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 🙏

Automatically transform your Next.js Pages to use SuperJSON with SWC




/pages (Pages Directory)

export default function Page({ date }) {
  return <div>Today is {date.toDateString()}</div>;

// You can also use getInitialProps, getStaticProps
export const getServerSideProps = () => {
  return {
    props: {
      date: new Date(),
  • Allows pre-rendering functions to return props including Non-JSON Values(Date, Map, Set..)

/app (App Directory)

// Use "data-superjson" attribute to pass non-serializable props to client components
// No needs to change the propsType of Client Component (It's type-safe!)

export default function ServerComponent() {
  const date = new Date();
  return <ClientComponent date={date} data-superjson />;


Install packages first:

npm install superjson next-superjson-plugin
# or Yarn
yarn add superjson next-superjson-plugin

Add the plugin into next.config.js

// next.config.js
module.exports = {
  experimental: {
    swcPlugins: [["next-superjson-plugin", {}]],


You can use the excluded option to exclude specific properties from serialization.

['next-superjson-plugin', { excluded: ["someProp"] }],

How it works

    participant Next.js
    participant SWC Plugin
    participant SuperJSON
    Next.js->>SWC Plugin: Request Transform
    SWC Plugin->>SWC Plugin: Transform Pages/Components <br> To Use SuperJSON
    SWC Plugin->>Next.js: Take Modules
    Next.js-->SuperJSON: Connected
    Next.js->>SuperJSON: Serialize Props <br> (Date, BigInt, Set, Map..)
    Note over SWC Plugin: getInitialProps <br> getServerSideProps <br> getStaticProps <br> Server Components
    SuperJSON->>Next.js: Deserialize Props
    Note over SWC Plugin: Pages <br> Client Components

Bug Report

⚠️ Keep in mind: SWC Plugin is still an experimental feature for Next.js

Plugin always ensures compatibility with Next.js Canary version only.
