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.
[ANN] GHCup-0.1.19.0 released
4 projects | reddit.com/r/haskell | 13 Jan 2023
This is the first release that was executed via the new GitHub CI. Everything went smoothly, except for an unexpected packaging bug on windows due to text-2.0 linking against libstdc++ by default.
Limits of possible performance improvements of Haskell/GHC code?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/haskell | 13 Nov 2022
In addition to what's mentioned, the "default" libraries people use are often not the best-performing ones. E.g. Data.Vector.Hashtables is often much faster than Data.HashMap.Strict (which again is typically faster than Data.Map). And we find performance papercuts in common libraries that may simply be due to not enough people optimising for speed.
What is the idiomatic way to test "hidden" module functions in a Cabal project
2 projects | reddit.com/r/haskell | 14 Oct 2022
Used by nearly every Haskell project: https://hackage.haskell.org/package/text 60% of the modules are ".Internal".

Switch internal representation to UTF8 by Bodigrim · Pull Request #365 · haskell/text
2 projects | reddit.com/r/haskell | 22 Aug 2021
Here is a representative patch for text: https://github.com/haskell/text/pull/365/commits/37a2157245457a287d638bbceb472fe93b71f224 Hopefully it clarifies why achieving C performance is problematic even if you have enough primitive operations.2 projects | reddit.com/r/haskell | 22 Aug 2021

u/snoyberg laments here that a consequence of Text using unpinned memory is that the FFI can't operate directly on it. However, there do appear to be some places where foreign imported functions are called on the underlying unpinned ByteArray# (see how Text.copy calls this).
[ANN] unicode-collation 0.1
3 projects | reddit.com/r/haskell | 17 Apr 2021
Until now, the only way to do proper Unicode sorting in Haskell was to depend on text-icu, which wraps the C library icu4c. However, there are disadvantages to depending on an external C library. In addition, the last release of text-icu was in 2015, and since then there have been changes to icu4c that cause build-failures, as noted in this issue.
