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.

 Monthly Hask Anything (June 2021)

Friendship ended with Monads: Testing out Algebraic effects in OCaml for Animations
I would argue that the fact that not all monads compose is a feature, not a bug, in that not all effects are compatible. Citing from inotherwords:

Haskellers who moved to Rust: What has been your experience?
You can swapout implementations for testing, avoid the crazy N^2 instances issues, etc. They're pretty cool. Currently there are many competing libraries. polysemy and eff both have good examples on their homepages.

What are the current hot topics in type theory and static analysis?
Effect systems and Algebraic effects. ocaml has just released a strippeddown effect system. People are also working on Effect systems for Haskell (eff, fusedeffects, effet). Koka is a language built with effects first and foremost and itâ€™s rapidly gaining popularity. Unison also has effects.

[ANNOUNCE] GHC 9.6.1 is now available
There are also a few subtle issues that arise with delconts related to semantics of higher order effects (see here and here), but they might be solvable.

Looking for languages that combine algebraic effects with parallel execution
You'll get fearless parallel with STM in the mixture, and GHC is getting a work in progress effect system for Haskell, as Delimited continuation primops has been merged.

Should I pick up OCaml or Haskell?
My last example is algebraic effects, some of which have been made possible in a both practical and efficient way thanks to extremely recent research, and that I can use to implement architectures like Ports and Adapters or Clean Architecture and have very maintainable code. (Extensible Effects â€” An Alternative to Monad Transformers was published in 2013, Effect Handlers in Scope was published in 2014 and they are behind Polysemy, while there is ongoing work on effects with even better performance, like Eff)

[ANN] cleff  fast and consise extensible effects
cleff's Eff monad is esentially implemented as a ReaderT IO. [...] This is first done by eff, [...]

Opinions on Reader + Continuationbased IO?
Here is link number 1  Previous text "eff"

Where's more discussion of the designs of effect systems?
Languages such as Koka only support algebraic effects, not scoping operations such as catch and listen. The Effect Handlers in Scope paper introduces scoping operations, which lead to the Haskell libraries fusedeffects and polysemy, but they turned out to have some weird semantics. eff is her effort to fix that.

Languages that don't support ErrorCatching as a Control Structure?
There are a few languages that have algebraic effect systems, most notably Haskell, but these systems are implemented as libraries, not baked into the language (which can have advantages and disadvantages).
