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 🙏

Export/import an IndexedDB database to/from JSON




indexeddb-export-import - JSON export/import for IndexedDB

IndexedDB is a client-side database API available in modern browsers and During development and testing of an web / desktop app which uses IndexedDB, it can be helpful to save, load, or clear the contents of an IndexedDB database - this package provides that capability.

You can use indexeddb-export-import in a Node.js environment imported as a module (eg. for use with an Electron app). You may also use it in a browser environment by simply including via a <script> tag.

Build Status NPM


You will need an open IDBDatabase connection.

The following example exports a database, clears all object stores, then re-imports the database. It uses Dexie.js to initiate the database, but this is not required.

const Dexie = require('Dexie');
const IDBExportImport = require('indexeddb-export-import');

const db = new Dexie('MyDB');
  things: 'id++, thing_name, thing_description',
}); {
  const idbDatabase = db.backendDB(); // get native IDBDatabase object from Dexie wrapper

  // export to JSON, clear database, and import from JSON
  IDBExportImport.exportToJsonString(idbDatabase, function(err, jsonString) {
    if (err) {
    } else {
      console.log('Exported as JSON: ' + jsonString);
      IDBExportImport.clearDatabase(idbDatabase, function(err) {
        if (!err) { // cleared data successfully
          IDBExportImport.importFromJsonString(idbDatabase, jsonString, function(err) {
            if (!err) {
              console.log('Imported data successfully');
}).catch(function(e) {
  console.error('Could not connect. ' + e);


exportToJsonString(idbDatabase, cb)

Export all data from an IndexedDB database

| Param | Type | Description | | --- | --- | --- | | idbDatabase | IDBDatabase | | | cb | function | callback with signature (error, jsonString) |

importFromJsonString(idbDatabase, jsonString, cb)

Import data from JSON into an IndexedDB database. This does not delete any existing data from the database, so keys could clash

| Param | Type | Description | | --- | --- | --- | | idbDatabase | IDBDatabase | | | jsonString | string | data to import, one key per object store | | cb | function | callback with signature (error), where error is null on success |

clearDatabase(idbDatabase, cb)

Clears a database of all data

| Param | Type | Description | | --- | --- | --- | | idbDatabase | IDBDatabase | | | cb | function | callback with signature (error), where error is null on success |


$ npm install indexeddb-export-import
