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 end-game yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.

In school, I worked on an introductory CS/EE class many, many moons ago, and I believed we used something like "logisim", which by then was pretty awesome - you could build simple things like adders, combine those with "macros" to bui;d ALUs and then whole simple CPUs.
Since then, the logisim project has discontinued, but it looks like there is a open source successor:
Have not tried it, but it looks promising, provided you don't want to do too complicated things (not sure if you could really model complex CPUs like a pentium with it). Also, it's pretty digital only, so I wouldn't expect Mac-Spice-like analog circuit simulation.
I was making adder circuits in games 8 years ago in an attempt to build a computer. I finally worked my way up and built a working computer!

though i'd heavily recommend first building the circuit in a logic simulator like Logisim, or Digital before trying to build it in a game for an FPGA. (Digital even allows you to export circuits as Verilog/VHDL, and as a certified lazy person, that is very useful)

Logicism Evolution also does HDL and can export directly to several common FPGA boards. https://github.com/logisim-evolution/logisim-evolution
