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: What are some tools / libraries you built yourself?
264 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 May 2021
I created intercooler.js in 2013 so I could do AJAX in HTML:
Last year I removed the jquery dependency and cleaned it up based on a lot of lessons that I learned, renaming it to hmtx:
Same idea: extends/complete HTML as a hypertext so you can build more advanced UI within the original hypermedia web model, and cleaner implementation.
Part of that cleanup involved me pulling out some functionality around events and a proto-scripting language (ic-action), and I enjoy programming languages, so I created a front end scripting language to fill that need:
It's based on HyperTalk and has a lot of domain specific features for lightweight front end scripting, kind of a jQuery or AlpineJS alternative.
Ask HN: I feel my career is at a dead end. Any advice on what could I do?

This is my experience, and your mileage may vary:
Multiple times in my coding career I have felt stalled and/or like I was regressing.
Early on, I worked on a programming language, gosu (https://gosu-lang.github.io/) which ended up not really going anywhere. Once the work on it was done, I returned to more mundane web programming for a while. A long while after that, and unexpectedly, I turned a jQuery function I was noodling on into intercooler.js (https://intercoolerjs.org/). After a year of that I returned to mundane web programming for quite a while. Unexpectedly, a year ago, the country shut down. I was at home and decided to see if I could remove the jQuery dependency in intercooler.js, and so created htmx (https://htmx.org/). When creating htmx and removing some attribute/functionality, I realized that a small programming language would be the ideal replacement, so I created hyperscript: https://hyperscript.org/. I had not expected to work on a programming language again, but now I am.
So my career has been some very exciting technical projects punctuating long stretches of pretty basic web development, where the most exciting thing is me wondering if I can figure out what the deuce is wrong with my CSS. My takeaway here, at least in my career, is that patience is a virtue, and the interesting stuff tends to come up at irregular intervals and in unexpected moments and ways.
HTML over-the-wire is the future of Web Development

htmx is the successor to intercooler.js. It swaps parts of the page, not the whole page like Turbolinks. htmx allows you to access AJAX, CSS Transitions, WebSockets and Server Sent Events directly in HTML, using attributes, so you can build modern user interfaces with the simplicity and power of hypertext

HTMX could also be something to consider. Thomas Güttler's talk from DjangoCon has a good introduction.

htmx is a library that brings interactivity to HTML through the use of attributes and HTTP headers. Whereas projects like Vue, Angular, and React prescribe completely different programming paradigms than traditional web development, htmx provides partial-page-swapping and progressive enhancement within straight HTML. This brings a lot of the benefits of the SPA architecture to vanilla HTML, without requiring a completely different paradigm than the one we have used on the web for 30 years. In practice, this greatly reduces the complexity required to produce an interactive web application.

HATEOAS: An Alternative Explaination
I agree entirely with you and I don't regard it as unfortunate at all that this article shows that HATEOAS is unsuitable for JSON HTTP APIs.
It is extremely suitable, and, in fact, is simply descriptive, of an HTML-based API, however.
A lot of my thinking around this comes from my work on htmx, a tool that turns HTML into a richer hypermedia:
And I am actively encouraging people to try to split their thinking about JSON Data APIs (RPC) and REST-ful HTML-based systems.
The success of the web argues that the hypermedia approach is a good choice for a large set of systems.
The problem today is that hypermedia development has been stuck in the late-90's/early-00's which, when contrasted with JSON/RPC-based development, is really showing its age, particularly in terms of UX.
https://htmx.org is an attempt to rectify that situation and get hypermedia-style development back in the game as a viable, modern network architecture for more than just content-oriented web sites.
Yes, I agree entirely. The crux of the issue is that HTML has stalled as a hypermedia for a few decades now, but I am trying to fix that with htmx:
htmx is the result of my research :)

> What are its cons?
Is very pragmatic. That means your whole investment in the arcane ways of JS are dust. Not hipster at all.
More seriously, Is of little issues here. You setup and it works, so is not something that lead to "generate content" like other setups.
I found only a significant issue (to me) (https://github.com/bigskysoftware/htmx/issues/596) but then I do something that have never done in long time with a JS library: I poke into the source and fix it myself. Far easier than expected! (ie: The code is plain!)17 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Nov 2021
