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 🙏

Library for bridging between RxJS and AngularJS.




Build Status GitHub version NPM version Downloads

rx.angular.lite.compat.js - Reactive Extensions Bindings for AngularJS Lite Compat for older browsers.

This library serves as a bridge between the Reactive Extensions for JavaScript (RxJS) Lite Compat library for older browsers and AngularJS.

With this library, you will be able to do such things as easily watch values as they change, as observable sequences such as:

angular.module('example', ['rx'])
  .controller('AppCtrl', function($scope, observeOnScope) {

    // Listen for changes on the name
    observeOnScope($scope, 'name').subscribe(function(change) {
      $scope.observedChange = change;
      $scope.newValue = change.newValue;
      $scope.oldValue = change.oldValue;

And with your HTML markup you can use it like this:

<div class="container" ng-app="example" ng-controller="AppCtrl">
  <h2>Reactive Angular</h2>
  <ul class="list-unstyled">
    <li>observedChange {{observedChange}}</li>
    <li>newValue: {{newValue}</li>
    <li>oldValue: {{oldValue}}</li>

  <input type="text" ng-model="name" />

Another example is where we can create an Observable sequence from such things ng-click expressions where we can search Wikipedia:

angular.module('example', ['rx'])
  .controller('AppCtrl', function($scope, $http, rx) {

    function searchWikipedia (term) {
      return rx.Observable
          url: "",
          method: "jsonp",
          params: {
            action: "opensearch",
            search: term,
            format: "json"
        .map(function(response){ return[1]; });             

    $ = '';
    $scope.results = [];

      Creates a "click" function which is an observable sequence instead of just a function.
      .map(function () { return $; })
      .subscribe(function(results) {
        $scope.results = results;

And the HTML markup you can simply just use a ng-click directive much as you have before, but now it is an Observable sequence.

<div class="container" ng-app="example" ng-controller="AppCtrl">

  <input type="text" ng-model="search">
  <button ng-click="click()">Search</button>

    <li ng-repeat="result in results">{{result}}</li>


This only scratches the surface of what is possible when you combine the two libraries together.
