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.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning DotVVM yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.

Giraffe is a library that sits atop ASP.NET Core and allows developers to build web applications in a functional style; dotnet new giraffe is literally my starting point when I begin a new web application project. (Rather than write three more sentences filled with effusive praise, I’ll just leave it at that; it’s great.) It also provides a view engine (that builds upon Suave‘s “experimental” view engine) which uses an F# DSL to define HTML in a strongly-typed way. It has been incredibly efficient for a while, but with .NET’s work over the past two releases at improving performance, and Giraffe’s adoption of those techniques, it is lightning fast.
Show HN: F# web server in 3-4 lines of code

Wrapping ASP.NET Core to be easier and more idiomatic with F# seems to be a common domain. Out of curiosity, did you look at any existing projects? If so, what was lacking from them that made you decide to write WebFrame?8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Nov 2021
You don't have to use asp.net directly in F# - there's been a long-standing library wrapping it in a more functional aesthetic with Giraffe: https://github.com/giraffe-fsharp/Giraffe
Not to discourage you or anything - always good to see alternatives. Personally, for FP web programming, the closer to the "your server as a function" ideal the better - so I'd prefer Giraffe in this case, for things like the router being an HttpHandler instead of being a property on the app. It's just way more intuitive from an FP standpoint and produces neater, more self-contained code, IMO.
What I wish I knew when learning F#

I was thinking as a strategy that would impact the way all libraries are build. In my example I posted above, there is no dotnet code showing. Its all abstracted. Libraries should create new APIs that are just wrappers around the dotnet library.
Whereas, if you look at the examples in the Giraffe framework, you need to do a bunch of dotnet boilerplate. https://github.com/giraffe-fsharp/Giraffe#doing-it-manually

I'm looking for a web framework that's built around composability. Specifically, I'm thinking of something along the lines of the "Your Server as a Function" paradigm: good examples are OCaml's Dream, Kotlin's http4k and F#'s Giraffe. I looked this up and in an earlier post someone mentioned Actix. Apart from actix, is there any other framework like this that generally stays out of your way?

Writing high performance F# code

Giraffe for sure:
As an added bonus you'll learn a very popular tool for sticking a web interface in front of your F# app.
What the F#

The equivalent is fable .
The major difference I would say, is that you are required to use botnet alongside of node. (dotnet to compile to JS, then node to bundle with wepback or anything else)
Also, you can use the same language to build high performance backend with giraffe  (better than node). And build performant native application with fabulous .
There is an experimental typescript compilation. Which will be great, because it will make using F# less hostile in an environment where the winner takes all.
