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.
How is Volta different from fnm?
* FNM: https://fnm.vercel.app/
I started with NVM, which is so slow that I'm confused (and maybe even impressed) as to how it's possible to be so slow.
Then I switched to FNM, which is delightfully not-slow.
Then I switched to Volta, because it supports installing standalone "tools" other than just Node, like Yarn and the various LSP servers that I use.
I tried N but don't use it. It seems to have a more "interactive" UI than FNM or Volta, so use N if you like that kind of thing.
I asked #node.js on libera, and they put me `fnm` , after being finally being fed up with how slow `nvm` was--haven't noticed any differences other than now things have been really fast.

Author here. A few other Rust projects to note that I didn't mention in the original post I've since found:
- Boa (JS engine in Rust) – https://github.com/boa-dev/boa
- RSLint (JS/TS linter in Rust) – https://github.com/rslint/rslint
- Node version manager in Rust – https://github.com/Schniz/fnm
If you know of any other popular ones, let me know. I'm keeping a list :)

snm v0.7.0: A completely revamped node version manager
I've been using fnm for a good while now. Also written in Rust, also cross-platform, also super fast. I've been pretty happy with it. I've never tried snm - are there any particular benefits?

A little bit of background, snm aka Smol Node Manager is a node version manager and also my first rust project which I started to learn rust. From the early days, It was similar to fnm (another node version manager) from which I borrowed most of the code but with some new subcommands and features ie. reading version from package.json. But, now I can say that It is completely a new program.

To be successful in this tutorial, you should have Node.js installed on your machine. These days, I recommend using either nvm or fnm to manage Node.js versions.

Alternatively, you can use n to manage your Node versions. Use the following command to install the version of Node specified in the .nvmrc file:

Understanding How Rbenv, RubyGems And Bundler Work Together

A version manager is a tool used to manage and easily switch between versions of our interpreter (in this case, Ruby) and specify the location to find respective gems for our project. Version managers are largely language agnostic tools, and various languages have their respective implementations, such as Nvm, n for Node.js, pyenv for Python, and Rbenv, rvm, and chruby for Ruby. Now, let's take rbenv for a spin, shall we?

I've found n  by TJ Holowaychuk to be vastly simpler and easier to deal with than nvm because n just swaps out binaries instead of using shell tricks and indirection.

I just did this a couple days ago, this was almost my exact process, but instead of nvm I use n (check it out! https://github.com/tj/n). I would suggest installing gcm core along with the newer version of git as well.
