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 🙏

Compress and decompress Sets of non-negative Integers.

Compress and decompress Sets of non-negative Integers.

Getting Started

$ npm install --save set-compressor


Consider an sequential array with gaps of the form [0, 1, 2, ..., 498, 499, 500, 700, 701, 702, ..., 998, 999, 1000]. We want to store this efficiently. This is where this utility comes in handy.

const compressor = require('set-compressor').Compressor({/* options */});

compressor.compress([0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]);
// => /wc=

// => [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]

Further examples can be found below.



The following options can be passed in when creating a Compressor.


Type: constants.GZIP_MODE Default: AUTO

Controls how to use gzip: AUTO, FORCE and NEVER, where the default only uses compression if it improves the result size.


Type: zlib.constants Default: Z_BEST_COMPRESSION

Can be set to control the gzip compression level.


The following functions are available on the created Compressor.


Takes Iterable of non-negative Integers as input and returns compressed string.


Takes compressed string as input and returns Array of unique, non-negative, sorted Integers.




Defines gzip mode used internally.


const compressor = require('set-compressor').Compressor({/* options */});

compressor.compress([0, 1, 2, /* ..., */ 9998, 9999, 10000]);
// => "H4sIAAAAAAACA/v/fxSMglEwCoYrYAAAhHk44+MEAIA="

// => [0, 1, 2, ..., 9998, 9999, 10000]

compressor.decompress(compressor.compress([2, 2, 5, 1, 0]));
// => [0, 1, 2, 5]

Gotchas and Lmitations

This library operates with Arrays for performance reasons.

Any iterable containing non-negative integers can be provided as input, but re-inflating always outputs a unique and ordered Array.

This library is not meant to be used with and wont work well with huge Integers.
