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.
GitHub Down again 11/27/2021

> Git itself decentralizes source control, and yet we all want to use single-point-of-failure Github.
This is pretty much why both the organization that i work for, as well as i personally for my homelab use self-hosted GitLab instances: https://about.gitlab.com/
Though in practice there are a lot of other options out there, like Gitea (https://gitea.com/) and GitBucket (https://gitbucket.github.io/), though maybe less so for alternative source control systems (e.g. SVN has been all forgotten, however that's a personal pet peeve).
Not only that, but i also utilize my own Sonatype Nexus (https://www.sonatype.com/products/repository-oss?topnav=true) instances to great success: for doing everything from mirroring container images that i need from DockerHub (e.g. due to their proposed removal policies for old images and already adopted rate limits), to mirroring Maven/npm/NuGet/pip/Ruby and other dependencies, so i don't have to connect to things on the Internet whenever i want to do a new build.
That not only improves resiliency against things on the Internet going down (apart from situations where i need something new and it's not yet cached), but also improves performance a lot in practice, when only the company servers need to be hit, or my own personal servers in the data center for my cloud hosted stuff, or my own personal servers in my homelab for my own stuff.
Admittedly, all of that takes a bit of setup, especially if you happen to expose anything to the web in a zero trust fashion (permissible for my own stuff, as long as i'm okay with manually managing CVEs just to probably get hacked in the end anyways, but definitely not that any corporation with an internal network would want to do), but in my eyes that's still worth the effort, if you value being in control of your own software stack and the ecosystem around it.
It's probably much less worth it, if you don't see that as a benefit and don't want to be the one responsible for whatever project you're working on getting hacked, e.g. if you'd fail to patch out the recent GitLab CVE where exiftools could execute arbitrary code, which is probably the case if you don't have the resources to constantly throw at maintenance, in comparison to companies with 100x - 1000x more resources than you have for that sort of stuff.
How to build a search engine with Ruby on Rails

> Rails doesn't scale? Github's the largest code repository site in the world.
You know, i think i understand both of the viewpoints here. Personally, i'd say that Rails doesn't scale as well as i'd expect it to. You can definitely build scalable systems in it, though you'll end up throwing a whole bunch of hardware resources, when compared to certain other languages and technology stacks, to serve similar load.
For example, right now i self-host a GitLab (https://about.gitlab.com/) instance for managing my code repositories, CI builds and so on. Even with just me using it (alongside some automated processes), it routinely eats up close to 4 GB of RAM, which in my case is an entire VPSes worth and costs me about 60 Euros a year with Time4VPS (affiliate link, if you'd like to check it out: https://www.time4vps.com/?affid=5294) but would cost me way more in AWS, GCP etc. One could argue that that's not too expensive, but not everyone earns a lot of money and running 10-20 VPSes does eventually build up, since i can't afford colocation and my residential homelab setup with a WireGuard tunnel to bypass ISP NAT with a proxy VPS is pretty slow, even if i can afford more storage, RAM and CPU power that way.
Compare that situation to projects like Gogs (https://gogs.io/), Gitea (https://gitea.com/), GitBucket (https://gitbucket.github.io/) and sourcehut (https://sourcehut.org/) - i'd argue that all of them on average use less CPU resources and memory for accomplishing similar tasks. For example, have a look here: https://forgeperf.org/
However, we cannot ignore the fact that using Ruby might have been exactly what allowed for quickly creating the functionality of GitLab and many other platforms and tools out there, GitHub included, so the choice between usable software and innovation in the near future and performant software possibly years from now is a tricky one.
There are probably good arguments for both, but noone can declare either to be better. Personally, i don't mind using Ruby, Python or even PHP when it makes sense and i don't need to worry about scalability from day 0.
Selfhosted open source alternative to GitHub/GitLab
5 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 9 Aug 2021
I saw this on HN and have been using it for the past two weeks for some small hobby projects. The docs are so-so but I got it set up in Docker without much hassle. I've since migrated completely from gitbucket. Great software - I encourage everyone to try it out.

An open-source alternative to LaunchDarkly | Feature Flags, AB testing new features & Remote Config Service 🔥

The only one I'm aware of is Unleash
Feature Flags with Next.js and GrowthBook
3 projects | dev.to | 31 Dec 2021
GrowthBook is better known as an open source A/B testing platform, but it is also very capable at feature flagging. Other popular open source options are Unleash and FlagSmith. For paid platforms, there is LaunchDarkly and Split.io, although these can get prohibitively expensive for many teams.
