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.

I'm working on https://github.com/mkhan45/RustScript_v2. Of course you can tell from the name it's a bit of a joke but I started writing it just to learn OCaml but I made so much progress so quickly and soon I'll implement a few web server builtins so I can rewrite my personal website in it.
Where can I find resources and guides on how to build compiler backends?

Cwerg has backend that can be used as JIT and is written with readability in mind. Additional documentation can be found here: https://github.com/robertmuth/Cwerg/tree/master/Docs

I was also going down the path of bike shedding concrete syntax for my language Cwerg before pulling the plug on that effort and just using s-exprs. I managed to make the s-expr quite succinct by carefully choosing the order of arguments so I can omit optional ones. Also very helpful was to use square brackets for list, e.g. (call fun-name [arg1 arg2]). This simplifies parsing a little bit and is easier on the eye. Here are some Code Examples

I am iterating over the languages features for Cwerg's Frontend which aims to be a low level language with about the complexity of C but with some of the comforts of modern languages. I am especially happy with the choice of adding sum types. Relative to C the current feature set looks like this: Removed: * arrays decay to pointers * bitfields * separate compilation (more of a backend issue) * pre-processor * varargs * implcit type conversions * (untagged) unions * ++/-- * comma operator * implicitly nullable pointers * goto

Current work is focused on finding the right feature set. After spending way too much time on thinking about a concrete syntax I decided to instead work on the AST and use S-Expr to serialize it. I plan on sticking with the S-Expr as the "file format" and offer tooling to go back and forth to the yet to be defined concrete syntax.
How hard is it to add JIT to an interpreter?

Shameless plug: Cwerg can be used as a JIT for x86-64, Aarch64 and Arm32.
