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 🙏

Vanilla target for @use-gesture





npm (tag) npm bundle size NPM Discord Shield

@use-gesture is a library that lets you bind richer mouse and touch events to any component or view. With the data you receive, it becomes trivial to set up gestures, and often takes no more than a few lines of code.

You can use it stand-alone, but to make the most of it you should combine it with an animation library like react-spring, though you can most certainly use any other.



yarn add @use-gesture/react

npm install @use-gesture/react

Vanilla javascript

yarn add @use-gesture/vanilla

npm install @use-gesture/vanilla

Simple example

import { useSpring, animated } from '@react-spring/web'
import { useDrag } from '@use-gesture/react'

function Example() {
  const [{ x, y }, api] = useSpring(() => ({ x: 0, y: 0 }))

  // Set the drag hook and define component movement based on gesture data.
  const bind = useDrag(({ down, movement: [mx, my] }) => {
    api.start({ x: down ? mx : 0, y: down ? my : 0 })

  // Bind it to a component.
  return <animated.div {...bind()} style={{ x, y, touchAction: 'none' }} />
<!-- index.html -->
<div id="drag" />
// script.js
const el = document.getElementById('drag')
const gesture = new DragGesture(el, ({ active, movement: [mx, my] }) => {
    targets: el,
    translateX: active ? mx : 0,
    translateY: active ? my : 0,
    duration: active ? 0 : 1000

// when you want to remove the listener

The example above makes a div draggable so that it follows your mouse on drag, and returns to its initial position on release.

Make sure you always set touchAction on a draggable element to prevent glitches with the browser native scrolling on touch devices.

Available hooks

@use-gesture/react exports several hooks that can handle different gestures:

| Hook | Description | | ------------ | ------------------------------------------ | | useDrag | Handles the drag gesture | | useMove | Handles mouse move events | | useHover | Handles mouse enter and mouse leave events | | useScroll | Handles scroll events | | useWheel | Handles wheel events | | usePinch | Handles the pinch gesture | | useGesture | Handles multiple gestures in one hook |
