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.
PlaintDB Serves - another milestone reached
6 projects | dev.to | 14 Apr 2021
For today, I've chosen to use my best guess as to the best type of blocking wrapper for each type of operation, but the long-term goal is utilizing a new async executor that Daxpedda is working on. It's compatible with tokio, but it already has a concept named block_on_blocking, which is an optimized version of blocking designed to more fairly block without needing to adopt a 'static lifetime requirement due to using spawn_blocking. He's about to resume working on the executor, but he was responsible for the QUIC-based networking stack PliantDB is using and is wrapping up a few last requests before moving on.

Oxy is Cloudflare's Rust-based next generation proxy framework
5 projects | /r/rust | 2 Mar 2023
Even though Oxy is a proprietary project, we try to give back some love to the open-source community without which the project wouldn’t be possible by open-sourcing some of the building blocks such as https://github.com/cloudflare/boring and https://github.com/cloudflare/quiche.
How Rust and Wasm power Cloudflare's 22.214.171.124
3 projects | /r/rust | 28 Feb 2023
They’ve been on the Rust train since at least 2019. Just look at projects like quiche, wrangler, and boringtun
What is a CDN? How do CDNs work?

It's more like Cloudflare forked nginx a long time ago, and is meanwhile in the very slow (like, decade-long) process of replacing it entirely.
The Cloudflare Workers Runtime, for instance, is built directly around V8; it does not use nginx or any other existing web server stack. Many new features of Cloudflare are in turn built on Workers, and much of the old stack build on nginx is gradually being migrated to Workers. https://workers.dev https://github.com/cloudflare/workerd
In another part of the stack, there is Pingora, another built-from-scratch web server focused on high-performance proxying and caching: https://blog.cloudflare.com/how-we-built-pingora-the-proxy-t...
Even when using nginx, Cloudflare has rewritten or added big chunks of code, such as implementing HTTP/3: https://github.com/cloudflare/quiche And of course there is a ton of business logic written in Lua on top of that nginx base.
Though arguably, Cloudflare's biggest piece of magic is the layer 3 network. It's so magical that people don't even think about it, it just works. Seamlessly balancing traffic across hundreds of locations without even varying IP addresses is, well, not easy.
I could go on... automatic SSL provisioning? DDoS protection? etc. These aren't nginx features.
So while Cloudflare may have gotten started being more-or-less nginx-as-a-service I don't think you can really call it that anymore.
(I'm the tech lead for Cloudflare Workers.)

Is it better to learn web development with Python or C?

Ask Cloudflare why they use HTTP/3 and QUIC https://github.com/cloudflare/quiche.
Any rust implementations of WebTransport ?
4 projects | /r/rust | 4 May 2022
Neqo (Mozilla) and Quiche (Cloudflare) both implement QUIC and HTTP/3. I believe they are both developing an implementation of WebTransport.
