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.

> but I'm sure it won't be able to open a 1KB text file instantaneously in 5 years
Unless you decide to switch to a modern console-based text editor. It doesn't have to be vim or emacs. There are many other alternatives. One new such editor written-in-Rust being Iota: https://github.com/gchp/iota
Suitable Rust GUI Library for Code Editor?

Have a look at what Lapce uses. The editor is coming along nicely, and iirc, they use the Xi editor as a plug-in.
CRDTs make multiplayer text editing part of Zed's DNA
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 1 Dec 2022
Raph Levien posted a retrospective about using CRDT’s for collaborative editing in xi-editor here . His conclusion is
“I come to the conclusion that the CRDT is not pulling its (considerable) weight. When I think about a future evolution of xi-editor, I see a much brighter future with a simpler, largely synchronous model, that still of course has enough revision tracking to get good results with asynchronous peers like the language server.”

New open source Common Lisp 3D graphics project -- call for participation

Maybe architect kernel as a microservice? There was some text editor developed as a microservice; I don't see why it couldn't work for a FX application or game engine.
Zas editor post-mortem
4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 21 Jun 2022
A while ago there was a post about Zas Editor, an editor for mac that used parts of Xi as the backend. Since then, the website has been taken down and it's presumably abandoned. There was some apprehension about its licensing but it was cool.
GitHub is sunsetting Atom
17 projects | reddit.com/r/programming | 8 Jun 2022
I thought that after the failure of the https://github.com/xi-editor/xi-editor project (which Lapce seems to take inspiration from) people would stop trying it, but looks like it's doing the opposite.
Sunsetting Atom Text Editor
19 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 8 Jun 2022
Why not collaborate with developers of existing code editors such as Xi Editor (https://xi-editor.io) or Lapce (https://lapce.dev) instead of making yet another one?
As for lightweight alternatives to Atom, there is also Lite-XL (https://lite-xl.com).

Suggestions for building an IDE
10 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 10 Apr 2022
My initial thoughts are using something like the xi-editor or parts from it for text manipulation, some rust GUI framework for rendering, like egui or iced, for more language contextual actions like autocomplete I think I'd have to look into the LSP.10 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 10 Apr 2022
Oh I didn't realize that it might have been a serious question, I'm too unfamiliar with the domain to not make stupid misinterpretations it seems, really sorry about that. Anyway no, that's a good suggestion, I think starting there makes the most sense but I'm having some decision-anxiety about where to start. I think xi-editor is likely to be the best place to start constructing an editor without making the project impossible to finish
