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 🙏

Ngext is a tool which abstracts an angular application and drastically simplifies the routing. It has the following features:

  • File-based routing (no more routing modules!)
  • All lazy loaded modules generation
  • Dynamic configurations (no more static angular.json files)
  • Declarative route layouts
  • Server-side rendering, (HTML file for each page!)
  • Compatible with all your existing angular files @NgModules, @Components, ...etc


Get Started


npm i -g ngext


Usage: ngext [options] [command]

  -v, --version      output the version number
  -h, --help         display help for command

  new [ProjectName]  Creates a new project
  build              Builds the ngext app
  export             Exports the ngext app with SSR
  dev                Runs the ngext app locally
  help [command]     display help for command

Why use this?

Angular has many elegant abstractions, @Component, @Module, @Injectable. However, the routing in Angular is not a simple abstraction.

In order to add a new page, Angular routing requires that you edit 3 places; add a component file, declare component in a module, and add a route to a routing module.


This project attempts to encapsulate this into a single abstraction @PageComponent, which contains the component, dependencies and the route path which is generated from the page location. Making it easier than ever to add new pages to Angular apps.
