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.
Manipulate LLVM IR without LLVM!
2 projects | /r/rust | 6 Apr 2022
Currently it's not possible to load bytecode modules. It only supports loading (textual) LLVM IR modules (not lazily). I know https://github.com/woodruffw/mollusc is a library that loads bytecode modules, but not sure it's sufficient for your purpose.
Compiler Optimization Learning Suggestions

Secondly, I have learned about LLVM, and I have learned about the Inkwell library on Rust (It's a New Kind of Wrapper for Exposing LLVM (Safely)). Has anyone used this library before? Is this a good practice? Is it suitable for my compiler? Can I write some optimization passes of my own using this library?

inkwell is a great llvm binding for rust and it has an implementation of kaleidoscope
Need help improving API for crate relying on Inkwell (Self-referential struct alternative)
2 projects | /r/rust | 24 Jan 2023
I'm working on a compiler that uses the LLVM wrapper Inkwell for compilation. In order to compile something in inkwell, unless I'm missing something (which I very well might be), you need two structs:

How good is LLVM in other languages other than C++? (In my case I'm interested in using Rust)
6 projects | /r/ProgrammingLanguages | 3 Jun 2022
I'm currently using the Inkwell bindings for Rust, which I've found actually pretty nice. In terms of generating LLVM IR, the C bindings (which is what Inkwell uses internally) can do anything you want them to (definitely not limited to trivial languages as someone else here said.) I'm even using the LLVM garbage collection infrastructure, with no problems (well, no problems in generating it; the LLVM GC infrastructure works pretty well but is sparsely documented, so actually writing a GC is fairly difficult, but it's doable). The C bindings are actually more stable than the C++ bindings (!), although not quite as stable as the textual IR format; but without the bindings you would have to write code to generate the IR yourself, the compiler would be slower as it must be emitted as text and then reparsed in a different process, and you would have less control over optimization.
Are there any repos of tutorials on writing a compiler in Rust?

LLVM Infrastructure and Rust
3 projects | dev.to | 23 Dec 2021
As we reviewed in this article LLVM IR has many use-cases and allows us to analyze and optimize source code through its passes. Knowing IR language itself will help us to write our passes and build projects around it for debugging, testing, optimizing. Currently, LLVM IR doesn't have Rust API. It's mainly used through the C++ library. However, some user-created repos are available on crates.io. There is a Rust binding to LLVM's C API - llvm-sys and two other, more Rusty APIs that are using LLVM: inkwell and llvm-ir. And finally, if you want to learn how to write a LLVM pass you should start here.
What sort of mature, open-source libraries do you feel Rust should have but currently lacks?

The high level crate is called inkwell.
What's the best way to generate LLVM code in Rust?
2 projects | /r/learnrust | 24 Oct 2021
https://github.com/TheDan64/inkwell is about as high-level as it gets (from what I've seen). It's based on top of llvm-sys, which is thankfully kept up-to-date with the LLVM releases.

On a side note, there are good high level bindings to llvm-sys, inkwell
