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 Node.js CLI Tezos client, powered by eztz.js





eztz-cli is a simple Node.js CLI (command-line interface) that provides similar functionality to the tezos-client, but without the need to run a full node. eztz-cli is being built to match functionality to the official tezos-client CLI, connecting to the Tezos blockchain via the RPC layer of a tezos-node (by default is used).

Being a npm plugin, eztz-cli has the benefit of being extremely portable, lightweight and very developer friendly. eztz-cli is powered by the eztz.js library.


The official tezos-client currently requires a full working node, and can be cumbersome to install, run and maintain for non-techy users. eztz-cli is extremely portable and works on all platforms, with the aim to contain the complete functionality of the tezos-client. No need to run and maintain a node, just install and get working on the Tezos blockchain now.


You will need to ensure you have Node.js installed.

npm i -g eztz-cli

Getting Started

  1. First we need to setup or identity:
eztz newIdentity main
eztz balance main
  1. No tez? No worries, time to create a free account (on the alphanet, free accounts start with 100k tez!)
eztz freeAccount main account1
eztz balance account1
  1. That's better, time to do a transfer!
eztz transfer 50000 account1 main
eztz balance account1
eztz balance main

Well done, you've created an identity, checked your balance several times, created a free account and made a transfer! All on the Tezos blockchain!

Future Development

Our current goals are:

  • Implement optional arguments
  • Work on documentation
  • Change commands to match tezos client (i.e. get balance for X and transfer 50000 to A from V)
  • Further debugging
  • Optimize build and implement tests
  • Improve CLI with something like commander
  • Add better CLI GUI (colours, error messages, tables etc)
  • Develop CLI help and man guides
  • Expand functionality to fully match tezos-client (currently we got about 85% of functionality)
  • Develop baker/endorser daemon services
  • Build multi-platform GUI (light-client)


Please feel free to contribute - I will merge any pull requests as soon as I've gone through the changes.
