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.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning Hamsters yet.

Friction-less scala - Tell us what is causing friction in your day-to-day life with Scala
14 projects | /r/scala | 10 Aug 2021
The Cats ecosystem offers mature named abstractions providing algebraic laws virtually identical to those offered by Haskell and PureScript and that have stood the test of time, at the cost of relying on a "design pattern" approach to implementation you have to squint a bit to see ("typeclasses" based on higher-kinded types and implicit arguments) and that sometimes doesn't play nicely with Scala's colored local type inference. The selling point of this, coupled with parametricity ("tagless-final style"), is the ability to reason algebraically about your code.
What are some alternatives?
cats - Lightweight, modular, and extensible library for functional programming.
Ammonite-Ops - Scala Scripting
scribe - The fastest logging library in the world. Built from scratch in Scala and programmatically configurable.
Freestyle - A cohesive & pragmatic framework of FP centric Scala libraries
Quicklens - Modify deeply nested case class fields
Shapeless - Generic programming for Scala
LArray - Large off-heap arrays and mmap files for Scala and Java
refined - Refinement types for Scala
enableIf.scala - A library that toggles Scala code at compile-time, like #if in C/C++
Each - A macro library that converts native imperative syntax to scalaz's monadic expressions
Records for Scala - Labeled records for Scala based on structural refinement types and macros.
