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 🙏

Nymph.js - GUID and Unique Code Generators




Nymph GUID / Unique Code Generator

Powerful object data storage and querying.

The GUID and unique code generators are used to generate new GUIDs for Nymph objects and various random unique strings.


npm install --save @nymphjs/guid


There are a few functions for generating different kinds of strings.

import {
} from '@nymphjs/guid';

// This generates a GUID. It will be 24 characters long, and the first four
// characters will be the same during a whole week. (This helps make DB index
// paging more efficient.)
const myGuid = guid();

// This can be used as a table suffix in SQL queries. It will be 20 characters
// long and alphanumeric.
const myTableSuffix = makeTableSuffix();

// This will be a human readable secret code. It will be 10 characters long and
// use the nolookalikesSafe dictionary from nanoid-dictionary.
const mySecretCode = humanSecret();

// This is the nanoid library's main export. It is exported in commonjs format.
const id = nanoid();

// This is the nanoid library's customAlphabet export.
const customId = customAlphabet('abc', 20)();
