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.
Plan B for UUIDs: double AES-128
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Aug 2022
I really like ULID for this problem (e.g: https://github.com/ahawker/ulid)
- same number of bytes as UUID
- start with a date, so has great locality. Plus you get extra information in the uid that you can extract.
- can be created from an existing date or uuid, and exported to a uuid, so there is a migration path
New UUID Formats from IETF

As the author of a popular ULID implementation in python, the spec has no stewardship anymore. The specification repo has plenty of open issues and no real guidance or communication beyond language implementation authors discussing corner cases. The monotonic functionality is ambiguous (at best) and is implemented differently per-languages .
Functionality, UUIDv7 might be the _same_ but the hope would be for a more rigid specification for interoperability.
Sortable Collision-Free UUIDs

Looks similar to ULID (I am the author of a popular python implementation).
It appears to have a similar constraint that two ID's generated within the same timestamp (ms, ns) have no strong guarantee of ordering. That might not be a deal breaker depending on your use case but something to consider.

Is there a PHP library that generates all possible matches for a simple subset of regex
1 project | reddit.com/r/webdev | 22 May 2022
or you could take exrex and port it to PHP
More advanced random option?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/espanso | 22 Apr 2022
I'm able to use the python module/app exrex to do something like
What are some alternatives?
