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 light github api wrapper, optimised for newer browsers




GitHub Lite (Work In Progress, far from complete)

npm version Build Status


An attempt at being a light GitHub API wrapper for browsers.

  • Returns native Response Objects
  • Import only the API Modules you need
  • Super tiny JS if compiled for ES6 ready browsers

Depending on how you build this project the resulting bundled js may be just as large as other libraries. Over time as the native browser support for ES2015 and Fetch increases, the filesize will shrink when we don't need to transplile or shim features used.


Basic Example

import GitHubLite from 'github-lite'

const client = GitHubLite()
client.PullRequests.list('github', 'hubot')
  .then(res => res.json())
  .then(res => console.log('First page of pull requests', res))

Auth Example

import GitHubLite from 'github-lite'

// User/Pass Auth 
const client = GitHubLite({ username: 'jamsinclair', password: 'foobar' })
client.PullRequests.list('owner', 'privateRepo').then(/* Do Something */)

// Or use token
const client = GitHubLite({ token: 'my-github-token' })
client.PullRequests.list('owner', 'privateRepo').then(/* Do Something */)

Import only the API modules you need

import PullRequests from 'github-lite/dist/pulls'

// Use the module by itself
const pullsClient = new PullRequests({ token: 'my-github-token' })
pullsClient.list('owner', 'privateRepo').then(/* Do Something */)

// Or construct a client wrapper with the modules you need
import Client from 'github-lite/dist/client'
import PullRequests from 'github-lite/dist/pulls'
import Repositories from 'github-lite/dist/repos'

const client = new Client({ token: 'my-github-token' }, { PullRequests, Repositories })
client.PullRequests.list('owner', 'privateRepo').then(/* Do Something */)
client.Repositories.listByUser('owner').then(/* Do Something */)
