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 🙏

The apicalypse query language client for nodejs




Node Apicalypse Client

npm version npm downloads

A simple client for creating Apicalypse queries.


Using npm

$ npm install --save @summerkiflain/apicalypse


Raw Apicalypse

import apicalypse from '@summerkiflain/apicalypse';

const rawQueryString = 'fields a,b,c;limit 50;offset 0;';

// async/await
try {
    const response = await apicalypse(rawQueryString)

    // This is an axios response:
} catch (err) {

// Promises
    .then(response => {
    .catch(err => {

Apicalypse Query Builder

const response = await apicalypse({
    // Optional: By default, the apicalypse query is put in the request body.
    // Use 'url' to put the query in the request URL.
    queryMethod: 'body'
    .fields(['name', 'movies', 'age']) // fetches only the name, movies, and age fields
    .fields('name,movies,age') // same as above

    .limit(50) // limit to 50 results
    .offset(10) // offset results by 10

    .sort('name') // default sort direction is 'asc' (ascending)
    .sort('name', 'desc') // sorts by name, descending
    .search('Arnold') // search for a specific name (search implementations can vary)
    .where('age > 50 & movies != n') // filter the results
    .where(['age > 50', 'movies != n']) // same as above

    .request(''); // execute the query and return a response object


Apicalypse in the URL instead of request body

By default, the apicalypse query is put in the request body. If your server doesn't support GET bodies, you can put the request in the URL instead.

const response = await apicalypse(rawQueryString, {
    queryMethod: 'url'


Base Url, Timeouts, Custom headers, Authentication

The configuration object passed to the apicalypse client extends the default axios settings. You can check out more here.

Advanced example

const requestOptions = {
    queryMethod: 'url',
    method: 'post', // The default is `get`
    baseURL: '',
    headers: {
        'Accept': 'application/json'
    responseType: 'json',
    timeout: 1000, // 1 second timeout
    auth: { // Basic auth
        username: 'janedoe',
        password: 's00pers3cret'

const response = await apicalypse(requestOptions)
    .query('age > 50 & movies != n')
    // After setting the baseURL in the requestOptions,
    // you can just use an endpoint in the request


Request all

// Request all pages until results are depleted
const data = await apicalypse()
    .requestAll('', {
        concurrency: 2, // number of threads requesting in parallel
        delay: 100 // delay between each request (when only one thread)
// Note that `data` will be the combined data and not an axios response object.


// Merge queries together into a single request
const now =;
const response = await apicalypse(requestOptions)
            .query('games', 'latest-games')
            .where(`created_at < ${now}`)
            .sort('created_at desc'),
            .query('games', 'coming-soon')
            .where(`created_at > ${now}`)
            .sort('created_at asc')
