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 lighting fast cache manager for node with least-recently-used policy.





Build Status codecov npm

A lighting fast cache manager for node with least-recently-used policy.

A super fast cache for node with LRU policy. Cache will keep on adding values until the maxSize is reached.

After that it will start popping out the Least recently used/accessed value from the cache in order to set the new ones.

Supports expiry and stale.

Implemented using doubly-linked-list and hashmap with O(1) time complexity for gets and sets.


$ npm install --save lru-cache-node


const Cache = require('lru-cache-node');

let cache = new Cache(3); //set max size of cache as three

cache.set('a', 7); //sets a value in cache with 'a' as key and 7 as value
cache.set('b', 5);
cache.set('c', 3); 
  [ { key: 'c', value: 3 },
    { key: 'b', value: 5 },
    { key: 'a', value: 7 } ]
cache.set('d', 10) // pops out a
  [ { key: 'd', value: 10 },
    { key: 'c', value: 3 },
    { key: 'b', value: 5 } ]
cache.get("b") //returns 5 and makes it most recently used
  [ { key: 'b', value: 5 },
    { key: 'd', value: 10 },
    { key: 'c', value: 3 } ]

cache.peek("d") //returns 10 but doesnt resets the order
  [ { key: 'b', value: 5 },
    { key: 'd', value: 10 },
    { key: 'c', value: 3 } ]

let cache = new Cache(3, 10); //Initialize Cache with size 3 and expiry for keys as 10ms
const sleep = ms => new Promise(r => setTimeout(r, ms));

cache.set('a', 7); //valid for 10ms
cache.get('a'); //returns 7 and resets 10ms counter
await sleep(15);
cache.get('a'); //null

cache.set('b', 5, 30); //overwrites cache's default expiry of 10ms and uses 30ms
await sleep(15);
cache.get('b'); //returns 5 and resets the expiry of b back to 30ms
await sleep(35);
cache.get('b'); //null


cache(maxSize, maxAge, stale)


Type: Number Default: Infinity

Maximum size of the cache.


Type: Number Default: Infinity

Default expiry for all keys for the cache. It does not proactively deletes expired keys, but will return null when an expired key is being accessed.


Type: Boolean Default: false

If set to true, will return the value of expired key before deleting it from cache.

set(key, value, maxAge)


Key to be set.


Value for the key.


Expiry of the key. Will override cache's maxAge if specified.


Returns the value for the key. If not key does not exist will return null.

Both set() and get() will update the "recently used"-ness and expiry of the key.


Returns the value for the key, without making the key most recently used. If not key does not exist will return null.


Deletes the key from the cache.


Returns a boolean indication if the value exists in cache or not.


Alias for contains function.


Returns the current size of cache.


Clears the whole cache and reinitialize it.


Returns an array form of the catch.

let cache = new Cache();
cache.set("a", 5);
cache.set("b", 4);
cache.set("c", 0);
[ { key: 'c', value: 0 },
  { key: 'b', value: 4 },
  { key: 'a', value: 5 } ]


Takes a function and iterates over all the keys in the cache, in order of recentness. Callback takes key, value and index as params.

let cache = new Cache();
cache.set("a", 1);
cache.set("b", 2);
cache.set("c", 3);
cache.forEach((key, value, index) => {
	console.log(key, value, index)
c 3 0
b 2 1
a 1 2
