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.
Path forward from Arduino to embedded C/C++
5 projects | /r/embedded | 11 Mar 2022
There are some design decisions Arduino made that maybe restrict in one aspect, but there's nothing wrong with dropping down to a lower level or jumping sideways to a slightly customized version that does just the right thing. e.g. If digitalWrite() isn't fast enough, somebody wrote a digitalWriteFast() that works with some AVRs. Otherwise, you can probably just hunt down the source yourself, make your own copy of it, and change it to be the way you need. That's a great way to learn, too
Understanding the rarely seen EVERY_N_MILLIS_I ?

Or just use TaskScheduler and never have to worry about this again. https://github.com/arkhipenko/TaskScheduler

For reference, I'm a big fan of this scheduler in particular, due to it's simplicity, OO support and a neat extra of sleeping each unused millisecond (low power for free).
