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.
Wireguard PTP and/or Mesh Generator (pipe-builder-3000 !
3 projects | /r/WireGuard | 21 Jul 2022
I posted this 10 months ago, meanwhile, I did a lot of changes, currently I am running a immense network with 34 machines using that software as VPN accelerator. https://github.com/Ne00n/pipe-builder-3000/ Maybe this is helpful to someone, I needed a app that creates multiple point to point connections, but it can be also used to setup a wireguard mesh. On top, I do run bird2, with OSPF so everything becomes reachable, also have a script for that: Latency optimizer is included, means it does messure the latency of all links and weights them so bird routes with the lowest weighted Link. There is a Python3 script included to do this automatically every 5 minutes from each node. https://github.com/Ne00n/bird-spawner-3000 If you wanna optimize your network routing, you can use this: https://github.com/Ne00n/route-bender-4000 It does help me to play Youtube and Reddit without buffers and drops latency.
Find Alternatives for Ourselves Megathread

We need a highly distributed alternative to Reddit that is beyond the ability of anyone to control and manipulate. Let our devices do the lifting whenever possible, somehow.

Alternate networks (not internet, anonymous mixnets, etc)
2 projects | /r/SimpleXChat | 9 Mar 2023
One neat thing I've figured about SimpleX's relay/proxy model (and also Nostr's) is that, since servers don't connect to each other, you can more easily run it on alternative networks such as https://reticulum.network. No bridging is necessary.
What would you rewrite in Rust?

Reticulum Network Stack (https://github.com/markqvist/Reticulum) - Basically a new kind of network stack that doesn't rely on IP. It works over LoRa, Ethernet & even packet radios.
RNode is a free and open source "self-replicating" long-range radio for digital communications. Every device made contains all the blueprints, software and info needed to make more, along with basic software for setting up self-configuring, encrypted mesh networks for basic human communications.
If you use it with any of the software I have released that supports it, everything be completely encrypted, since all of that is built on Reticulum, instead of TCP/IP. More on that in a bit.
This on-board repository also contains all the software, guides and information needed to set up emergency (or permanent) wireless mesh-networks for basic communications using the Reticulum mesh networking system, with programs like Sideband or Nomad Network.
Yes. An app like Sideband provides basic text comms, but anything is really possible, since it provides a full networking layer through Reticulum. It's also pretty easy for other developers to write their own programs, apps and services that can run over the network.
You can then use the Reticulum protocol on top of that, which is designed to allow fully functional, encrypted and self-configuring mesh networks, even over extremely slow mediums. Everything else, that is actually useful for general purpose comms, fails at less than a few kilobits per second.
You could think of it as a really long range WiFi card for your phone, computer or other devices. It's much slower, but has range in the kilometers instead of 50 meters. It does not use the typical WiFi+IP+TCP stack that most things use these days (which makes them fail as soon as centralised infrastructure fails), but a networking protocol called Reticulum, which was designed to work even when everything else fails.
What are some alternatives?
direwolf - Dire Wolf is a software "soundcard" AX.25 packet modem/TNC and APRS encoder/decoder. It can be used stand-alone to observe APRS traffic, as a tracker, digipeater, APRStt gateway, or Internet Gateway (IGate).
