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.

A bit off-topic but if you're looking for an up-to-date maintained library to shell out in Clojure, take a look at process
ClojureRS – Clojure interpreter implemented in Rust

Nothing prevents you from using babashka and still use it as a glue for Unix programs. The difference is you get a nicer language (my opinion), a REPL if you want, and also you do get access to a lot more libraries from Java and Clojure and the pod concept of you want too as well.
So to be clear, you can easily use ImageMagick, curl, jq, pup, etc. See: https://clojure.github.io/clojure/clojure.java.shell-api.htm... and https://github.com/babashka/process
Other benefits are that you only need to learn Clojure and suddenly you can use it for everything, backend apps, frontend apps, scripts, etc. You don't need to learn bash, js and Java/go, make, etc.
> Then I did a very brief search for clojure libraries, things like parsing html. Most of the github projects were not seeing much activity (like last commit in 2020)
This surprises everyone, but those libraries still work, have no bugs, are missing no features, and can be used without issues in production.
Clojure is one of the most stable language, so things never break and almost never need updating.
People have a kind of Stockholm syndrome I think coming to other languages that if something didn't need a bug fix in a year it must be abandoned and broken.
And the reason you often don't need to update those libraries to keep up with the environment, like OS versions, is because they all leverage existing runtimes under the hood like JVM and that's the one that updates. So they're all secure and kept up to date, working with new OS and new architecture for free as JVM updates. This applies to Babashka as well, because it is implemented using a JVM.
