Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
How does writing shader source code work for OpenGL ES?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/opengl | 14 Mar 2022
As others have pointed out, the biggest difference you're seeing is likely due to the _version_ of OpenGL (and hence GLSL) version. That said, there are still important differences. I'd recommend looking at a comparison between the same shader in a project that supports both OpenGL & OpenGLES. For example, here's a shader from cocos2d-x https://github.com/cocos2d/cocos2d-x/blob/v4/cocos/renderer/shaders/positionColor.vert. Note the only difference in this case is the additional precision qualifier (lowp) for v_fragmentColor. Note too how cocos uses preprocessor macros to handle this, so they don't have to maintain separate shader sources. Depending on your goals, you might be interested in tools like Nvidia cg or nvFX that allow for creating shaders in a dialect agnostic way, but ymmv.

Still have nothing to do with VS Code - WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH IT IN TERMS OF MAKING THINGS THAT ARE RELEVANT TO MAKING AN RPG MAKER MV GAME, NOT JUST EDITING NORMAL TEXT!? + DOES USING VS CODE WITH BASIC THINGS IN GITHUB WORTH IT?

Speaking about markdown files on GitHub, I know that there are some repositories that have very stunning README markdown files, such as this one for Cocos2d-x, whcih includes images in conjunction with text. I might do the same for my repository as well. Considering VS Code have an extension for .md files, this might come in handy when I consider using VS Code to contribute to my game projects.
