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.
News for Ruby 3.2.0

Here's one that sounds like exactly the sort of example you had in mind: https://github.com/okeeblow/DistorteD/tree/NEW%E2%80%85SENSA...

Ruby adds a new core Data class to represent immutable value objects
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 29 Nov 2022
This is the use-case for me. Here's an actual example of a Struct I will probably convert to Data in the file-identification library I've been working on. Right now they just have their `#to_a` overridden to disable some of their annoying automatic Enumerable behavior: https://github.com/okeeblow/DistorteD/blob/dd2a99285072982d3...
Fun with File Formats
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Dec 2021
In addition to this resource and UK's equivalent (PRONOM/DROID, also mentioned in the linked post), I've found ArchiveTeam's wiki to be very useful for obscure file format details: http://fileformats.archiveteam.org/
The `shared-mime-info` database from freedesktop-dot-org is probably more worthy of contribution than these government-backed databases, at least in terms of number-of-end-users. New type definitions in their database will improve the entire Linux/BSD ecosystem (both desktop and server!) because it's consumed not only by fd.o's own `update-mime-database` utility but by many language-specific type-identification libraries too https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xdg/shared-mime-info/-/blob/m...
…including (shameless plug) the new Ractor-based Ruby type library I've been working on in the wake of the `mimemagic` drama earlier this year: https://github.com/okeeblow/DistorteD/tree/NEW%E2%80%85SENSA...
Building a Personal Website in 2021
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 May 2021
I considered switching to Hugo a while back but ended up sticking with Jekyll for the extensibility, like a few others have said. I'm particularly interested in image thumbnailing and format conversion since so many of my posts are image-heavy. I often found that to be my biggest and most frequent barrier to writing since plain text only goes so far on the modern web.
In Hugo, every solution I've seen uses a custom shortcode or custom Markdown image template-rendering hook along with Hugo's build-in image resizing. Many posts even suggest converting image resources to different formats with an external tool. It does seem like the image handling situation in Hugo is improving since it just gained WebP processing support in addition to JPEG: https://gohugo.io/news/0.83.0-relnotes/
Jekyll plugins offer way more power than a shortcode ('include' in Jekyll-speak) can, like how the author of the OP is using Jekyll-Picture-Tag. I've been working on my own similar plugin to handle converting and embedding my site's images, videos, SVGs, PDFs, text files, fonts and weird retro computer formats, etc. For example I can embed an SVG using standard Markdown syntax like `!(somediagram.svg)` and get a tag with the SVG plus rasterized JPG+WebP+AVIF+whatever at multiple sizes all totally seamlessly: https://github.com/okeeblow/DistorteD
Very happy the existence of Hugo lit a fire under the Jekyll team to work on speed though :)
Zola, A fast static site generator in a single binary

> It works at first, but you end up wanting to design your own custom SSG once you run up against something that goes against your mental model of how things should work.
There is a middle ground. I hit this point in Jekyll when I wanted Insanely Great image thumbnailing that no extant Jekyll plugin could provide, ended up writing my own tool to do that, but didn't want to duplicate the rest of Jekyll's functionality too. It's kiiinda hacky and I probably should propose the interface changes upstream if I keep doing this, but a very light monkey-patch lets my tool pretend to be a Jekyll::StaticFile that just happens to write out many separate files: https://github.com/okeeblow/DistorteD/blob/master/DistorteD-...
The Deception of “Buying” Digital Movies
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Oct 2022
I use this project by Don Melton to get a Blu-ray video down to an 8 - 10 GB file size: https://github.com/donmelton/video_transcoding
It uses HandBrake, FFmpeg, MKVToolNix, and MP4v2 with some custom tuned settings and has really good results from my experience.
What Are Your Most Used Self Hosted Applications?
50 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 May 2022
I have primarily used Plex and pretty much everything you said is accurate for Plex as well. Limited transcoding based on the machine it is running on. As disc has become cheaper, I have pretty much stopped doing batch transcodes, which is great for the most part. But there are definitely negatives when you want to watch something offline, or remotely. Biggest pain point is subtitles though. Since they aren't ripped as text and then sent to a client, they have to be burned in to the video itself and transcoded on the fly. Which means losing out on 'forced' ones if it can't transcode fast enough.
Plex has definitely started to try and commercialize itself more and offer other stuff, when all I want is access to my own media. So I may look into Jellyfin more soon.
As for batch transcode jobs, I had a system that I was able to set up as essentially a black box. Drop a rip into a folder and out the other side comes a smaller one at a reasonable quality. With forced subs burned right into the actual video. Mostly based on https://github.com/donmelton/video_transcoding
BluRay Movie File Size Question
2 projects | reddit.com/r/DataHoarder | 15 Oct 2021
I use Don Melton’s tools to transcode videos to mp4 files. His tools makes use of Handbrake but he has it tuned to produce very small video files of very high quality. You are unlikely to notice the difference when watching the videos.
Hit my goal. 100 movies in one year. Done the “old fashioned” way (rip—>encode). Made it with two days to spare. (Plex server built Sept 29, 2020)

Checkout https://github.com/donmelton/video_transcoding. In my experience produces higher quality and smaller files than handbrake alone.
