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 native library for health connect (Android only)




This library is a wrapper around Health Connect for react native. Health Connect is an Android API and platform. It unifies data from multiple devices and apps into an ecosystem. For Android developers, it provides a single interface for reading and writing a user’s health and fitness data. For Android users, it offers a place for control over which apps have read and/or write access to different types of data. Health Connect also provides on-device storage. Read more here.


  • Health Connect needs to be installed on the user's device, However the goal is to have this app preinstalled on Android devices in the future.
  • Health Connect API requires minSdkVersion=26 (Android Oreo / 8.0).


Install react-native-health-connect by running:

yarn add react-native-health-connect@latest

Since this module is Android-only, you do not need to run pod install.

Expo installation

This package cannot be used in the Expo Go app, but it can be used with custom managed apps. Just add the config plugin to the plugins array of your app.json or app.config.js:

First install the package with yarn, npm, or expo install.

expo install react-native-health-connect

Then add the prebuild config plugin to the plugins array of your app.json or app.config.js:

  "expo": {
    "plugins": ["react-native-health-connect"]
  • Edit your app.json again and add this
  "expo": {
    "plugins": [
          "android": {
            "compileSdkVersion": 34,
            "targetSdkVersion": 34,
            "minSdkVersion": 26

Then rebuild the native app:

  • Run expo prebuild
  • Rebuild the app
    • yarn android -- Build on Android.

If the project doesn't build correctly with yarn android, please file an issue and try setting the project up manually.

Finally create a new EAS development build

eas build --profile development --platform android


A quick example at a glance:

import {
} from 'react-native-health-connect';

const readSampleData = async () => {
  // initialize the client
  const isInitialized = await initialize();

  // request permissions
  const grantedPermissions = await requestPermission([
    { accessType: 'read', recordType: 'ActiveCaloriesBurned' },

  // check if granted

  const result = await readRecords('ActiveCaloriesBurned', {
    timeRangeFilter: {
      operator: 'between',
      startTime: '2023-01-09T12:00:00.405Z',
      endTime: '2023-01-09T23:53:15.405Z',
  // {
  //   result: [
  //     {
  //       startTime: '2023-01-09T12:00:00.405Z',
  //       endTime: '2023-01-09T23:53:15.405Z',
  //       energy: {
  //         inCalories: 15000000,
  //         inJoules: 62760000.00989097,
  //         inKilojoules: 62760.00000989097,
  //         inKilocalories: 15000,
  //       },
  //       metadata: {
  //         id: '239a8cfd-990d-42fc-bffc-c494b829e8e1',
  //         lastModifiedTime: '2023-01-17T21:06:23.335Z',
  //         clientRecordId: null,
  //         dataOrigin: 'com.healthconnectexample',
  //         clientRecordVersion: 0,
  //         device: 0,
  //       },
  //     },
  //   ],
  // }


For iOS there are two alteranatives you can use which is very similar to Health Connect on Android. First one is @kingstinct/react-native-healhkit and the other one is react-native-health. These options are similar in functionality and can help you manage your health data on iOS.
