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.
Ask HN: Why do I have this weird feeling that noone working at FB posts on HN?

Alternatively, news about FB is overwhelmingly negative, possibly because they actually are that bad.
If you go down the to stories: https://hn.algolia.com/?q=facebook
it's virtually all either FB doing something unethical or someone taking action against FB (because they're unethical).
Germany announces nationwide lockdown for the unvaccinated
It always feels like the mods are against you, but we ban accounts that do ideological flamewar from the other side in just the same way, and they feel like we're just as biased against them. They agree that I'm a terrible human being though.
Would you please stop posting ideological battle comments and flamewar comments to HN? You've been doing it a lot, and we ban that sort of account. I don't want to ban you, because you've also posted about other things, but you're on the wrong side of the line right now (see https://hn.algolia.com/?sort=byDate&dateRange=all&type=comme... for what I mean by that). Please review https://news.ycombinator.com/newsguidelines.html and fix this.
“RISC V is a terrible architecture”
Flamewars are definitely not expected - they're against the rules and something we try to dampen in every way we know.

As TobTobXX said, one option is always to post the link and then add a comment explaining what you think is important or interesting.
If you want to say what you think is important about an article, that's fine, but do it by adding a comment to the thread. Then your view will be on a level playing field with everyone else's: https://hn.algolia.com/?dateRange=all&page=0&prefix=false&so...
Most universal way to get web article text?

The most underused browser feature
Any developers who'd like to contribute to improving how article content is extracted from web pages should check out Mozilla's Readability repository: https://github.com/mozilla/readability
I'm currently trying to bring the PHP port up to speed here: https://github.com/fivefilters/readability.php
We use currently use an older version as part of our article extraction for Push to Kindle: https://www.fivefilters.org/push-to-kindle/
I gotta go back and figure out if I can submit a PR to fix footnotes, though . I don't like using Reader Mode when I know there might be stuff missing, so I itch to go and check.
I've just poked through both the GetPocket site (https://getpocket.com/publisher/) and Mozilla's Readability Library GitHub page (https://github.com/mozilla/readability) without seeing obvious guidelines.
My general suspicion is that adhering to a simple HTML5 documemnt structure, and possible use of microformats (https://microformats.io/) goes a long way.

I think this comes close to what is used to extract text from an HTML document. Fetching can be done via any HTTP client. Will need jsdom to convert the text to DOM before feeding it to readability.
A Unix-style personal search engine and web crawler for your digital footprint
13 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 26 Jul 2021
Looks very much like one of the ideas I've been thinking of building! The way I planned to do it was to use a similar approach to rga for files ( https://github.com/phiresky/ripgrep-all ) and having a webextension to pull all webpages I vist (filtered via something like https://github.com/mozilla/readability ), dump that into either sqlite with FTS5 or postgres with FTS for search.
A good search engine for "my stuff" and "stuff I've seen before" is not available for most people in my experience.
Two things I'd mention are:
1. Digital footprint usually means your info on other sites, not just things I've accessed. If I read a blog that is not part of my footprint, but if I leave a comment on that blog that comment is part of it. The term is also mostly used in a tracking and negative context (although there are exceptions), so you might want to change that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_footprint
2. I don't really get what makes it UNIX-style (or what exactly you mean by that? There seems to be many definitions), and the readme does not seem to clarify much besides expecting me to notice it by myself.

A 4 minute introduction to RSS
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Jul 2021
If you're trying to build one yourself, have a look at the open source Readability code. It was originally developed by Arc90 and is now used by Apple and Mozilla in their browser reader views. The code has been ported to a number of different languages.
I work on a service called Full-Text RSS that used a PHP port of Readability, coupled with site-specific extraction rules to identify and extract article content from each feed item. It then produces a full-text version of the given feed. The idea is you subscribe to the full-text version in whichever feed reader you use and it will transparently give you full-text articles where you had partial content before.
Where do I find the full list of sites supported by Speedreader?

It doesn't use a pre-defined list, it uses Mozilla's Readability library.
