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.

> 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.

Third party libraries that include reflink copying?

I stopped writing bash too. I'm writing a lot of TypeScript these days, and for that zx is really cool. I think its Clojure equivalent would be nbb.
whats the advantages and disadvantages and limitations of worker thread in nodejs compared to multithreading in frameworks like spring ?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/node | 1 Aug 2022
I've also done that, as it is the better solution for applications that are meant to be purely single-threaded. It's also easier than dealing with the async version (either promise-based or callback). Or at least it was, before I discovered https://github.com/google/zx.
Bash vs Node
3 projects | reddit.com/r/node | 23 Jul 2022
Personally I seldom write bash scripts so when I do usually have to google how to do everything, and I usually have shellcheck in my editor to catch obvious bad practices. I write js much more often so I’ve used Shelljs to avoid such headaches, though it has its own set of conventions to wrap your head around. Zx looks neat too https://github.com/google/zx . If the scripts are going to be maintained by devs without node experience I’d stick with bash.

Yes. I can recommend zx from Google. It adds some handy features to node to make it more useful for everyday scripting5 projects | reddit.com/r/node | 25 May 2022

Curl, jq is the good answer here.
