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 JavaScript/TypeScript library implementing the chess game rules and providing tools to read/write the standard chess file formats.





Kokopu is a JavaScript/TypeScript chess library. It implements the chess game rules, and provides tools to read/write the standard chess file formats (PGN, FEN, UCI, etc.).

Build Status Coverage Status



Migrate to 3.x and 4.x

Versions 3.0.0 and 4.0.0 introduce some breaking changes with regard to the previous versions. To determine whether your codebase needs to be adapted or not when upgrading Kokopu, please look at:


  • Chess move generation.
  • Check, checkmate and stalemate detection.
  • Move legality check.
  • Algrebraic notation parsing and generation.
  • FEN notation parsing and generation.
  • UCI move parsing and generation.
  • PGN file parsing and generation (including advanced PGN features such as commentaries, sub-variations, NAGs, non-standard starting position...).
  • Support several chess variants:
    • Chess960, also known as Fischer Random Chess.
    • Antichess, also known as losing chess, giveaway chess, suicide chess...
    • Horde chess (following Lichess/ rules).

Kokopu is a headless library, meaning it does not provide any user interface. If you are interested in UI features (e.g. to be able to render a chessboard component within a web page), you may take a look at Kokopu-React, which is a React-based library built on top of Kokopu to provide these kind of features.


const { Position } = require('kokopu');

// Create a new position, play some moves...
const position = new Position();'e4');'e5');'Nf3');

// Display an ASCII-art representation of the position.
