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 🙏

Tools for working with OpenAI streams in Node.js and TypeScript.




OpenAI Streams

Github | NPM | Docs

Now with ChatGPT API support! See Use with ChatGPT API. (Whisper coming soon!)

This library returns OpenAI API responses as streams only. Non-stream endpoints like edits etc. are simply a stream with only one chunk update.

  • Prioritizes streams, so you can display a completion as it arrives.
  • Auto-loads OPENAI_API_KEY from process.env.
  • One single function with inferred parameter type based on the endpoint you provide.

Uses ReadableStream by default for browser, Edge Runtime, and Node 18+, with a NodeJS.Readable version available at openai-streams/node.


yarn add openai-streams
# -or-
npm i --save openai-streams


  1. Set the OPENAI_API_KEY env variable (or pass the { apiKey } option).

    The library will throw if it cannot find an API key. Your program will load this at runtime from process.env.OPENAI_API_KEY by default, but you may override this with the { apiKey } option.

    IMPORTANT: For security, you should only load this from a process.env variable.

    await OpenAI(
      {/* params */}, 
      { apiKey: process.env.MY_SECRET_API_KEY }
  2. Call the API via await OpenAI(endpoint, params).

    The params type will be inferred based on the endpoint you provide, i.e. for the "edits" endpoint, import('openai').CreateEditRequest will be enforced.

Edge/Browser: Consuming streams in Next.js Edge functions

This will also work in the browser, but you'll need users to paste their OpenAI key and pass it in via the { apiKey } option.

import { OpenAI } from "openai-streams";

export default async function handler() {
  const stream = await OpenAI(
      model: "text-davinci-003",
      prompt: "Write a happy sentence.\n\n",
      max_tokens: 100

  return new Response(stream);

export const config = {
  runtime: "edge"

Node: Consuming streams in Next.js API Route (Node)

If you cannot use an Edge runtime or want to consume Node.js streams for another reason, use openai-streams/node:

import type { NextApiRequest, NextApiResponse } from "next";
import { OpenAI } from "openai-streams/node";

export default async function test (_: NextApiRequest, res: NextApiResponse) {
  const stream = await OpenAI(
      model: "text-davinci-003",
      prompt: "Write a happy sentence.\n\n",
      max_tokens: 25


See the example in example/src/pages/api/hello.ts. See also src/pages/api/demo.ts in nextjs-openai.

Use with ChatGPT API

By default, with mode = "tokens", you will receive just the message deltas. For full events, use mode = "raw".


const stream = await OpenAI(
    model: "gpt-3.5-turbo",
    messages: [
      { "role": "system", "content": "You are a helpful assistant that translates English to French." },
      { "role": "user", "content": "Translate the following English text to French: \"Hello world!\"" }

In both modes, for Chat, you will receive a stream of serialized JSON objects. Even in mode = "tokens", you will need to parse the deltas because they sometimes indicate a role and sometimes indicate part of the message body. The stream chunks look like:

{"content":" le"}
{"content":" monde"}
{"content":" !\""}


  1. Internally, streams are often manipulated using generators via for await (const chunk of yieldStream(stream)) { ... }. We recommend following this pattern if you find it intuitive.
