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 microservice that parses rss feeds and makes it available as grahpql schema




A graphql microservice that parses rss feeds and returns a JSON representation of the given feed. It uses different parses installed from npm. When a parser fail it will try the next following this order: feedparser, rss-parser, feedme, rss-to-json. To specify a specific parser see example queries below.


npm i -g graphql-rss-parser


CLI for starting the server

$ graphql-rss-parser --help

  Usage: graphql-rss-parser [options] [command]


    help  Display help


    -h, --help          Output usage information
    -H, --host [value]  Host to listen on (defaults to "")
    -p, --port <n>      Port to listen on (defaults to 3000)
    -D, --sentry-dsn    Sentry DSN. This is used to configure logging with
    -v, --version       Output the version number

Sentry integration

The sentry integration can be enabled by passing the -D/--sentry-dsn cli option. It is important to note that errors that happens because errors in parsers or http requests will be filtered out. This is because the goal of this error tracking is to catch errors in the code of the service.

Example queries

feed(url: String, [parser: Parser])

  feed(url: "") {
    entries {
Specifying the parser.

graphql-rss-parser supports several of the rss parsers on npm. It can be specified with the parser option in a feed query as seen below.

Available parsers:

  feed(url: "", parser: FEEDPARSER) {
    entries {

findFeed(url: String)

  findFeed(url: "") {
