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.
generic purpose library in rust

You can also mix them a bit. The library tungstenite is implemented like this, and allows async-tungstenite to reuse the same logic but in a non-blocking manner. You have the API of the second option, but if a write call returns WouldBlock, you return to the caller and allow them to continue when the buffer is flushed. This can get complicated saving state though (e.g. whether it's currently doing authentication, uploading a file, etc.), but see my note below about Rust's async/await.

async-std: Basically a Tokio alternative with a few different design decisions.
Why asynchronous Rust doesn't work
3 projects | reddit.com/r/programming | 13 Nov 2021
Go's solution is for the scheduler to notice after a while when a goroutine has blocked execution and to shift goroutines waiting their turn to another thread. async-std pondered a similar approach with tasks, but it proved controversial and was never merged.
Building static Rust binaries for Linux

This indicates curl, zlib, openssl, and libnghttp2 as well as a bunch of WASM-related things are being dynamically linked into my executable. To resolve this, I looked at the build features exposed by surf and found that it selects the "curl_client" feature by default, which can be turned off and replaced with "h1-client-rustls" which uses an HTTP client backed by rustls and async-std and no dynamically linked libraries. Enabling this build feature removed all -sys dependencies from androidx-release-watcher, allowing me to build static executables of it.
Rust async is colored, and that’s not a big deal

And also, the actual PR never got merged.4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 14 Mar 2021
Many people believe that based on the blog post about it, but the PR was actually never merged, and the approach was abandoned due to various issues.
Rust's async isn't f#@king colored!

Async in rust needs a runtime (aka executor) to run. You can maybe get a better description from the rust docs. As an example, Tokio attempts to provide an interface for a developer that is minimal change to the more common blocking code. So you'd end up putting #[tokio::main] above your main function to spin up the executor and most of the rest of the code is similar to a non-async version with a few sprinkles of .await, which you can see in the hello world for tokio. In contrast, async-std provides a more hands-on/low-level approach. If you are unlucky enough to have libraries that choose different stacks to work on, you'll possibly (probably?) have to handle both.
Comparison of Rust async and Linux thread context switch time and memory use

Nothing so fancy.
Each worker thread runs in a loop executing a queue of jobs. On every iteration it sets an atomic progress flag to true.
The runtime in which it's contained polls its workers every 1-10ms, atomically swapping in false and checking to see if the previous value was also false - if so, it steals its task queue and spins up another worker to execute it.
What is the best way to ask for user input while simultaneously outputting to the console?

async-std uses blocking I/O on a background thread. tokio does the same for its equivalent API.

Looking at https://github.com/async-rs/async-std/pull/915/, it seems the deprecated APIs were hidden behind a feature flag called unstable which is understood to not guarantee such backwards compatibility.2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 15 Jan 2021
