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.
Tools for rolling your own engine

bgfx seems interesting if you aren't going to use SFML. Gets you rendering.
Are there any game engines or game frameworks that are simple to use and well documented? Anything with c++, python, kotlin, or java support will work. 2d is a must - have.
1 project | reddit.com/r/GameDevelopment | 10 May 2022
You can also check bgfx, although this is just a rendering library. (In their github they have a showcase of projects, game engines and games developed with it)
Feasibility of a GTK <-> Qt 'transpiler'?

And bgfx does it with graphics and ui.
What are the best software libraries which implement great abstractions (language agnostic)?

I know I've seen a few key graphics layer abstraction libraries, but I can't recall which ones are best, perhaps (I just saw) bgfx?
Do graphics companies ever use C or "C style C++"?

BGFX is a somewhat popular cross-platform rendering library that is written in C-style C++ (the author calls it Orthodox C++ ).

Ovaj lik ima srpsko ime, al ne znam dal je stvarno iz srbije, ima dosta veliki projekat iza sebe: https://bkaradzic.github.io/bgfx/overview.html
What would be most beneficial to learn to get back up to speed?

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

What program do I use for a physics engine?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp_questions | 28 Mar 2022
I have been using OpenSceneGraph for over 20 years. It is used in the military a lot and I myself have seen it used to simulate war scenarios with realtime data aboard of a command-and-control center of a battleship.

Current state of SimRacing in Linux (Updated to 2022-2)
9 projects | reddit.com/r/simracing | 2 Feb 2022
Speed Dreams: It is a fork of TORCS, and was born as the need to include many more functions to the latter. In Speed Dreams the menus would be completely redesigned, adding many more options and making them much more intuitive; the game acquired dynamic time, improvements in reflections, career mode, a new simulation mode and multi threading. Over time many more options were implemented, such as local multiplayer mode, Force Feedback, and of course more and better cars and tracks, a new and more powerfull graphic engine (OpenSceneGraph) among other things, making it a much more complete game than its predecessor. They recently they have presented version 2.2.3. You can also install it in AppImage and Flatpak format.

Is not little, is very complex open source racing simulator. There are a lot of cars, categories, tracks. The physics has a lot of work . About the graphics, the devs are working on change the graphic engine to OpenSceneGraph, that actually works, but needs much more polishing.

Is there a good, open source, realistic OpenGL renderer for us to use?

I love Godot for a complete game engine. For just the renderer you could consider http://www.openscenegraph.org

-Finish the implementation of the new OpenSceneGraph rendering engine: The game allows to replace the default renderer (ssggraph) with OpenSceneGraph, but it still needs to implement many features to be completed, as well as further optimisation.
