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.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning Lua yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
loxcraft: a compiler, language server, and online playground for the Lox programming language
14 projects | /r/ProgrammingLanguages | 29 Apr 2023
Bob Nystrom also has a blog, and his articles are really well written (see his post on Pratt parsers / garbage collectors). I'd also recommend going through the source code for Wren, it shares a lot of code with Lox. Despite the deceptive simplicity of the implementation, it (like Lox) is incredibly fast - it's a great way to learn how to build production grade compilers in general.14 projects | /r/ProgrammingLanguages | 29 Apr 2023
This is very nice! Well done! Can you open an issue on the wren lang repository and mention this? https://github.com/wren-lang/wren Wren is also written by Bob Nystrom and the implementations share a lot of things.
Bevy 0.10: data oriented game engine built in Rust
5 projects | /r/gamedev | 6 Mar 2023
Only kind of unrelated ... Every time I see the Bevy logo I'm reminded of Wren language https://wren.io/
Most important language features not touched in the book "Crafting Interpreters"?
2 projects | /r/ProgrammingLanguages | 23 Dec 2022
Check out the source to Wren: https://wren.io. It’s from the author of Crafting Interpreters and builds directly on what’s discussed in the book (essentially a more complete Lox) and adds several additional types, including an array.

What are some good C programs I can read through?

The best C code I have ever read is that of wren.

Well, basically I copied the second link from https://github.com/wren-lang/wren/wiki/Language-Bindings just randomly; I didn't think to check the release date to be honest with you, my bad.
The other Rust projects seems more updated, like https://github.com/Jengamon/ruwren was last updated in May 9.11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Aug 2022
