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 🙏

Intersect two streams that emit sorted data





Get the intersection of two sorted streams.

npm install sorted-intersect-stream

build status


It is easy to use

const Intersect = require('sorted-intersect-stream')
const { Readable } = require('streamx')

const sorted1 = Readable.from([0, 10, 24, 42, 43, 50, 55])
const sorted2 = Readable.from([10, 42, 53, 55, 60])

// combine the two streams into a single intersected stream
const intersection = new Intersect(sorted1, sorted2)

intersection.on('data', function(data) {
  console.log('intersected at ' + data)

intersection.on('end', function() {
  console.log('no more intersections')

Running the above example will print

intersected at 10
intersected at 42
intersected at 55
no more intersections

When the intersection ends the two input streams will be destroyed. Setintersection.autoDestroy = false to disable this.

Streaming objects

If you are streaming objects sorting is based on the compare function you can pass as the 3rd argument.

const sorted1 = Readable.from([{ foo:'a' }, { foo:'b' }, { foo:'c' }])
const sorted2 = Readable.from([{ foo:'b' }, { foo:'d' }])

const i = new Intersect(sorted1, sorted2, function(a, b) {
  return < ? -1 : > ? 1 : 0

i.on('data', function(data) {

A good use-case for this kind of module is implementing something like full-text search where you want to intersect multiple index hits.

Intersecting LevelDB streams

Since levelup streams are sorted in relation to their keys it is easy to intersect them using sorted-intersect-stream.

If we wanted to intersect two namespaces foo and bar we could do it like so

const db = levelup('mydatabase', {valueEncoding:'json'})

const foo = db.createReadStream({
  start: 'foo:',
  end: 'foo;'

const bar = db.createReadStream({
  start: 'bar:',
  end: 'bar;'

const intersection = new Intersect(foo, bar, function (a, b) {
  const aKey = toKey(a)
  const bKey = toKey(b)
  return aKey < bKey ? -1 : aKey > bKey ? 1 : 0

function toKey (data) {
  // remove the namespace from the keys so they are comparable
  return data.key.split(':').slice(1).join(':')
