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.

Show HN: A C# library to help you enforce a Given-When-Then structured Unit test
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 29 Aug 2021
Looks like a similar concept to https://github.com/machine/machine.specifications which I used many years ago to try and achieve BDD style unit testing.
One point to note from your introduction was the following statement:
What are some alternatives?
SpecFlow - #1 .NET BDD Framework. SpecFlow automates your testing & works with your existing code. Find Bugs before they happen. Behavior Driven Development helps developers, testers, and business representatives to get a better understanding of their collaboration
Shouldly - Should testing for .NET - the way Asserting *Should* be!
xUnit - xUnit.net is a free, open source, community-focused unit testing tool for the .NET Framework.
Fluent Assertions - A very extensive set of extension methods that allow you to more naturally specify the expected outcome of a TDD or BDD-style unit tests. Targets .NET Framework 4.7, .NET Core 2.1 and 3.0, as well as .NET Standard 2.0 and 2.1. Supports the unit test frameworks MSTest2, NUnit3, XUnit2, MSpec, and NSpec3.
NUnit - NUnit 3 Framework
WireMock.Net - WireMock.Net is a flexible library for stubbing and mocking web HTTP responses using advanced request matching and response templating. Based on the functionality from http://WireMock.org, but extended with more functionality.
LightBDD - BDD framework allowing to create easy to read and maintain tests.
AutoFixture - AutoFixture is an open source library for .NET designed to minimize the 'Arrange' phase of your unit tests in order to maximize maintainability. Its primary goal is to allow developers to focus on what is being tested rather than how to setup the test scenario, by making it easier to create object graphs containing test data.
Moq - Repo for managing Moq 4.x
NFluent - Smooth your .NET TDD experience with NFluent! NFluent is an ergonomic assertion library which aims to fluent your .NET TDD experience (based on simple Check.That() assertion statements). NFluent aims your tests to be fluent to write (with a super-duper-happy 'dot' auto-completion experience), fluent to read (i.e. as close as possible to plain English expression), but also fluent to troubleshoot, in a less-error-prone way comparing to the classical .NET test frameworks. NFluent is also directly inspired by the awesome Java FEST Fluent assertion/reflection library (http://fest.easytesting.org/)
