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.
I made a browser extension that automatically applies themes on websites generated with mdBook.
2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 30 Jan 2023
I personally had the frustration that websites generated with [mdBook](https://github.com/rust-lang/mdBook) always displayed me the "Navy" theme. But I prefer the "Ayu" theme, therefore I always set the theme to "Ayu". But doing things per hand is not the way we do stuff around here, so I decided to write a small browser extension that applies the themes for me.

It's mdBook which is made in Rust and popular with Rust content https://rust-lang.github.io/mdBook/

mdbook PDF generator with (optionally) no dependencies

I made a PDF generator for mdbook called mdbook-compress.
How to improve documentation / technical writing skills?

This makes me think, maybe I'll start using mdBook. I find it really comfortable to read and it's probably not too complicated to use.
Anyone use Git for writing projects?

I sync Obsidian with Git and use pandoc for book / ebook generation (or Foam with Visual Code might work too).
Scrivener can synchronise with Git too - albeit indirectly (it sync's with a folder & I use a simple script to keep it up to date)
If you need to organise research you can sync Wiki.js with Git.
However, Gitbook or mdBook might be easier to use for a single book project.

+1 for Pandoc. I'll also add mdBook as an alternate for markdown to web version of ebooks (especially for search and themes).
What’s the prettiest yet most lightweight self-hosted wiki service out there?

I also don't mind using a Markdown editor + static site generator like mdBook - BookStack is where I'd have gone if I wanted something else

All credit goes to the mdbook people for this! I'm using it to turn Markdown text into HTML, complete with interactive playgrounds and all :-)

If you want Markdown instead of Org Mode, Codebraid is great.

Fortunately, literate programming is a thing, so there are still tools for that. If you want PDF/HTML output facilities, it looks like CodeBraid is the way to go. It uses the Pandoc framework, so you can do all kinds of neat things with it.
R Markdown: The Definitive Guide

For the Python in markdown case, you might be interested in one of my projects that allows executable Python code (including optional Jupyter kernel support) in Pandoc markdown: https://github.com/gpoore/codebraid. Pandoc does all the document parsing (there is no regex preprocessor for extracting code), so converting markdown to markdown often works particularly well.

A tool that really helped me was codebraid, it allows me to keep the code and output of said code in sync really easily.
