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 🙏

TypeScript + Express + Mongoose + MongoDB




😎 Introduction

The TypeScript Express Mongoose Starter is a comprehensive boilerplate for building robust and scalable web applications using the TypeScript programming language, Express.js framework, and Mongoose ORM for MongoDB. It provides a solid foundation and a set of best practices to kickstart your TypeScript-based Express projects with ease.


  • TypeScript: Enjoy the benefits of static typing, enhanced code maintainability, and better developer tooling with TypeScript.
  • Express.js: Build powerful and flexible web APIs using the popular Express.js framework.
  • Mongoose: Utilize the elegant MongoDB object modeling library Mongoose for seamless integration with MongoDB databases.
  • User Authentication: Includes a pre-configured user authentication system with password hashing using bcrypt and JWT-based authentication.
  • API Documentation: Generate API documentation effortlessly with Swagger and Swagger UI integration.
  • Error Handling: Implement centralized error handling and consistent error responses across your application.
  • Environment Configuration: Manage your application's configuration using environment variables with the help of the dotenv library.
  • Linting and Formatting: Maintain clean and consistent code with ESLint and Prettier pre-configured.
  • Testing with Jest: Write unit tests and run them using the Jest testing framework.
  • Docker Integration: Easily containerize your application using Docker for simplified deployment and scalability.
  • Nginx Reverse Proxy: Set up Nginx as a reverse proxy to enhance performance, security, and load balancing capabilities.
  • Process Management: Utilize PM2 or Nodemon for process management and automatic application restarts during development and production.
  • SWC Compiler: Utilize the SWC compiler for faster TypeScript compilation and improved performance.

⚒ How to Install

To create a new project using this starter template, you can use npx to quickly scaffold the project. if you don't write the project name yourself, default name typescript-express-mongoose-starter will be used.

$ npx typescript-express-mongoose-starter <project-name>

Alternatively, you can clone the repository and install the dependencies:

$ git clone
$ cd typescript-express-mongoose-starter
$ npm install


Before starting the project, make sure to set up your database credentials in the .env.development.local file. This file is used for local development and should not be committed to version control. Here's an example of how the .env.development.local file should be structured:
