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 🙏

node.js backend layer for i18next using fs module to load resources from filesystem







Travis Coveralls npm version David

This is a i18next backend to be used node.js. It will load resources from filesystem. Right now it supports following filetypes:

  • .json
  • .json5
  • .yml
  • .cson

Getting started

Source can be loaded via npm.

$ npm install i18next-node-fs-backend

Wiring up:

var i18next = require("i18next");
var Backend = require("i18next-node-fs-backend");


As with all modules you can either pass the constructor function (class) to the i18next.use or a concrete instance.

Backend Options

  // path where resources get loaded from
  loadPath: '/locales/{{lng}}/{{ns}}.json',

  // path to post missing resources
  addPath: '/locales/{{lng}}/{{ns}}.missing.json',

  // jsonIndent to use when storing json files
  jsonIndent: 2,

  // custom parser
  parse: function(data) { return data; }

hint {{lng}}, {{ns}} use the same prefix, suffix you define in interpolation for translations!!!

Options can be passed in:

preferred - by setting options.backend in i18next.init:

var i18next = require("i18next");
var Backend = require("i18next-node-fs-backend");

  backend: options

on construction:

var Backend = require("i18next-node-fs-backend");
var backend = new Backend(null, options);

by calling init:

var Backend = require("i18next-node-fs-backend");
var backend = new Backend();
