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 client-friendly run queue





Downloads Size

This package provides a RunQueue implementation for scheduling and managing async or time-consuming functions such that client-side interactivity disruptions are minimized.

Usage Examples

Try it Out – CodeSandbox

import { CANCELED, DEFAULT_PRIORITY, RunQueue } from 'client-run-queue';

const main = async () => {
  const q = new RunQueue('my-queue');

  const doSomeWork = async () => {
    // …do some work – just sleeping for some random time to simulate work here
    await new Promise((resolve) => setTimeout(resolve, Math.random() * 1000));

    return Math.random();

  // Scheduling an entry

  const entry = q.schedule(DEFAULT_PRIORITY, 'my-function', doSomeWork);

  // Checking its various statuses

  console.log('canceled', entry.wasCanceled());
  console.log('completed', entry.wasCompleted());
  console.log('started', entry.wasStarted());

  // Waiting for it to complete

  const result = await entry.promise;
  if (result.ok) {
    console.log('success', result.details);
  } else if (result.details === CANCELED) {
  } else {
    console.log('failure', result.details);

  // Scheduling more entries using different priorities and options

  q.schedule(2, 'my-function', doSomeWork, { delayMSec: 1000 });
  q.schedule(0, 'my-function', doSomeWork, { neverCancel: true });
  q.schedule(1, 'my-function', doSomeWork);

  // Checking the queue length

  console.log('queue length', q.getQueueLength());

  // Canceling everything



With RunQueue, one can specify:

  • max parallelism
  • max work units and/or continuous work duration per loop iteration
  • priority and cancellable per entry (runnable function)

You may then:

  • check the status of entries
  • request cancellation of specific or all entries
  • wait for the promised values of entries

In addition to configuring individual RunQueues in the ways mentioned above, you may also specify:

  • a runAfterInteractions function to customize the coordinated scheduling mechanism for your environment (ex. React Native uses InteractionManager.runAfterInteractions). See setRunAfterInteractions. By default, runAfterInteractions uses a 0ms timeout.
  • Stats tracking functions for debugging and analyzing usage. See setStatsHandler.

React Native

As noted above, for React Native, it's recommended to use InteractionManager for runAfterInteractions. To do that, run code like the following, early in your programs execution:

setRunAfterInteractions((_id, func) => {
  const handle = InteractionManager.runAfterInteractions(func);

  return handle.cancel;
