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.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning better-files yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
Scala 3 Reflection

Scripting API is quite limited, so the third option. - reuse the ammonite scripts https://github.com/com-lihaoyi/Ammonite or look how this is implemented (using internal compiler API),

Your exposure to Functional Programming with Haskell and Clojure suggest you will certainly pick up Scala quickly. With ZIO and cats, you can write robust software quickly. Consider the excellent Coursera Scala course. Get "the Red Book" https://www.manning.com/books/functional-programming-in-scala, and most important, play. Experiment to see how things work. Get https://ammonite.io/

Or ammonite - I've ran Gatling performance test from a simple script based on this gist it fetches all the dependencies, compiles and runs the test, producing nice html report..

Scala with the Typelevel ecosystem. Stay on the jVM, but have a much more pleasant and robust experience, including a great REPL.
The Scala ecosystem and circular dependencies?

If you are installing, and you are learning, I would also recommend ammonite as an easier REPL.
IPython as a System Shell

I've been using amm on and off https://ammonite.io/#Ammonite-Shell
pretty nice if you know scala, still have to use regular shell(s) so I do not forget them

A Lisp REPL as my main shell
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 8 Feb 2021
I've never tested Ammonite, only read the https://ammonite.io/#Ammonite-Shell, so I'm only guessing here.
From what I understand, Ammonite was designed as a "readline shell" as I wrote in the article. It perpetuates this approach that everything is a command.
The thesis of my article suggests we do the opposite: I'm suggesting to rethink shells by starting from the interface (here the SLY REPL) and then implement the shell features.
In particular, it seems that Ammonite does not support back-references and I'm not sure it has an interactive inspector.
I wonder what people think about Ammonite (https://ammonite.io/)?
It's not Lisp but Scala so may not be the authors language of choice however it can be used as a Shell: https://ammonite.io/#Ammonite-Shell
I am personally using it and compared to a classical shell like Bash it's really nice for more structured data related tasks (exploring some API, checking some data, creating a bunch of PRs at once, ...).
It also makes use of Scala's adjustable syntax and functional concepts so you basically get shell piping but in a strongly typed fashion (e.g.
