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 🙏

React.js wrapper for ApexCharts




Download and Installation

Installing via npm
npm install react-apexcharts apexcharts


import Chart from 'react-apexcharts'

To create a basic bar chart with minimal configuration, write as follows:

class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {

    this.state = {
      options: {
        chart: {
          id: 'apexchart-example'
        xaxis: {
          categories: [1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999]
      series: [{
        name: 'series-1',
        data: [30, 40, 35, 50, 49, 60, 70, 91, 125]
  render() {
    return (
      <Chart options={this.state.options} series={this.state.series} type="bar" width={500} height={320} />

This will render the following chart

How do I update the chart?

Simple! Just change the series or any option and it will automatically re-render the chart.

View this example on codesandbox

Important: While updating the options, make sure to update the outermost property even when you need to update the nested property.

✅ Do this

  options: {
    xaxis: {
      categories: ['X1', 'X2', 'X3']

❌ Not this

  options.xaxis.categories: ['X1', 'X2', 'X3']


| Prop | Type | Description | | ------------- |-------------| -----| | series | Array | The series is an array which accepts object in the following format. To know more about the format of dataSeries, checkout Series docs on the website. | | type | String | line, area, bar, pie, donut, scatter, bubble, heatmap, radialBar | | width | Number/String | Possible values for width can be 100% or 400px or 400 | | height | Number/String | Possible values for width can be 100% or 300px or 300 | | options | Object | The configuration object, see options on API (Reference) |

How to call methods of ApexCharts programmatically?

Sometimes, you may want to call other methods of the core ApexCharts library, and you can do so on ApexCharts global variable directly


ApexCharts.exec('reactchart-example', 'updateSeries', [{
  data: [40, 55, 65, 11, 23, 44, 54, 33]

More info on the .exec() method can be found here

All other methods of ApexCharts can be called this way
