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 🙏

A React Component for parallax effect working in client-side and server-side rendering environment




react-parallax NPM version


yarn add react-parallax

Demo on codesandbox


If you find any bug or have problems and/or ideas regarding this library feel free to open an issue or pull request. Either way please create a working example so I can reproduce it. Link to a repository or even easier - fork the demo codesandbox project. This would help a lot.

This project is maintained during evenings and weekends. If you like it, please consider to buy me a coffee ;-) ...or contribute in other ways.

Usage examples

Basic - background image with fixed blur effect

import { Parallax } from 'react-parallax';

const Container = () => (
    <Parallax blur={10} bgImage="path/to/image.jpg" bgImageAlt="the cat" strength={200}>
        Content goes here. Parallax height grows with content height.

Dynamic blur and negative strength for reverse direction

import { Parallax, Background } from 'react-parallax';

const Container = () => (
        blur={{ min: -15, max: 15 }}
        bgImageAlt="the dog"
        Blur transition from min to max
        <div style={{ height: '200px' }} />

Custom background element

Use the background component for custom elements. Unlike the bgImage this one will not be scaled depending on the parent/window width.

import { Parallax, Background } from 'react-parallax';

const Container = () => (
    <Parallax strength={300}>
        <Background className="custom-bg">
            <img src="" alt="fill murray" />

Render prop

Calculate your own stuff depending on the percentage value.

import { Parallax, Background } from 'react-parallax';

const Container = () => (
        renderLayer={percentage => (
                    position: 'absolute',
                    background: `rgba(255, 125, 0, ${percentage * 1})`,
                    left: '50%',
                    top: '50%',
                    width: percentage * 500,
                    height: percentage * 500,
        <p>... Content</p>

Background Component

Child nodes inside this Background will be positioned like the bgImage behind the other children. Unlike the bgImage there is no automatic scaling.
