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.
Node.js 20 is now available

Not sure why this is downvoted, Fastify is quite popular and the 'generator for everything' approach of Koa didn't really take off.
Architect serverless (https://arc.codes) is pretty good for serverless.
⚡️Serverless Frameworks for 2023
8 projects | dev.to | 22 Jan 2023
Architect is a heavily opinionated framework for building FWA's, Functional Web Apps. It uses AWS SAM under the hood but provides a layer on top with simplified abstractions that lets developers define and use AWS infrastructure without necessarily knowing what service is backing their "events" construct.
What’s your favorite backend framework and why?

Managed Server for NodeJS?
2 projects | /r/node | 6 May 2022
I work for vercel but I highly recommend a host like us because we make it a lot easier to manage a lambda environment and being a lot more to the table (cdn, edge functions, etc). If you want to go your own I really like architect https://arc.codes too. It really depends on your traffic and application patterns but cold starts can be virtually nil.
I made a "game" to find words that are not repos on NPM, yet. It's harder than you think and surprisingly addictive.

Tools for testing Functional Web Apps

For us at Begin and Architect, tape has been in use for several years. tape has a stable and straightforward API, routine maintenance updates, and outputs TAP, making it really versatile. While TAP is legible, it's not the most human-readable format. Fortunately, several TAP reporters can help display results for developers. Until recently, Begin's TAP reporter of choice was tap-spec. Sadly tap-spec wasn't kept up to date and npm began reporting vulnerabilities.
Shopify Webhooks with Begin

Architect will help set up various HTTP routes (API Gateway endpoints backed by Lambda functions) to handle incoming webhook data.2 projects | dev.to | 30 Nov 2021
Instead, let’s leverage the power and scale of AWS with the ease of Architect and Begin. Without managing AWS projects, IAM roles, or connecting EventBridge to a series of Lambdas.
Ask HN: Which Stack for Prototyping?
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 18 Apr 2021
I would start with separating the frontend and backend, as some others have suggested. I would probably use react but could try svelte or vue also. In the start you can mock the backend or have a memory-kept version of it.
For backend (the api) I would go for c# or nodejs (maybe with nextjs). I might combine this with a serverless solution like Architect.
Java 21 Released

I think these days Clojure is a nicer way to easy into the Java ecosystem, because you can explore existing Java libraries interactively.
Here is a nice demonstration of what can you expect, if you want to build a web app:
Also, if you learn Clojure, you get a lot more benefits.

Ask HN: What are some well-designed websites?
12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Sep 2023
Aah, that's always a controversial question, on one hand, some universal rules of usability do exist, but on the other hand, everyone's habits, taste and use cases are very different.
The most neutral definition of a "well designed" website, without any further context, could be "created in a way that helps users achieve intended goals efficiently, while keeping max number of users happy about its look".
Again, different audiences will have very different answers. Here at HN, sites like https://www.mcmaster.com/ and https://www.craigslist.org win – because HN users appreciate old look and how efficient these sites are.
https://www.apple.com/ is an industry standard of a marketing site for consumer tech. It's not universally "well designed".
Is https://github.com/ well designed? As an amateur developers, I'd say yes.
Is https://htmx.org/ well designed? Hmm, at a glance, there's no design at all. Is no design also design? That's a rabbit hole.
P.S. I often hear my website is well-designed :-)

Htmx is part of the GitHub Accelerator

there is no reason that they can't tweak their services to be more hypermedia friendly if and when this approach becomes more popular
netlify (which offers free hosting for https://htmx.org, so is a sponsor of the project) is very HTML/hypermedia friendly as far as I can tell, and I don't have enough experience w/ vercel to say much other than a vague sense that they are extremely react-oriented
no reason that can't change as the market changes though: hypermedia pushes the main value locus of applications back on the server side and so server-side companies should like that

Even if we now prefer using HTMX (https://htmx.org) and server-side rendering (Hiccup way of manipulating HTML is just amazing, https://github.com/weavejester/hiccup).
