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.
An app I rarely see be suggested is DroidFS, but I think it deserves more credit

It is cool, I suggest it. Another similar application is Secure-File-Manager but I am not using it 'cause it's still in Alpha/Beta.

Modern Android Development in 2023

Is it acceptable to use mock servers, like Postman, for testing in Android?

Being more familiar with Android development only, I mainly use https://github.com/square/okhttp/tree/master/mockwebserver
Best libraries for Android Developers
19 projects | dev.to | 15 Jul 2022
Retrofit is the best library that lets you connect to HTTP-based API services from your Android applications. It leverages the OkHttp library’s core functionality, adding a bunch of features to it while eliminating the boilerplate code.
How to use Cronet Engine for API calls? Any simple repo for it to understand?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/androiddev | 30 Jun 2022
Use Retrofit or anything else that builds on OkHttp. If you do end up needing some features that Cronet supports but OkHttp doesn't (such as HTTP/3), just write an interceptor or use google/cronet-transport-for-okhttp.
IPv6 Support on Android
2 projects | reddit.com/r/RedditEng | 31 May 2022
Even as of 2022, there are networks out there that have broken/misconfigured IPv6, and there most likely always will be. Some wireless carriers and ISPs support it, but in some cases, people have old or improperly-configured routers and devices. Patchy IPv6 support is less of a problem on iOS and the web these days since those clients have support for dynamically falling back on IPv4 when IPv6 fails. After more research, we realized that Android didn’t have this “dual-stack” IP support, and neither did our preferred networking library, OkHttp. This explained why the content-loading issues only surfaced on Android, and why it took some additional digging to uncover the root cause.2 projects | reddit.com/r/RedditEng | 31 May 2022
Working with the reddit infrastructure team, we did more testing and built high confidence that this last IPv6 theory was indeed the cause of users’ content-loading problems. We assessed our usage of OkHttp and checked if there were any upcoming plans to improve support. OkHttp did have an open ask for “Happy Eyeballs” #506, but no known plans to implement it. Out of due diligence, we also assessed other network libraries– but knew that moving off OkHttp would be a radical change, indeed. We read the RFC 8305, “Happy Eyeballs algorithm for dual-stack IPv4/IPv6”, and thought “wow, we don’t want to implement this ourselves.” And as we were studying that open OkHttp issue and thinking “If only they would…”
App Flow of an Android App?

Your app would request data from the backend inside it's domain layer. As the other commenter mentioned, Retrofit is a commonly used library for interfacing with REST APIs, which is built on top of OkHttp (a more generic HTTP client).

Reddit back to IPv6!
2 projects | reddit.com/r/ipv6 | 25 Mar 2022
Word is that the official Reddit mobile app is using the OkHttp Java library, which seems at first to support every conceivable feature, but apparently didn't support Happy Eyeballs at that time.

I’ve learned a TON from the [okhttp3](https://square.github.io/okhttp/) codebase, highly recommend studying it.
