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.
Elm: a good frontend language?

Clojure/ClojureScript for web - where to start?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/Clojure | 9 Aug 2022
If you want to combine functional programming with the web i'd consider Elm which seems to have a fairly decent documentation and a good official guide.
A message to Evan. People are just in love with your language.
2 projects | reddit.com/r/elm | 8 Aug 2022
Well, but the website tries to encourage you to use Elm. The guide explicitly asks you to "give Elm a shot and see what you think". So it seems to me that Evan does want Elm to be popular.
Other languages geared towards outputting HTML, like PHP?

Ask HN: Best language/framework to develop web-based text games today?
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Aug 2022
I really like Elm  and write all my side projects in it. There are many reasons I like it, but the one that probably plays best around here is that it feels like a very learn-it-for-life type language. It has a release cadence measured in years (the latest version, 0.19.10, was released in October 2019!), and a community that has adapted to match. Elm doesn't release shiny new features often, or even necessarily ever again, but it has everything I need to make every web game I could possibly think of already so that's a good thing.
Whats the most mature type generation tool for Rust types to other languages?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 1 Aug 2022
As for other languages, I wrote one for Elm (https://elm-lang.org/) inspired by ts-rs: https://crates.io/crates/elm_rs

negative numbers not being allowed in pattern matches ... prevents me from shooting myself in the foot
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Jul 2022
Pretty much. I keep asking people "Why not Elm?" ( https://elm-lang.org/ ) but no one has a very good answer.
The weird thing to me is that the two main customers or consumers of front-end programming (publishers and users) never see and do not care about the underlying language or implementation! Businesses and other orgs (schools, NGOs, etc.) as well as individuals (FB users, WordPress blogs, etc.) never see under the hood (except when something goes wrong or they deliberately click "View Source", eh?)
"Change my mind?"
[AskJS] best language to start with?
What's the current status with packages/libraries on Idris?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/Idris | 28 Nov 2021
So apparently there's a package manager called Inigo, but there are only a few packages in it. There's an idris-hackers group on github, that's linked from the idris-lang.org page. None of those libraries appear in Inigo though. So seems that Inigo isn't really a thing people are using.
Optimizing Unary Arithmetic in my language

Here's Idris' Nat optimisations
How does Idris optimize representation and operations for Nat-like types.

Record dot syntax has been merged
8 projects | reddit.com/r/haskell | 10 Mar 2021
As of 2013, Idris does not want to even support user defined Unicode operators, for the usual reasons.
What are some alternatives?
rescript-compiler - The compiler for ReScript.
reflex - Interactive programs without callbacks or side-effects. Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) uses composable events and time-varying values to describe interactive systems as pure functions. Just like other pure functional code, functional reactive code is easier to get right on the first try, maintain, and reuse.
yew - Rust / Wasm framework for building client web apps
haskelm - Haskell to Elm translation using Template Haskell. Contains both a library and executable.
Tailwind CSS - A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.
iced - A cross-platform GUI library for Rust, inspired by Elm
re-frame - A ClojureScript framework for building user interfaces, leveraging React
language-thrift - Haskell parser for the Thrift IDL format.
