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.
Which tools do you use to create diagrams?

Diagrams as Code
2 projects | dev.to | 28 Feb 2023
Another solution which I prefer is - maintaining diagrams as code which live in the same repos as the code. There are many tools these days which help us author diagrams from code. My favorites are Mermaid and PlantUML. Now your code can live in the repo and evolve along with the codebase. You might need to do additional setup if you'd like the diagrams to be generated as part of your CI/CD. I like to maintain these in a /docs folder within the project repo.
Mermaid Cheat Sheet
Individual diagrams have their grammar in a .jison file.
A single grammar to support all the different use cases would be challenging. But we did have some plans to introduce guidelines to make different diagram syntaxes more consistent.
This would really be a good UX improvement.
But the implementation might be a little tricky.
Please raise an issue so we can discuss further, and add it to roadmap if feasible.

This is so cool. It reminds me of Markdown and Mermaid (https://github.com/mermaid-js/mermaid), which can do a similar thing within a plain text file. Keep it up; looking forward to trying it out.
Architecture diagrams should be code

KeenWrite, the FOSS Markdown text editor I’ve been working on, includes the ability to render plain text diagrams via Kroki†. See the screenshots for examples. Here’s a sample Markdown document that was typeset using ConTeXt (and an early version of the Solare theme).
One reason I developed KeenWrite was to use variables inside of plain text diagrams. In the genealogy diagram, when any character name (that’s within the diagram) is updated, the diagram regenerates automatically. (The variables are defined in an external YAML file, allowing for integration with build pipelines.)
Version 3.x containerizes the typesetting system, which greatly simplifies the installation instructions that allow typesetting Markdown into PDF files. It also opens the door to moving Kroki into the container so that diagram descriptions aren’t pushed over the Internet to be rendered.
†Kroki, ergo KeenWrite, supports BlockDiag (BlockDiag, SeqDiag, ActDiag, NwDiag, PacketDiag, RackDiag), BPMN, Bytefield, C4 (with PlantUML), Ditaa, Erd, Excalidraw, GraphViz, Nomnoml, Pikchr, PlantUML, Structurizr, SvgBob, UMLet, Vega, Vega-Lite, and WaveDrom.
Note that Mermaid diagrams generate non-conforming SVG, so they don’t render outside of web browsers. There is work being done to address this problem.

I used excalidraw for the diagrams, unsure of the font.
Could someone give me some feedback on my first 2 diagrams?

On work, I use mostly tools like Draw.io and some colleges more Excalidraw (looks more fancy but less powerful). Those are easy tools to create a diagram with existing extensions for VScode. This helps to create an editable diagram which can be saved as an image. I like to use to save my draw.io file as a *.drawio.png file. So I can open it with draw.io to edit and when viewing the file from a browser, you see the PNG image. In this case, I never forget to export the latest state into my docs.

Thanks mate! I used excalidraw, and I use an extension on VSCode so I can edit the files locally instead of using the cloud version.
