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.
ELI5: How exactly does winrar profit without a major loss with their current business plan?
1 project | reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive | 10 May 2022
Their SDK is in the public domain though.
Searching Compressed Space

And that links to https://www.7-zip.org/sdk.html , in the download there see the DOC folder for documentation? I really can't figure out how that somehow 'sends you back to python's lzma'...
Silly Lossy Text Compression Idea

Sounds similar to: https://github.com/Cyan4973/FiniteStateEntropy
> The modern data compression is mainly based on two approaches to entropy coding: Huffman (HC) and arithmetic/range coding (AC). The former is much faster, but approximates probabilities with powers of 2, usually leading to relatively low compression rates. The latter uses nearly exact probabilities - easily approaching theoretical compression rate limit (Shannon entropy), but at cost of much larger computational cost.
