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 🙏

A simple wrapper on top of jQuery.ajax to reduce redundancy

npm install --save abstrax

See package.json for available formats.

Abstrax requires jQuery as a peer dependency.

Abstrax also requires that Object.assign be available in the runtime environment.


Pass in a config object containing a list of requests and any defaults for jQuery.ajax. abstrax will return an object of functions matching the keys of your requests object.

Calling any of the request functions will return a jQuery promise. Data payloads for jQuery.ajax can be passed as an argument to a request function. Arguments for templated request urls can be applied by calling .for on a request function object with a keyed object argument.

Example usage:

var myModel = abstrax({
    requests: {
        getThings: {
            url: "/api/things",
            headers: {
                'Fake-Header': 'bar'
        getUsers: {
            url: "/api/users"
        createUser: {
            url: "/api/users",
            method: "post"
        getUser: {
            url: "/api/users/${userId}",
        updateUser: {
            url: "/api/users/${userId}",
            method: "patch",
    defaults: {
        headers: {
            "Fake-Header": 'foo'

    .then(success, failure);

    .then(success, failure);

    .then(success, failure);

var getCurrentUser = myModel.getUser.for(urlKeys);
    .then(success, failure);

    .then(success, failure);

var updateCurrentUser = myModel.updateUser.for(urlKeys);
    .then(success, failure);
