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.

I work on a dependency-free, build-less library called htmx:
It's more an extension of HTML than a JS library. It might be a good way to gently introduce more dynamic behavior without blowing out the complexity of your site.
Should I ditch using Django
reddit.com/r/startups | 2021-10-16
As an additional advice, I would check the Django subreddit and ask what are they doing for their front-end needs (e.g. check this one) -> you don't have to use JS for front-end (e.g. check htmx, unicorn, etc).
The Decline of Django
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-15
I think the case for server-side HTML rendering has never been stronger, and of all Django projects I work on, the ones I enjoy most are those that never got on the SPA bandwagon. From both a developer and user point of view I find them much faster and less painful. There are many cases where you really, really don't need the massive amount of extra complexity involved in designing APIs, adding JS frameworks etc.
When you need a bit of extra UI goodness, [htmx](https://htmx.org/) is a fantastic solution, and you can still use SPA-type approaches for things that need them.
You can also benefit from massively faster (and more reliable) functional testing when you are mostly standard HTML - see [django-functest](https://github.com/django-functest/django-functest/) for an example of this.
Has anyone written a small framework to support HTMX?

How Laravel Livewire works (a deep dive)

I recently started using htmx (https://htmx.org/) in combination with Django and have become a firm believer of sending HTML 'over the wire' instead of JSON structures that then get used client side.

Complexity and instability in the JS ecosystem is a hot button for me, so it's hard not to be drawn into vehement agreement.
I've been doing a little work recently with htmx and it's a breath of fresh air. But then, I'm at the point in my career where "cool new tech" is much less interesting for its own sake than it used to be when I was younger. I'm drawn for more to elegant, understandable, productive simplicity these days.
I think that hints at the reason we have these endless debates - not just about JS but about $(your-favourite-tech). Software development is a socio-technical endeavour. We put all the focus on the technical part, and by comparison, rarely consider the social aspect.
DHH is one of the few I've heard actually refer to this, on the corecursive podcast . In discussing static typing vs dynamic, his point is the latter suits his brain. But that he understands and accepts static typing suits others, and that's fine.
So I get that, for some, the JS ecosystem is dynamic and interesting; stimulating; exhilarating even. For others, it's an unstable quicksand that gets in the way of doing something useful.

Do you recommend learning Angular or React for the front end?

I have personally found a combination of htmx and Alpine.js to be very effective for my projects. Here's a demo project for using Spring Boot, Thymeleaf and htmx together. Here's a video on using Spring Boot w/htmx. That said, there is currently no job market for this kind of thing, although (crossed-fingers) that will change over the next few years.
Doing the Impossible — Building a Persistent Audio Player in Ruby on Rails

We’ll use Ruby on Rails and Turbo to accomplish this, but we could use Turbo’s predecessor, Turbolinks to achieve the same result, and Rails is only incidental to the finished project. We could just as easily use Turbo with any other "multi-page" framework and deliver the same experience.

Nice job solving this problem! This sounds similar to how Inertia works (https://inertiajs.com/how-it-works), or Turbolinks (https://github.com/turbolinks/turbolinks). You could dig through those libraries to see if / how they solved issues with global scope.
