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 hashids yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.

Probably talking about this: https://github.com/pyca/cryptography/issues/5771

OpenSSL Security Advisory [5 July 2022]
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Jul 2022
The modes of operation aren't the main reason people use OpenSSL; it's the support for all the gnarly (and less gnarly) protocols and wire formats that show up when doing applied cryptography.
Progress is being made on replacing OpenSSL in a lot of contexts (specifically, the RustCrypto folks are doing excellent work and so is cryptography), but there are still plenty of areas where OpenSSL is needed to compose the mostly algebraic cryptography with the right wire format.

2) Which cryptographic library would be recommended for this purpose? I've seen people using PyCrypto (https://github.com/pycrypto/pycrypto) which seems simple enough, but that one seems not maintained anymore. I've also seen keyring.cryptfile (https://github.com/frispete/keyrings.cryptfile) and pyca/cryptography (https://github.com/pyca/cryptography) but I'm not really sure if any of those should actually be used for my purpose?

Ah, and sorry, I forgot, I don't use any third party libs for the networking. It's all from scratch to be as efficient as possible, and usable over low-bandwidth links. I used a library for fetching network card details when using physical ethernet devices as interfaces, and I used the very well-regarde cryptography.io library for the cryptographic primitives that I use in the implementation.
Failed to install Python Cryptography package with PIP and setup.py

When I try to install the Cryptography package for Python through either pip install cryptography or by downloading the package from their site and running python setup.py, I get the following error:
Just how? Why is Java seemingly more complex?

I know you mentioned it, but for anyone who hasn't read what happened with the cryptography package when they changed the backend to rely on Rust. I take no stance on the issue, but the drama of it is a fantastic read.
