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.
Using C++ as a scripting language, part 6

Enabling C/C++ compilation in an application.

3) Similiar to 2, but use more common scripting languages: chai, cs-script, sol2 (c++ framework to embed lua)

A few years back I actually went and made a ChaiScript based video game engine (https://16bpp.net/blog/post/masala-a-chaiscript-game-engine/). The end goal for it was to be able to make a Pacman like clone, but have all of the game logic implemented in ChaiScript. I actually found out as I added more realtime elements (implemented in ChaiScript) that it started to take much longer to process the game logic; the "game loop FPS" was under 60, which is not good. I actually proposition that ChaiScript move to a bytecode VM (https://github.com/ChaiScript/ChaiScript/issues/266), but I'm guessing that no movement was made on that front.
Is it advisable to embed python in c++ ? Have anyone tried it, what is the best way to do it?

Looking for a codegen library that uses C++ for scripting

Maybe ChaiScript? It is not exactly what you are looking for, but very similar, in my opinion.
Any tips for how to make moddable games?
4 projects | /r/gamedev | 20 May 2023
As someone said, make the game data-driven is a good first step but I will say, also have some sort of way to add additional game logic. For C++ games, lua is really easy to embed the interpreter in your C++ binary, read in the files from a directory (like /mods) with the C++ filesystem api new in C++17, and it's very easy to use SoL to write an API for lua specific to your game. Many games use lua in this way and it's probably the most common mod path setup.

I've only ever done this from C++, but it's using the same lua C library, so should be durable from C as well. You can look up how sol2 or any other wrapper libraries do it.
CBN Changelog: December 3, 2022. Improved LUA support in progress!
2 projects | /r/cataclysmbn | 3 Dec 2022
This version relies on a Lua C++ wrapper called sol2 to hide Lua stack management from the developer, so creating new bindings can be done by adding a few lines of human-readable C++. It still has to be done manually, but at least sol2 is able to automatically figure out types of objects being bound, so it's not much different from our de-/serialization code.

jluna: a new Julia <-> C++ Wrapper
4 projects | /r/cpp | 12 Mar 2022
It is half of a pun as I was inspired by [sol3](https://github.com/ThePhD/sol2) which is a lua <-> c++ wrapper. Sol means sun and the julia c-api prefixes all it's functions with jl, luna means moon so it is pronounced "jay luna"4 projects | /r/cpp | 12 Mar 2022
So far, it has been cumbersome to embed it into C-language projects, because it's C-interface is hard to use and poorly documented. Because of this, many choose to just use python or lua instead.
A new C++ <-> Julia Wrapper: jluna

If you want to be portable I'd recommend C++ and Lua, I used those for years and it runs on everything and there's this most amazing wrapper API which was a huge inspiration

Off topic, but this is the author of my favourite Lua C++ binding library (https://github.com/ThePhD/sol2). Great guy!
