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.
Math on GitHub: Following Up
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Jun 2022
Github's implementation is really lazy. There are many much better approaches to precisely this problem. E.g., Jupyter notebooks implement one that has matured in the wild over a decade. There's this very flexible markdown-it plugin that implements anther https://github.com/goessner/markdown-it-texmath, and my version of it here https://github.com/sagemathinc/cocalc/blob/master/src/packag... which I rewrote in typescript with a focus on the same semantics as Jupyter has, but for CoCalc, and I've been working on using unifiedjs to provide more general latex for Markdown (not just formulas) here https://github.com/sagemathinc/cocalc/pull/5982 Parsing math is much easier if you use a plugin to an existing markdown parser, rather than trying to do some hack outside of that (which is what Github probably does, and also what Jupyter does).
Math on GitHub: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

If you use a proper markdown plugin to parse math instead (such as https://github.com/goessner/markdown-it-texmath), then the problems pointed out in this blog post go away.
From Quarto to orgmode
3 projects | reddit.com/r/orgmode | 22 Nov 2022
Right on the front page, the maintainers state that it relies on pandoc (there is a r/pandoc, too). When it comes to exporting books, output formats include .html, ms word (I guess what they want to say, .docx, though a speculation), or .epub. Pandoc's main site reports epub with the two-sided arrow, for both standard 2 and 3, for import and export. So chances are, that this can be used for pandoc's conversion to .org (equally permitting import/export), too. Typically, you run something like
latex alternative that works with word?
Especially if the level of math is not too high/complex, have a look markdown (e.g., learnxinyminutes.com) which works really well for pandoc.org to convert in many other formats (including .docx, .odt, .tex .html, etc.) and be equally welcome on r/pandoc.
Pandoc can convert files
You can use markup languages like org-mode or markdown to convert them to other formats like LaTeX or Word or HTML with Pandoc. Pandoc supports several formats, you can read about them here. You can write latex equations to cite bibliography in a very easy way and it’s gets carried over to the other format.

I'm looking for a maths notation app

Ghostwriter (Markdown) + Mathjax + Pandoc for export. Distraction free and good rendering.
Why is Markdown popular?

Markdown + inline HTML is not that bad. I author my website https://getreuer.info this way, compiled using the excellent Pandoc.
Math equations' font in KaTeX
2 projects | reddit.com/r/LaTeX | 11 Nov 2022
Give me some rope here, because you don't describe the installation available to you. I assume it is possible for you to collect and process the .md files locally. If so, a joint installation of miktex (for the part of e.g., rendering equations with pdfLaTeX), and pandoc for the conversion of file formats, e.g., markdown to .pdf, is handy.
