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.

This is pretty depressing. I'm pretty involved in the ricing side of the Windows ecosystem and there is a lot of work going on in this space to allow users to get rid of the start bar entirely and replace it with something more functional. I would love for the day when there could just be a user friendly drop-in replacement.

Tiling window management with komorebi and AutoHotKey
AutoHotkey v2 Official Release Announcement

I don't think it's quite that simple with this use case, but I'm happy to be proven wrong!17 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Jan 2023
I ended up using AHK for komorebi because I was still new to Windows when I start writing it and I didn't wanna have to write a tiling window manager AND a hotkey daemon. I even ended up generating a nice little AHK library to wrap around CLI commands that sent socket messages to the window manager to make it easier to write a configuration.
Ultimately the syntax changes make it impossible to fully reproduce the same library for AHKv2, which is being installed by default on all mainstream package managers now.
I ended up biting the bullet and making my own hotkey daemon for use with komorebi based on skhd and I haven't looked back since. This will be the "blessed" hotkey daemon recommended for use in the next release of komorebi.
I'm still using AHK (v1) for the stuff that it's good at (and there is a lot of stuff that it's good at!), but ultimately I've found that it's not the right tool as a hotkey daemon for a socket-based tiling window manager.

I don't buy the fact that it's smoother. I think it really depends on what you are using. I have used bspwm, awesome and even i3 and have enjoyed most of them. I use yabai on macOS and I can see there are actually tiling window mangers for Windows https://github.com/LGUG2Z/komorebi but at that point I'm spending too much time making Windows feel like Linux and I should just use Linux instead.
whkd: A simple hotkey daemon for Windows

I'm the maintainer of a tiling window manager written in Rust which has been shared here before, and until recently I was happy enough using AHK to handle key bindings for all my twm actions since it was easy enough to generate an AHK wrapper library for the clap CLI using Rust.

windows tiling: komorebi
AutoHotKey V2 (Breaking Upgrade)
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Jan 2023
This is a bit of a PITA for me as most people use AHK to handle shortcuts for komorebi, which led to me generating an AHK library to help people write their configs. Turns out every single line of that generated library (not to mention the entire sample config for newcomers) is now invalid syntax in v2.
I'm taking a month off from development while I'm traveling, maybe I'll feel less salty about this when I get back.
The biggest issue right now is that the Run and RunWait commands require strings for the commands to be executed, and AHK v2 has absolutely garbage support for string interpolation.
Honestly I'm not sure if I'll continue supporting AHK or just develop my own sxhkd (swhkd?) and recommend that for users going forward.
