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 🙏

Develop themes and themable components with Emotion, Styled Components, Material-UI and your custom solution




npm version Storybook

Storybook Addon @ React Theming

Storybook addon for Styled Components, Emotion, Material-UI and any other theming solution. Allows to develop themed components in isolation.

npm i --save-dev @react-theming/storybook-addon



Features :dizzy:

  • Universal - can be used with any styling library
  • Switching between themes from addon panel.
  • Change a color and see how it affects to your components
  • Easily copy-paste paths of nesting theme props into your code
  • Auto changes background
  • Supports dark Storybook theme
  • Keep selected theme on stories updates


specify addon in .storybook/main.js

// .storybook/main.js

module.exports = {
  stories: ['../src/**/*.stories.js'],
  addons: ['@react-theming/storybook-addon'],

or in .storybook/addons.js for older versions of Storybook

import '@react-theming/storybook-addon/register';

Then you'll need to add a decorator with a ThemeProvider of your library. This project is not related to any particular styling solutions, instead, you can use any of theme providers you're using in your project.

import ThemeProvider from 'library-of-your-choice';
import { withThemes } from '@react-theming/storybook-addon';
import { theme } from '../src/theme';

// create decorator
const themingDecorator = withThemes(ThemeProvider, [theme]);

ThemeProvider should accept a theme via theme props. This is usually the case for the most common styling libraries like Styled Components, Emotion, Material-UI.

In case of non standard ThemeProvider you can pass providerFn function in options:

const providerFn = ({ theme, children }) => {
  return <ThemeProvider theme={muTheme}>{children}</ThemeProvider>;

const themingDecorator = withThemes(null, [theme], { providerFn });

Use your output of the selected value

// .storybook/preview.js

import { ThemeProvider } from 'styled-components';
import { addDecorator } from '@storybook/react';
import { withThemes } from '@react-theming/storybook-addon';

import { theme } from '../src/theme';

Example getCustomFieldSnippet

const selectedValue = {
  name: "accent5",
  namespace: ["palette", "colors"],
  type: "color",
  value: "#ac924d"

const getCustomFieldSnippet = selectedValue => {
  const { namespace, name } = selectedValue;
  const path = namespace.join('.');
  const fullPath = `${path}.${name}`;
  const themeProp = `\${({ theme }) => theme.${fullPath}}`;
  return themeProp;

// The snippet Func function takes the SelectedValue parameter and returns a string
addDecorator(withThemes(ThemeProvider, [theme], { getCustomFieldSnippet }));

Example getCustomValueSnippet

By default, the addon outputs colors in HEX format, if you need some kind of add-in, then pass the colorSnippet parameter.

const getCustomValueSnippet = ({value, name, type}) => {
  // Here is your code
  return value

// The colorSnipept function accepts an object consisting of { value : HEX, name: string, type: color}
addDecorator(withThemes(ThemeProvider, [theme], { getCustomValueSnippet }));


This addon has ability to auto change background color when it detect a dark theme. By default it checks if the theme name contains 'dark'.

You can customize this behavior by passing onThemeSwitch function:

export const onThemeSwitch = context => {
  const { theme } = context;
  const background = === 'Dark theme' ? '#2c2f33' : 'white';
  const parameters = {
    backgrounds: {
      default: background,
    // Pass backgrounds: null to disable background switching at all
  return {

const themingDecorator = withThemes(null, [theme], { onThemeSwitch });

This way you can have own checks of what the theme is selected and pass what ever color you need.

!important: The addon change background color on each theme selecting. In some scenarios you might want to disable this behavior e.g. if you already using addon-backgrounds. You can disable background switching by passing backgrounds: null in parameters.

Below the use cases for most popular styling libraries:

Using with Emotion

// .storybook/preview.js

import { ThemeProvider } from '@emotion/react';
import { addDecorator } from '@storybook/react';
import { withThemes } from '@react-theming/storybook-addon';

import { theme } from '../src/theme';

// pass ThemeProvider and array of your themes to decorator
addDecorator(withThemes(ThemeProvider, [theme]));

💅 Using with Styled Components

// .storybook/preview.js

import { ThemeProvider } from 'styled-components';
import { addDecorator } from '@storybook/react';
import { withThemes } from '@react-theming/storybook-addon';

import { theme } from '../src/theme';

// pass ThemeProvider and array of your themes to decorator
addDecorator(withThemes(ThemeProvider, [theme]));

Using with Material-UI

// theme.js
import { red } from '@material-ui/core/colors';

// A custom theme for this app
const theme = {
  palette: {
    primary: {
      main: '#556cd6',
    secondary: {
      main: '#19857b',
    error: {
      main: red.A400,
    background: {
      default: '#fff',

export default theme;
// .storybook/preview.js

import { ThemeProvider } from '@material-ui/core';
import { createMuiTheme } from '@material-ui/core/styles';
import { addDecorator } from '@storybook/react';
import { withThemes } from '@react-theming/storybook-addon';

import theme from '../src/theme';

const providerFn = ({ theme, children }) => {
  const muTheme = createMuiTheme(theme);
  return <ThemeProvider theme={muTheme}>{children}</ThemeProvider>;

// pass ThemeProvider and array of your themes to decorator
addDecorator(withThemes(null, [theme], { providerFn }));
// index.js

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { ThemeProvider } from '@material-ui/core/styles';
import { createMuiTheme } from '@material-ui/core/styles';
import App from './App';
import theme from './theme';

  <ThemeProvider theme={createMuiTheme(theme)}>
    <App />
