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 Cordova plugin for performing an HTTP request over a WiFi network





Circle CI

This is a Cordova plugin for making Angular-like HTTP requests over WiFi.

Why is this a thing?

Android's Marshmallow operating system introduced a non-forward compatible change that causes network traffic to sometimes use cellular data instead of WiFi when connected to a WiFi access point that cannot reach Google's servers. This is problematic for applications that need to talk to local devices on that access point (i.e., anything in the or ranges). This plugin makes HTTP requests that are guaranteed to use WiFi.

Why not use bindProcessToNetwork?

As of Cordova 5.3.3, Cordova plugins do not support the runtime permission model required when targeting API level 23 which introduced bindProcessToNetwork.


    method: 'GET', // or POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH, OPTIONS
    url: '',
    headers: { // optional property
        'X-Foo': 'bar'
    data: { // optional, can also be a string, objects are serialized to JSON
        foo: 'bar'
}, function callback(err, response) {
    // err is null if no error occurred
    // response has status, data, and headers
