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.

[ANN] servant-benchmark v0.1.1.1
3 projects | reddit.com/r/haskell | 27 Apr 2021
I've recently published servant-benchmark, a small library that produces request files from Servant APIs to be used by external benchmarking tools. It currently supports exports for wrk, siege, and drill.
Is the FSF Fighting the Previous War?
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Oct 2022
I have to agree. I saw FSF members argue with uutils coreutils  developers about having their project licensed under MIT. And for no good reason, they started attacking the project and the people behind it.
I was a big fan of FSF until that point.

I think my love for Linux is preventing me from learning to code
2 projects | reddit.com/r/linux | 8 Aug 2022
If you like systems-y stuff, Rust is delightful, and offers plenty of opportunities to dig deep. My advice if you want to understand systems programming, but the O'Reilly Rust book, buy/read online the Rust PL, and go implement a Unix utility in Rust. Or implement a feature for one. See: uutils.
Why Rust ?
7 projects | reddit.com/r/neovim | 31 Jul 2022
For example: https://github.com/uutils/coreutils doesn't really bring anything new to the table. Ripgrep has a plethora of improvements rather than being a 1 to 1 clone of grep, same with exa and ls
Building a Rust Mentality

> Maybe rust devs could end wishing that things were written in rust and start writing things in rust
They are, though. Like, I don't even disagree with the cost of rewriting, but there are very much active efforts to rewrite things in rust (ex. coreutils - https://github.com/uutils/coreutils , OS - https://www.redox-os.org/ ) or to add rust to existing projects (Linux, Firefox and Chrome both (https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/refs/heads/...)).

When did it get decent?

Well the Rust version of the GNU Coreutils is cross-platform, so technically you can make use of them on Windows too.
Packaging for Fedora
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Fedora | 3 Jul 2022
I want to try out the Rust coreutils, and since they aren't yet packaged for Fedora, this also seems like the perfect opportunity to get some practice packaging, mostly for my own curiosity but I may end up trying to get it on COPR or even the Fedora repos if everything goes well enough. I've spent most of my morning at work reading through documentation on packaging RPM's, and I'm left with a couple of "best practices" questions:
What are some alternatives?
exa - A modern replacement for ‘ls’.
watchexec - Executes commands in response to file modifications
tokei - Count your code, quickly.
habitat - Modern applications with built-in automation
parity-bitcoin - The Parity Bitcoin client
woodpecker - Drill is an HTTP load testing application written in Rust
rust - Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.
skim - Fuzzy Finder in rust!
ripgrep - ripgrep recursively searches directories for a regex pattern while respecting your gitignore
PumpkinDB - Immutable Ordered Key-Value Database Engine
rust - Rust language bindings for TensorFlow
