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 Google Maps API integration





React Google Maps API 1.0.8

This library requires React v16.6 or later. If you need support for earlier versions of React, you should check out react-google-maps

This is complete re-write of the (sadly unmaintained) react-google-maps library. We thank tomchentw for his great work that made possible.

react-google-maps-api provides very simple bindings to the google maps api and lets you use it in your app as React components.

Here are the main additions to react-google-maps that were the motivation behind this re-write

Install react-google-maps-api

npm i -S react-google-maps-api babel-polyfill @babel/runtime


npm i -D @babel/preset-env @babel/preset-react @babel/plugin-proposal-object-rest-spread @babel/plugin-proposal-class-properties @babel/plugin-transform-spread @babel/plugin-syntax-dynamic-import @babel/plugin-transform-runtime babel-plugin-macros babel-plugin-transform-react-remove-prop-types

If you do not have .babelrc file, create it next to package.json

Content of .babelrc should look like this:

  "presets": [
  "plugins": [
        "corejs": false,
        "helpers": true,
        "regenerator": true,
        "useESModules": false
  "env": {
    "production": {
      "plugins": [

Main features

  • Simplified API
  • Uses the new Context API
  • Supports async React (StrictMode complient)
  • Removes lodash dependency => smaller bundle size 12.4kb, tree-shakeable[email protected]
  • forbids loading of Roboto fonts, if you set property preventGoogleFonts on <LoadScript preventGoogleFonts /> component


Examples can be found in two places:

  1. Official docs (powered by docz). See the docs folder
  2. A Gatsby app including some examples. See the examples folder
  3. Gatsby.js Demo


You can save on bundle size if you import only components, which you use from react-google-maps-api/lib/..., although whole library is tree-shakable.

Using the examples requires you to generate a google maps api key. For instructions on how to do that please see the following guide
