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 🙏

Combine an array of streams into a single duplex stream using pump and duplexify





Combine an array of streams into a single duplex stream using pump and duplexify. If one of the streams closes/errors all streams in the pipeline will be destroyed.

npm install pumpify

build status


Pass the streams you want to pipe together to pumpify pipeline = pumpify(s1, s2, s3, ...). pipeline is a duplex stream that writes to the first streams and reads from the last one. Streams are piped together using pump so if one of them closes all streams will be destroyed.

var pumpify = require('pumpify')
var tar = require('tar-fs')
var zlib = require('zlib')
var fs = require('fs')

var untar = pumpify(zlib.createGunzip(), tar.extract('output-folder'))
// you can also pass an array instead
// var untar = pumpify([zlib.createGunzip(), tar.extract('output-folder')])


If you are pumping object streams together use pipeline = pumpify.obj(s1, s2, ...). Call pipeline.destroy() to destroy the pipeline (including the streams passed to pumpify).

Using setPipeline(s1, s2, ...)

Similar to duplexify you can also define the pipeline asynchronously using setPipeline(s1, s2, ...)

var untar = pumpify()

setTimeout(function() {
  // will start draining the input now
  untar.setPipeline(zlib.createGunzip(), tar.extract('output-folder'))
}, 1000)





pumpify is part of the mississippi stream utility collection which includes more useful stream modules similar to this one.
