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 🙏

Babel plugin for transforming SCSS imports to static variable declarations with transpiled CSS string





Babel transform plugin for replacing *.scss imports with static variable declaration as css string.


import sideEffectStyles from './styles.sass';
// vvv
const sideEffectStyles = '.foo { color: red; }';

Quick start

Install the plugin first:

# yarn
yarn add --dev @researchgate/babel-plugin-transform-scss-import-to-string

# npm
npm install --save-dev @researchgate/babel-plugin-transform-scss-import-to-string

Add it to your babel configuration:

  "plugins": ["@researchgate/babel-plugin-transform-scss-import-to-string"]

Or with custom node-sass options:

  "plugins": [
      { "precision": 3 }

Import *.scss files:

// foo.scss
$bar: 42px;
.foo {
  font-size: $bar;
// foo.js
import foo from './foo.scss';
console.log(foo); // -> .foo { font-size: 42px; }


  • node-sass, which you should install explicitly
  • babel-core, which you should already have with babel configured


  • This module shouldn't be used with webpack and sass-loader since babel transform would take first place in build process.
  • Every import transpiled with node-sass as an independent file, so you have to explicitly import dependencies if you used to have common context before.
