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 🙏

Smooth Scroll behavior polyfill




Smooth Scroll behavior polyfill

The Scroll Behavior specification has been introduced as an extension of the Window interface to allow for the developer to opt in to native smooth scrolling. To date this has only been implemented in Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

Check out all the methods covered here:

Installation and use

Download the production ready file here and include it in your project, or install it as a package.

# npm
npm install smoothscroll-polyfill --save

# yarn
yarn add smoothscroll-polyfill

When including the polyfill in a script tag, it will run immediately after loaded.

If you are importing it as a dependency, make sure to call the polyfill method:

import smoothscroll from 'smoothscroll-polyfill';

// kick off the polyfill!

In both cases, the script will detect if the spec is natively supported and take action only when necessary.

The code requires requestAnimationFrame polyfill for browsers which don't support it.

Force polyfill implementation

If you prefer to always override the native scrolling methods, place this global variable before requiring the module or including the polyfill file.

window.__forceSmoothScrollPolyfill__ = true;

We strongly recommend not to do this unless your project strongly needs it.


The requirements to contribute are yarn and the latest LTS Node.js version.

First, fork the repository and do yarn install in the root folder to get all the dependencies to work with. Create a feature branch, write your stuff and run yarn test to check code style and prevent bugs.

In this project we use Prettier to format the final published code, you can run yarn format before committing. If you don't, a precommit hook will prevent you from pushing code that hasn't been formatted properly.

Are you done? Awesome, submit a pull request explaining your changes.

This is a polyfill, not library, so make sure the behavior you are introducing is in the spec.

On tests files we are using ES2015, but the polyfill is written in ES5 for browser compatibility.

Watch tests

If you want to watch tests as you write your code run yarn test --watch.
