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 🙏

Clustered web framework that favors convention over configuration.




Build Status NPM version


MinorJS is an unopinionated, ultra-minimal web framework that alleviates the pain of routing, testing, and deployment clustering for Node.js applications.

Why MinorJS?

By starting with MinorJS you maintain the freedom to develop your application with whichever technologies and philosophies you find appropriate for your Node.js project. MinorJS only handles routing, testing, and deployment clustering, ensuring that you have the tools to develop with speed and ship with confidence.


This package is available on npm as:

npm install minorjs


  • Clustered to support fault tolerance and load balancing.
  • Zero-downtime rolling restarts.
  • Framework-level error handling and logging to keep your site running.
  • Per-environment configurations.
  • Automatic route wiring; just create a controller module!
  • Run filters before each request.
  • Request profiling.
  • Automatically reload changed modules (controllers/templates/etc) in development with no manual restarting. Save and refresh your browser!
  • Express-style request middleware.
  • Template mixins: execute Javascript from your templates.

Functional testing

You can easily write functional tests of your MinorJS application using the MinorJS testing framework.

You can make requests to your site with a headless browser, access data in the DOM with jQuery-style selectors and build your tests with standard tools like Mocha and Should.


While MinorJS is written in Javascript, the framework happily works with CoffeeScript.

Node.js versions

To support updated packages, minorjs version 7 and up works with Node.js 10 and up. Minorjs versions 2-7 works with Node.js 4 and up. If you need to run minorjs on Node.js 0.10 you can install minorjs version 1.4.0.
