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 🙏

Webpack + RequireJS interoperable shared libraries




Travis Status


Webpack + RequireJS shared library interoperability!

Webpack and RequireJS both can consume AMD code straight up. Which means if you are in a transitional / complex scenario where you want some code to load with Webpack and other code to load with RequireJS from the same code base you can!

And, Webpack and RequireJS both have facilities for sharing libraries across entry points. Unfortunately, if loading both RequireJS and Webpack entry points on the same page, the applications cannot natively use the same shared library.

RequirePack bridges this gap by providing an interopability layer to allow a Webpack-generated shared library to be consumaed by RequireJS entry points.

Getting Started


$ npm install --save requirepack


TODO(8): Document Configuration


Ports various servers run on:

  • 3001: Static / demo server.
  • 3030: Ephemeral server for functional tests. Override via TEST_FUNC_PORT environment variable.


  • Shared Libraries: A deep dive into how shared libraries work in RequireJS, Webpack and are bridged with RequirePack.
  • Tests: Our test suite encompasses a lot of different types of builds that are likely to be encountered, running demos, and
