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.

WASM instead of C Dependencies?
9 projects | dev.to | 14 Jan 2022
I have web applications written in Rust and Go that need some basic image processing (reading JPEGs, PNGs, writing JPEGs, WebPs, AVIFs and resizing). This is something I always struggle with, because most libraries for image processing are written in C (libpng, libwebp, mozjpeg; or higher-level ones like vips). While there are usually dependencies in each language build on top of those C dependencies, like bimg for Go, I don’t like having C dependencies in a Rust, Go or even Node.js projects.

Image Compression with Golang

For image processing, I will use the bimg library because in my opinion it has a very intuitive API and is easy to use, in addition to being very fast.
