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.
Would anyone be interested in hoot: A cabal wrapper for haskell based on Cargo?

Cabal has a lot of dark corners once you stray from the happy path. Just checked and I'm currently subscribed to 37 threads on the issue tracker, and I'm not a maintainer. A lot of these are related to lesser-used features like cabal scripts, environment files and doctests (though I think all of these things would used more if they were more reliable), but there's also plenty of stupid stuff like: - https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/3313 - https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/8527 - https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/8391 - https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/7789 - https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/6888 - https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/6999 - https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/5271

By the way, there are some open issues for the command to add a package in Cabal.

dr-cabal v0.2.0.0: Interactive output + critical path computation
2 projects | /r/haskell | 21 Nov 2022
At the moment, cabal-install doesn't support hpack natively but if the project can be build with cabal-install, you can run hpack manually to produce the .cabal file and utilise dr-cabal after that :)
Failure with cabal v2-test

Hm thanks for that, could try out some of those ideas. Here's the github issue i opened for this: https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/8580
Haskell adoption is higher than I expected, what can we do to get it to top 10 languages.

Would really love it if the Cabal documentation had this as its own, highly visible entry. I submitted a pull request to that end.

I think there's a misunderstanding: Most people want to use the .a file from their Linux/package distro that provides static libraries, such as Alpine Linux or nixpkgs.
Such package distributions just use the build system default options to build static libs. For example, Alpine might use `-Ddefault_library=both`.
> if they could keep that libgtk_static around
Why make these special cases instead of just using the build system defaults? That's easier to maintain and more obvious.
> I'd be interested to hear if static linking GTK even has that many benefits
One benefit is almost-infinite backwards compatibility that the Linux and Xorg ABIs provide, being able to make GUI apps that work out of the box everywhere.
Another is that these generated executables are very small, e.g. 12 MB for a full static GTK GUI app , or 6 MB when xz-compressed.
This is much less than when using shared libraries. One reason is that dead-code elimination works much better for static linking: It links in only the functions you actually use. For dynamic linking, it's always the entire .so.

GTK can be statically linked.
It lost this ability temporarily when switching to Meson, but I fixed it in GTK3 and GTK4. But I just checked and apparently it is broken again:
