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 engine that powers scroll-into-view-if-needed




CircleCI Status npm stat npm version gzip size size module formats: umd, cjs, and es semantic-release


Lower level API that is used by the ponyfill scroll-into-view-if-needed to compute where (if needed) elements should scroll based on options defined in the spec and the scrollMode: "if-needed" draft spec proposal. Use this if you want the smallest possible bundlesize and is ok with implementing the actual scrolling yourself.

Scrolling SVG elements are supported, as well as Shadow DOM elements. The VisualViewport API is also supported, ensuring scrolling works properly on modern devices. Quirksmode is also supported as long as you polyfill document.scrollingElement.


yarn add compute-scroll-into-view

The UMD build is also available on unpkg:

<script src=""></script>

You can find the library on window.computeScrollIntoView.


// es6 import
import computeScrollIntoView from 'compute-scroll-into-view'
// or es5
const computeScrollIntoView = require('compute-scroll-into-view')

const node = document.getElementById('hero')

// same behavior as Element.scrollIntoView({block: "nearest", inline: "nearest"})
// see:
const actions = computeScrollIntoView(node, {
  scrollMode: 'if-needed',
  block: 'nearest',
  inline: 'nearest',

// same behavior as Element.scrollIntoViewIfNeeded(true)
// see:
const actions = computeScrollIntoView(node, {
  scrollMode: 'if-needed',
  block: 'center',
  inline: 'center',

// Then perform the scrolling, use scroll-into-view-if-needed if you don't want to implement this part
actions.forEach(({ el, top, left }) => {
  el.scrollTop = top
  el.scrollLeft = left


computeScrollIntoView(target, options)


Type: Object


Type: 'start' | 'center' | 'end' | 'nearest' Default: 'center'

Control the logical scroll position on the y-axis. The spec states that the block direction is related to the writing-mode, but this is not implemented yet in this library. This means that block: 'start' aligns to the top edge and block: 'end' to the bottom.


Type: 'start' | 'center' | 'end' | 'nearest' Default: 'nearest'

Like block this is affected by the writing-mode. In left-to-right pages inline: 'start' will align to the left edge. In right-to-left it should be flipped. This will be supported in a future release.


Type: 'always' | 'if-needed' Default: 'always'

This is a proposed addition to the spec that you can track here:

This library will be updated to reflect any changes to the spec and will provide a migration path. To be backwards compatible with Element.scrollIntoViewIfNeeded if something is not 100% visible it will count as "needs scrolling". If you need a different visibility ratio your best option would be to implement an Intersection Observer.


Type: Element | Function

By default there is no boundary. All the parent elements of your target is checked until it reaches the viewport (document.scrollingElement) when calculating layout and what to scroll. By passing a boundary you can short-circuit this loop depending on your needs:

  • Prevent the browser window from scrolling.
  • Scroll elements into view in a list, without scrolling container elements.

You can also pass a function to do more dynamic checks to override the scroll scoping:

const actions = computeScrollIntoView(target, {
  boundary: parent => {
    // By default `overflow: hidden` elements are allowed, only `overflow: visible | clip` is skipped as
    // this is required by the CSSOM spec
    if (getComputedStyle(parent)['overflow'] === 'hidden') {
      return false

    return true


Type: Boolean Default: false

By default the spec states that overflow: hidden elements should be scrollable because it has been used to allow programatic scrolling. This behavior can sometimes lead to scrolling issues when you have a node that is a child of an overflow: hidden node.

This package follows the convention adopted by Firefox of setting a boolean option to not scroll all nodes with overflow: hidden set.

TypeScript support

This library ships with library definitions for TypeScript.
