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.
What is the lightest C++ 3D game engine for Linux?

You might be interested in Urho3D.
I need a REALLY lightweight engine
3 projects | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 20 Dec 2021
If you don't mind something experimental, there is a C# version of Urho3D that is in fairly active development. There is also a C#-scriptable branch of the Urho3D fork, rbfx, located here. Both of these projects are still pretty in-the-works, but are still pretty usable.

Twitter's new font, Chirp, is apparently giving some users headaches
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Aug 2021
This looks very much as if the font renderer is aggressively hinting to the pixel grid vertically, but not horizontally. That’s a known trick for getting a decent compromise between crisp text (along the baselines and tops of letters) with subpixel horizontal kerning.
I doubt the Android renderer is really broken and no-one has noticed until now, so I’d guess the font either has bad hinting, or more likely it’s just being displayed at an awkward size and vertical positions are being rounded in an awkward way. You can see the slight deviations from the baseline in the iOS screenshots, it’s just much more subtle as it isn’t being hinted.
(Source: I contributed a little bit to font rendering in Urho3D, to fix some similar text aliasing glitches: https://github.com/urho3d/Urho3D/issues/1953)
What code only engines for C or C++ are there?

I've heard good things about Urho3d, but have never used it.
3D game engine for lower end pcs

Urho3D works on mobiles, Windows, Mac, and even on the R Pi. It's a code-first engine with a minimal editor.
2D game framework/engine that is mostly code driven (not GUI-driven)

Godot support for 3D is too primitive, and Unity has become a wild mess over the years. Is Unreal Engine the only remaining option for 3D projects?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 24 May 2021
You might give rbfx a look. It is an actively developed fork of Urho3D that has pretty decent, and actively developed, 3D rendering.
Best library for 3D development that doesn't require GLFW/GLAD etc
1 project | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 8 May 2021
You might give rbfx a try. It's a fork of Urho3D which is also good, though aging. While they do verge into engine territory, they're not editor-based as Unity and Godot are, and in fact the editors for each are quite rudimentary and unfinished. For a programming-centric workflow, they're pretty nice.

What would be most beneficial to learn to get back up to speed?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/GraphicsProgramming | 27 Dec 2021
Perhaps not quite what you're looking for, but I've had a reasonably good experience with bgfx. It's basically 1 level of abstraction above specific graphics APIs (GL, DirectX, etc). It is not a full game engine, just a rendering API.
BGFX DirectX11 "Failed to create vertex shader" over Windows 10x64, but works fine under Win7x86 with d3d9.

Im using this lib for getting renderer API, on pretty old PC with win7x86 works pretty fine, but when Im trying to start it on Windows 10x64 with DirectX11(software) on DirectX10(hardware) it says the next thing:2 projects | reddit.com/r/GraphicsProgramming | 22 Nov 2021

If we're going to list graphics libraries then bgfx and irrlicht are probably worth a mention as well.

Porting a game to android
2 projects | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 1 Aug 2021
This new Android game kit is a step in the right direction because now you have less JNI/NDK stuff to deal with, BUT it locks you into the Google ecosystem even more. I would not recommend. Most PC game ported to mobile/other platform use SDL2 to manage the audio/input/file access cross platform. And then use something like bgfx or angle for the rendering back end.
