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.

Twitter's new font, Chirp, is apparently giving some users headaches
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Aug 2021
This looks very much as if the font renderer is aggressively hinting to the pixel grid vertically, but not horizontally. That’s a known trick for getting a decent compromise between crisp text (along the baselines and tops of letters) with subpixel horizontal kerning.
I doubt the Android renderer is really broken and no-one has noticed until now, so I’d guess the font either has bad hinting, or more likely it’s just being displayed at an awkward size and vertical positions are being rounded in an awkward way. You can see the slight deviations from the baseline in the iOS screenshots, it’s just much more subtle as it isn’t being hinted.
(Source: I contributed a little bit to font rendering in Urho3D, to fix some similar text aliasing glitches: https://github.com/urho3d/Urho3D/issues/1953)
What code only engines for C or C++ are there?

I've heard good things about Urho3d, but have never used it.

Urho3D works on mobiles, Windows, Mac, and even on the R Pi. It's a code-first engine with a minimal editor.
2D game framework/engine that is mostly code driven (not GUI-driven)

Godot support for 3D is too primitive, and Unity has become a wild mess over the years. Is Unreal Engine the only remaining option for 3D projects?

You might give rbfx a look. It is an actively developed fork of Urho3D that has pretty decent, and actively developed, 3D rendering.
Best library for 3D development that doesn't require GLFW/GLAD etc
1 project | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 8 May 2021
You might give rbfx a try. It's a fork of Urho3D which is also good, though aging. While they do verge into engine territory, they're not editor-based as Unity and Godot are, and in fact the editors for each are quite rudimentary and unfinished. For a programming-centric workflow, they're pretty nice.

Looking for code only game engine

As far as an existing engine goes I would recommend Urho3D (or RBFX a fork of Urho3D) . The engine is surprisingly complete and capable and pretty slim compared to most other engines with similar feature sets. It supports scripting, but everything can be done directly through C++ as well. It has a graphical editor, but you an do everything through source code if that's your preference.
What are some alternatives?
Ogre 3D - scene-oriented, flexible 3D engine (C++, Python, C#, Java)
bgfx - Cross-platform, graphics API agnostic, "Bring Your Own Engine/Framework" style rendering library.
Open-Source Vulkan C++ API - Open-Source Vulkan C++ API
Horde3D - Horde3D is a small 3D rendering and animation engine. It is written in an effort to create an engine being as lightweight and conceptually clean as possible.
OpenSceneGraph - OpenSceneGraph git repository
magnum - Lightweight and modular C++11 graphics middleware for games and data visualization
rbfx - Game engine with (optional) C# support and WYSIWYG editor.
GLFW - A multi-platform library for OpenGL, OpenGL ES, Vulkan, window and input
