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.
Monkey-patching in Java
2 projects | dev.to | 21 Sep 2023
As seen above, the API exposes the user to low-level bytecode manipulation via byte arrays. It would be unwieldy to do it directly. Hence, real-life projects rely on bytecode manipulation libraries. ASM has been the traditional library for this, but it seems that Byte Buddy has superseded it. Note that Byte Buddy uses ASM but provides a higher-level abstraction.
Any news on the Classfile API?

Just a drive-by comment: ByteBuddy is worth a look https://bytebuddy.net/. It is built on top of ASM.

> can you show an example of how you'd parse, say, a .java.in
The canonical way to do such a thing is through the java annotation processing api  and using a tool like java poet . Before you did that, you'd probably decide if you wanted to instead use bytecode generation with a library like bytebuddy 
But, assuming for some reason, you wanted to torture yourself and actually consume a java.in file and apply a regex, then you'd probably pull out the "maven-replacer-plugin"  and configure that for the task at hand. (or use your favorite templating language plugin. There's a million of them).
Though, to be fair, this really isn't something that comes up in regular java programming due to the nature of the ecosystem. Anything you'd want to codegen likely already has a library and anything you didn't would receive (legitimate) push back.
is rust the only language to have procedural macros?

Have a look at byte buddy.
Byte Buddy on Android made possible
5 projects | /r/android_devs | 28 Mar 2021
If you've ever used libraries like https://github.com/JakeWharton/hugo or https://hibernate.org/ (if you've ever done some backend development) and wondered how do they seem to add some code/logic into your app just by adding some annotation to some method, or if you ever wondered how mocking frameworks like Mockito can change a class behavior for example, then most likely you're interested in a programming technique that allows to modify existing code, usually known as Aspect oriented programming (also known in Java as Bytecode instrumentation) which, even though it might sound intimidating at first, some really cool tools such as Byte Buddy or AspectJ make it quite easy to accomplish.

Do yout stil use Android Timber lib?
2 projects | /r/androiddev | 18 Jul 2022
Do you still use the Android Timber lib? The only real pro I see is that you don't need to declare the Tag, other than that that "pro" where each call checks if debug or not I wonder why you would like to have that, I mean what I want is all debug-only logs to get stripped out from the code, and instead of calling if(BuildConfig.Debug) on each Timer.xy() call why not create an extra Application class under the debug folder where logs are activated? Just trying to figure out of this lib that actually started like 9 years ago is still needed or not really anymore. https://github.com/JakeWharton/timber
