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.
Ten Years of TypeScript

> But they admitted namespaces, enums
And decorators. But this was very early on and they won’t ever do it again unless there’s a drastic change on principle and probably a reorg of global proportion. They categorically reject anything with runtime implications now, and to the point of decorators are actively working to align them with the standard as it’s approaching stability.
> and interfaces into the language (the latter becoming more and more confusing as type aliases got more expressive) […] Is "as", "is", or "satisfies" expression-level?
No. All of this is completely separate from the runtime and on a standards course to be treated effectively as comments.
> But the enums!
I’m one of the minority who actually likes TS enums, but I strongly suspect they’ll be deprecated, alongside namespaces, as soon as there’s general consensus around types as comments. The TypeScript team considers these mistakes and would very much like to be able to drop them. I’d welcome that too even though I quite like enums.
The fact is TS has considerable backwards compatibility expectations, and aligning their mistakes with their goals is great on principle but something which would require thousands upon thousands of hours of labor for people to accommodate.
You can snipe all you want, but if you think it’s that easy to resolve maybe I can direct you to https://github.com/microsoft/TypeScript/pulls
I’m not affiliated with the team in any way but I’m almost totally certain they’d welcome a contribution that gets them closer to their stated principles where historical designs are entrenched, without breaking workflows for thousands of people and interrupting releases for millions.8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 1 Oct 2022
TypeScript has lots of great features and a few bizarrely bad ones. It’s great in spite of itself.
I’m curious, how many people are using TSC only for type-checking, and a different system (eg esbuild or ts-node) to actually compile/bundle/execute their code?
I think TypeScript would be even stronger if they focused fully on type-checking, and relaxed some of those dogmatic restrictions (and the many, many confusing config options) imposed by the JS code generator.
[AskJS] Do you consider ESM to have more benefits than drawbacks in node?
Because it's implicit, CJS creates a bunch of resolution issues with Typescript, to the point where if you want to code for the browser, you can't easily can't and have to either recompile with something like webpack to rewrite the module resolution, or add .js to all your TS imports, which already looks weird (you'd think you're importing the .ts files). sip.js has that issue.

What's the current state of CSS (with React)

Personally, what I'd recommend right now, even if we weren't dealing with the current React 18/streaming CSS thing, is Linaria.

[AskJS] Anyone using Linaria + Vite?
Linaria seems like a great project to me. It provides the same development experience of Styled Components but without its performance penalty, since the styles are extracted into ordinary CSS instead of being built during runtime. This is particularly interesting for mobile devices.
The React core team finally have opinions about CSS

Facebook/Meta had announced plans to open source their own zero-runtime CSS-in-JS tool, but that was several years ago so may never happen. There are several open source alternatives. An engineer at Airbnb recently blogged about that companies move from a runtime CSS-in-JS library to Linaria, a zero runtime option.
