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 Passlib yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
Themis: Strong, usable cryptography for busy people
1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 17 Feb 2022
Backstage: cryptographic R&D internship at Cossack Labs
4 projects | dev.to | 12 May 2021
Now, the real world work starts. We introduce interns to the world of popular cryptographic libraries, help them to make their first OSS contributions, and let them practice with our cryptographic library Themis which provides a high-level crypto API on 14 languages.
