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.

Another one to consider is https://www.django-unicorn.com if you want that LiveView feeling for Django.
For my latest project, I've opted for https://unpoly.com instead of Alipine+htmx as Unpoly allows me to write 100% server-side code and sprinkle some progressive enhancement where desirable. As a result, I can offer a no-JS experience (minus the Stripe Checkout) for those who may want/need it. Additionally, it forces me to focus solely on the server-side, and I write more idiomatic Django code as a result.
Should I ditch using Django

As an additional advice, I would check the Django subreddit and ask what are they doing for their front-end needs (e.g. check this one) -> you don't have to use JS for front-end (e.g. check htmx, unicorn, etc).
Does nyone else think Django is better off with it's own template rendering than with other frontends like Vue, React etc?

In a recent project of mine, I wanted to implement few dynamic components, and i really didn't wanted to have a rest arch for this project as i didn't see any strong need for that, In such cases I think something like django unicorn is a really strong contender, as it avoids the pain of writing a separate base for frontend as well as code duplication and redundancy in writing ajax's and templates.

Building a Micro Business: The Beginning

At the beginning of the pandemic I was pretty restless and bored, so I started working on a fullstack framework for Django named Unicorn (read more details in the Django Unicorn series). After putting in a ton of work building out the functionality, writing documentation, creating example code, and recording screenshares I enabled GitHub Sponsors on a lark.

Best Practices for Frontend Dev?

htmx is a library that brings interactivity to HTML through the use of attributes and HTTP headers. Whereas projects like Vue, Angular, and React prescribe completely different programming paradigms than traditional web development, htmx provides partial-page-swapping and progressive enhancement within straight HTML. This brings a lot of the benefits of the SPA architecture to vanilla HTML, without requiring a completely different paradigm than the one we have used on the web for 30 years. In practice, this greatly reduces the complexity required to produce an interactive web application.

HATEOAS: An Alternative Explaination
I agree entirely with you and I don't regard it as unfortunate at all that this article shows that HATEOAS is unsuitable for JSON HTTP APIs.
It is extremely suitable, and, in fact, is simply descriptive, of an HTML-based API, however.
A lot of my thinking around this comes from my work on htmx, a tool that turns HTML into a richer hypermedia:
And I am actively encouraging people to try to split their thinking about JSON Data APIs (RPC) and REST-ful HTML-based systems.
The success of the web argues that the hypermedia approach is a good choice for a large set of systems.
The problem today is that hypermedia development has been stuck in the late-90's/early-00's which, when contrasted with JSON/RPC-based development, is really showing its age, particularly in terms of UX.
https://htmx.org is an attempt to rectify that situation and get hypermedia-style development back in the game as a viable, modern network architecture for more than just content-oriented web sites.
Yes, I agree entirely. The crux of the issue is that HTML has stalled as a hypermedia for a few decades now, but I am trying to fix that with htmx:
htmx is the result of my research :)

> What are its cons?
Is very pragmatic. That means your whole investment in the arcane ways of JS are dust. Not hipster at all.
More seriously, Is of little issues here. You setup and it works, so is not something that lead to "generate content" like other setups.
I found only a significant issue (to me) (https://github.com/bigskysoftware/htmx/issues/596) but then I do something that have never done in long time with a JS library: I poke into the source and fix it myself.
