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 🙏

Plugin for webpack to cleanup extraneous files from the output path directory





This webpack plugin cleans up the extraneous files from the webpack's output path.

Since it runs when the compile process is finished, it is useful when building on production to remove the assets created by previous builds.

npm install webpack-cleanup-plugin --save-dev

npm version npm downloads Build Status

⚠️ Beware! This plugins actually delete files. Make sure it's safe for your app to delete files not generated by webpack. Use the exclude option if you want to keep files that are not webpack assets.


Install via npm:

npm install webpack-cleanup-plugin --save-dev

Then add the plugin to the plugins array in your webpack's config, e.g.:

// webpack.config.js
import WebpackCleanupPlugin from 'webpack-cleanup-plugin';
const config = {
  output: {
    path: "/my/output/path"
  // ...
  plugins: [
    new WebpackCleanupPlugin()
export default config;


  • If you want to keep some files in the output path, e.g. a stats.json file generated from some other plugins, use the exclude Array option. It accepts globbing as in minimatch.
// Do not delete `stats.json`, `important.json`, and everything in `folder`
new WebpackCleanupPlugin({
  exclude: ["stats.json", "important.js", "folder/**/*"],
  • To mute the console output, use the quiet option:
new WebpackCleanupPlugin({
  quiet: true,
  • To print the list of the files that will be deleted without actually deleting them, use the preview option:
new WebpackCleanupPlugin({
  preview: true,
