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.
Are Hoistings Possible for C++?
8 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 17 Aug 2022
When you say a fork of LLVM, am I correct in assuming that you specifically mean a fork of Clang? I don't see how the compiler backend would affect support for language extensions, regardless of whether it's an exception to that such as Tcc, Cproc, the MIR C jitter, lacc, 8cc, 9cc, and chibicc. Most of those are not for production, excluding Cproc and Tcc (at least according to Suckless or Oasis).
Suggestion for a backend?

Nelua Programming Language
> I wish C was scriptable
C kinda can be used as scripting language with MIR project https://github.com/vnmakarov/mir
It was released just a few days ago, and I've successfully use it as an alternative and fast C compiler with Nelua.

The compiler is written in C, and translates input code to an Abstract Syntax Tree. This is then transformed to a linear IR, which is finally translated to C code. The generated C code can be JIT compiled using the MIR backend or compiled ahead-of-time into shared library.

Crystal 1.6.0 Is Released

I'd think it would be system level programming with acceptably good performance with high level abstractions and the Ruby flavor. Similarly is Nelua which uses Lua's syntax and APIs and compiles to C.

Also, very similar to Nelua, what are the main differences (optional GC in Nelua seems to be an obvious one)?
I created my own programming language that compiles into Lua code but uses a more C/Rust like syntax

OTOH, if you want to go in the opposite direction (Lua to C), I like Nelua a lot :)

Nelua Programming Language
A discussion about GC and memory management can be found here https://github.com/edubart/nelua-lang/discussions/70
Maybe it can answer to some parts of your reasoning? :/
Here's the author's thoughts on Nelua vs Terra.
What are some alternatives?
LuaJIT - Mirror of the LuaJIT git repository
terra - Terra is a low-level system programming language that is embedded in and meta-programmed by the Lua programming language.
godot-lua-pluginscript - Godot PluginScript for the Lua language, currently based on LuaJIT's FFI
moonscript - :crescent_moon: A language that compiles to Lua
red - Red is a next-generation programming language strongly inspired by Rebol, but with a broader field of usage thanks to its native-code compiler, from system programming to high-level scripting and cross-platform reactive GUI, while providing modern support for concurrency, all in a zero-install, zero-config, single 1MB file!
