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.
Angular Is Rotten to the Core
I still think it is a shame that Microsoft's proposed scroll-translation CSS still hasn't made it into the CSS multi-column standard (and also didn't survive Edge Classic to Chromium Edge shift either).
It's been on my backlog for a while to find a good JS replacement but haven't been happy with the ones I've tested: https://github.com/WorldMaker/lcars-moderne/issues/1
Thanks for the suggestions. I hadn't realized Github Pages supported SSL today for custom domains, missed a Let's Encrypt at some point I suppose. Trying to get that activated. I'll have to look into the mixed content warnings later.
Reading the HN feedback I did make a note to adjust the body font color: https://github.com/WorldMaker/lcars-moderne/issues/4
Might also play with some of those newer color theme ideas, the Lower Decks inspired ones spark joy for me. (I used a different theme site for some of the colors that was at lcarsdeveloper.com and seems maybe done now. This one seems similar and I'm wondering if they just had to change domain names at some point.)
Angular v14 is now available

The biggest flaw that I think most other flaws derive from is making the huge dependency on RxJS, but then not trusting it and building in escape hatches that end up making "Angular Best Practices" wind up becoming "RxJS Worst Practices" and performance suffers accordingly. I noticed that even the Roadmap now mentions that they are finally re-evaluating the play between RxJS, Angular Change Detection and Zone.js. Rx.JS is "push" oriented so why do you need two complex "pull" oriented systems around it?
(In my opinion: Zone.js and Angular Change Detection are these extremely baroque, over-complicated systems that aren't necessary at all if Angular actually trusted RxJS to "push" changes. Or they could skip the huge RxJS dependency and go all in on "pull" like Vue/Svelte. What they have today is a worst of all worlds compromise that benefits no one.)

Or you can read it on my actual blog site but it scrolls horizontally when the browser is wider than tall and that got a lot of hate the last time my blog was on HN that distracted from the contents: http://blog.worldmaker.net/2021/06/26/angular/
While we are at it, here's the Component Framework I built out of what felt like necessity to try to make following RxJS best practices easier in building Angular Components (and make it easier to switch components to ChangeDetectionStrategy.OnPush and apps towards being able to set Zone.js to "noop"), which I built out of some struggles doing performance optimization work in Angular and some patterns I was already following in Component building: https://worldmaker.net/angular-pharkas/
