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.
A Look at Performance in Wasmtime and Cranelift

The bytecode alliance had the lucet project which would be an OS executing WASM application, enabling very strict sandboxing.
Your python 4 dream list.

References for anyone following: wasmtime Lucet
There are a *lot* of actor framework projects on Cargo.
17 projects | /r/rust | 1 May 2021
I guess lucet could be an under-layer for this but it's not really the same, different levels of the stack. Fascinating.
Writing Rust the Elixir way
5 projects | dev.to | 26 Nov 2020
I also want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to the teams working on Rust, Wasmer, Wasmtime, Lucet and waSCC. It would be impossible to build Lunatic without all the hard work put into this projects.
Elixir and Rust is a good mix
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 Apr 2023
As it usually goes in programming, "it depends on your objectives", there are things that are easier accomplished with the ErlangVM than Rust. Also, if you want a language that uses the ErlangVM and has static types, maybe you should take a look at Glean.
In my case I prefer to work with Elixir because of the community, I find way easier to work professionally with Elixir than many other languages, as mostly projects follows the same good practices, use the same tools and have good documentation.

> I used to use Elixir, but the lack of static types got to me (especially since I prefer the type-driven development methodology).
You might be interested in Gleam.

https://gleam.run is a statically typed language on the BEAM
What library or tool is causing you the most pain right now?
7 projects | /r/reactjs | 8 Mar 2023
Gleam is a BEAM language that's statically typed.
Would you still choose Elixir/Phoenix/LiveView if scaling and performance weren’t an issue to solve for?
3 projects | /r/elixir | 7 Mar 2023
Dynamic typing does have its issues but is fairly manageable particularly with pattern matching. It has its tradeoffs. If you prefer static typing you could take a look at Gleam.
Phoenix 1.7.0 Released: Built-In Tailwind, Verified Routes, LiveView Streams
13 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Mar 2023
If you're a typing fan as I am, and you are interested in the BEAM then you may want to check out [Gleam, a sibling language of Elixir](https://github.com/gleam-lang/gleam/) which has an Elm/OCaml/F# style static type system. It provides many of the strengths of Elixir but with that statically typed programming style which you may prefer.
(disclosure: I'm the lead dev!)
But for how long?

Gleam might be the language for you then
Elixir for Humans Who Know Python

Sounds like Gleam would be up your alley :) As an F# guy myself, I am hoping it pans out, as I miss the BEAM platform!
