = schema({ page: {} })
const route ='?token=magic')  // '/page?token=magic'


const path: symbol

The key by which you can get (or change) the route path.

// Example
const routes = schema({ page: {} })
const route =[path]  // '/page'
