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.
Why is this functional version faster than my for loop?

Designing a new language

If you want to make a compiled language and you use C/C++, use LLVM.
Is C only in terminal?

Why is MSVC so much faster at implementing new features?

Before you put any money on that, got to the LLVM repo, open the ["Contributors" tab](https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/graphs/contributors), and notice that some prominent contributors from Google (zygoloid (Richard Smith), chandlerc (Chandler Carruth), and others) have already either ceased contributing or significantly scaled down their contributions.
WebAssembly with Zig, Part 1
2 projects | dev.to | 5 Aug 2022
The beauty behind Zig is that it supports many cross-platform targets by using shims from LLVM, and almost any platform that LLVM supports, Zig will support. Let's try to write some Zig code now to add two signed integer numbers.
There is framework for everything.

`cargo-pgo`: cargo subcommand for optimizing binaries with PGO and BOLT

BOLT is a tool originally created by Facebook engineers, now it's part of mainline LLVM. https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/tree/main/bolt
A bit confuse
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Compilers | 27 Jul 2022
Yep, this is why a lot of people will target something like LLVM (https://llvm.org/) or another language (like transpiling to C) so they can leverage those systems to handle platform targeting.
What is the point of free and open source software?
2 projects | dev.to | 27 Jul 2022
One illustration of this came in 2015 when Stallman decided he would rather prevent the Gnu Compiler Collection from supporting modern IDE features like symbol completion, than allow GCC front ends to be paired with free-but-not-copyleft backends like LLVM and Clang: "Since LLVM and Clang are not copylefted, they invite nonfree extensions. They are a gaping hole in the defensive wall around our city." Allowing full access to GCC's internals would have obvious technical benefits, and as far as I know Stallman advanced no technical argument against the proposal. Disallowing it put the project at a significant disadvantage at a time when its influence was already waning. The message was clear: GCC exists to serve FSF, not the other way around.
Google's Carbon Language: An Alternative to C++ ?
6 projects | dev.to | 24 Jul 2022
Google recently unveiled Carbon, an experimental language that is intended to match the performance of the C++ language while supporting LLVM(Low Level Vitual Machine) and being able to interoperate with existing C++ code bases. This is a big deal because C++ is by far the most widely used language for developing HIGH performance low level systems.

The first 6 months of a self-hosted compiler
3 projects | dev.to | 30 Jul 2022
Since several years I work on a hobby programming language called Styx. The compiler was initially written in D. D sources were translated at the end of 2021 and finally Styx sources replaced the D ones on the 24 of January 2022, when Styx became "self-hosted".
Yes, the 8086 wanted to be mechanically translatable from the 8080, but

And now you can embed a free x86 disassembler in your program.
The cool thing to do with it is add it to your favorite text editor as a command - highlight some of your text and disassemble it! Great party game - what is your name disassembled? Valid code, or are you a seg fault?
We need a play on "Unix" to get it

[User study] Interest in a Rust-like garbage-collected programming language?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 2 Jul 2022
I don't see the point of such a language. For more modern non-vm languages there already is https://nim-lang.org/ and https://dlang.org/ that target multiple platforms natively and are more or less established. Though maybe native interop with rust could be the selling point as rust has already a nice ecosystem of crates/libraries, but then, why not use rust?
