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.
Microsoft Orleans: Grain Caches
3 projects | dev.to | 15 Dec 2022
As for the implementation of the grain, I’m leaning heavily on an LRU cache from the package https://github.com/bitfaster/BitFaster.Caching/.
Best data structures and algorithms packages?
2 projects | /r/csharp | 22 Jan 2022
BitFaster.Caching - Contains some Psuedo-LRU caches with a good bit of customizability.

That's what I'm working toward with my language-ext library . Obviously more support for expression based programming would be welcome (and higher kinds), but you can do a lot with LINQ and a good integrated library surface.
Option<T> monad for Unity/UniTask
2 projects | /r/Unity3D | 10 Jul 2023
Definitely a fan of option types, I wonder this library has anything over the C# library language-ext which also has an Option type?
Result pattern: language-ext vs FunctionalExtensions?
2 projects | /r/dotnet | 7 Jul 2023
Hey, I am considering adopting the Result pattern in my codebase. Wanted to get some opinions from someone who has experience with it: should I start with language-ext or FunctionalExtensions?

Cool library. I've had a few of these patterns in my Sasa library for years, but you've taken it to the Haskell extreme! Probably further than most C# developers could stomach. ;-)
You might be interested in checking out the hash array mapped trie from Sasa . It cleverly exploits the CLR's reified generics to unbox the trie at various levels which ends up saving quite a bit of space and indirections, so it performs almost on par with the mutable dictionary.
I had an earlier version that used an outer struct to ensure it's never null, similar to how your collections seem to work, but switched to classes to make it more idiomatic in C#.
I recently started sketching out a Haskell-like generic "Deriving" source generator, contrasted with your domain-specific piecemeal approach, ie. [Record], [Reader], etc. Did you ever try that approach?
What C# feature blew your mind when you learned it?

language-ext supports it and it's pretty dang cool.4 projects | /r/csharp | 7 Feb 2023
Three words.,, => C# Functional Programming is awesome!!! Do you seasoned developers have any war-stories or nightmare stories regarding Functional Programming?
3 projects | /r/csharp | 29 Nov 2022
https://github.com/louthy/language-ext Honestly, this is pretty advanced for me, and im still a bit mind-blown looking at it, This is like the experts level library, with all of the methods AND tools to expand and build your own libraries.. While the above one just has the most commonly used It has a pretty cool immutable type generator I want to check out

Using functional extensions in production C# code?
3 projects | /r/csharp | 26 Aug 2022
