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.

The combined power of F# and C#
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Aug 2023
Giraffe is another interesting one to explore: https://giraffe.wiki/
Giraffe is nice because it is itself built "just" as ASP.NET Core Middleware so it plays a bit more nicely than Suave with a mixed stack of C#-defined Middleware.
It's more likely you accidentally fall back into just translating C# patterns to non-idiomatic F# with Giraffe, but it's also nicer when in that case of needing to live in both worlds and use a mixture of libraries built for C# ASP.NET projects.

There are also some F# frameworks built on top of ASP.NET core like https://giraffe.wiki
Is there any advantage to using F# instead of C#?
3 projects | /r/dotnet | 12 Sep 2022
If you have an interest in F#, I highly recommend diving in because (1) it has a ton of things you might learn to appreciate in C#; (2) it has things C# cannot have. I do like some of the suggestions people have made regarding mixing your code bases, but I'll also say that building, say, endpoint routing in Giraffe is (to repeat myself) easy, simple, and elegant.3 projects | /r/dotnet | 12 Sep 2022
Yep! Like this comment says, you'll have to sprinkle some |> ignore here and there for your startup. We use Giraffe for defining our endpoints; I actively like the explicitness of it, and I think ASP.NET Core's Minimal API's are a step in a great direction.
Targeting Node, Bun and Deno With F#

If you were to create a Web API today from scratch how would you do it ?
7 projects | /r/dotnet | 2 Apr 2022
Backend: Most likely it would be a toss between https://saturnframework.org or https://giraffe.wiki. They both combins the extremely good type system in F# combined with the ease of a minimal API.
Overriding JSON serializer in Giraffe
2 projects | dev.to | 4 Jan 2022
By default Giraffe, the framework which I use as a web server, uses Newtonsoft.Json to serialize results to JSON. However, for discriminated union, it generates quite a lot of JSON so I've switched to System.Text.Json which is built into newer versions of .Net Core. In combination with FSharp.SystemTextJson package allows serializing discriminated unions more gracefully. All we need is to decorate Branch type with JsonFSharpConverter(JsonUnionEncoding.BareFieldlessTags) attribute.

Giraffe is a library that sits atop ASP.NET Core and allows developers to build web applications in a functional style; dotnet new giraffe is literally my starting point when I begin a new web application project. (Rather than write three more sentences filled with effusive praise, I’ll just leave it at that; it’s great.) It also provides a view engine (that builds upon Suave‘s “experimental” view engine) which uses an F# DSL to define HTML in a strongly-typed way. It has been incredibly efficient for a while, but with .NET’s work over the past two releases at improving performance, and Giraffe’s adoption of those techniques, it is lightning fast.
Show HN: F# web server in 3-4 lines of code

Wrapping ASP.NET Core to be easier and more idiomatic with F# seems to be a common domain. Out of curiosity, did you look at any existing projects? If so, what was lacking from them that made you decide to write WebFrame?8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Nov 2021
You don't have to use asp.net directly in F# - there's been a long-standing library wrapping it in a more functional aesthetic with Giraffe: https://github.com/giraffe-fsharp/Giraffe
Not to discourage you or anything - always good to see alternatives. Personally, for FP web programming, the closer to the "your server as a function" ideal the better - so I'd prefer Giraffe in this case, for things like the router being an HttpHandler instead of being a property on the app. It's just way more intuitive from an FP standpoint and produces neater, more self-contained code, IMO.
