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.
Announcing the MAGIC Monero Fund!
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Monero | 4 Dec 2021
Eventually I would like to see it added to getmonero.org alongside the CCS, Bounties, and monerodevs.org as discussed [here](https://github.com/monero-project/monero-site/issues/1880).
Monero without addresses
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Monero | 2 Dec 2021
It's not just to avoid having to compare addresses. Currently, many merchants avoid using subaddresses for customer assurance (no way to prove a subaddress belongs to a particular merchant). See for example the discussion to deprecate integrated addresses.

Self-replicating Monero nodes on the horizon with I2P torrenting
2 projects | reddit.com/r/Monero | 25 Nov 2021
The only difference for users joining the network for the first time would be that they can get the downloads to run a node/wallet from an official torrent magnet link instead of having to go to getmonero.org or github.2 projects | reddit.com/r/Monero | 25 Nov 2021
This is already the case for people downloading the new releases from getmonero.org or github. The idea here is that rather than having to pay for centralized infrastructure to serve downloads, the devs just release one torrent magnet link and do a little seeding. Thereafter, downloads are served by the network of nodes which make up the Monero network.

Mining p2pool makes Monero resistant to 51% attacks

Monero has a serious user friendly problem
11 projects | reddit.com/r/Monero | 14 Nov 2021
The sync time actually could be mitigated by the wallets themselves by finding the way how to move the sync process into the background to run it all the time. Of course, this is not so trivial to do as it sounds because some platforms have technical limitations e.g. iOS has a very limited policy for background tasks. Nonetheless, there are still ways how this could be bypassed, and one of them I'm using myself: MyMonero + monero-lws on a dedicated hardware which is running 24/7. With this setup I have instant status of my wallet status anytime, even after a month without sacrificing any(?) privacy. Of course, this is still miles away from being "friendly to use / good UX" because first and foremost it requires building "monero-lws" from the source code where most of the non-tech-savvy would immediately fail, there are other setup challenges as well but that's not the point. The point I wanted to make is that wallet sync time definitely has ways in which it can be improved, at least from the UX perspective. Sometimes solutions needs a bit more out-of-the-box thinking.
ELI5 Request: The F' is Happening With Decoy and Ring Sigs
1 project | reddit.com/r/Monero | 4 Oct 2021
Also important to note from that post discussing the bugs: the initial reported bug turned out to be not as severe (i.e. you actually cannot definitively identify real outputs spent right after unlock because of the bug). We found that an alternative implementation of the algorithm (in monero-lws) did not have the bug and is widely used by at least one popular wallet (MyMonero). So that means anyone using MyMonero's transactions could have feasibly selected recent decoys, and therefore recent outputs on chain could be decoys.
Farcaster: Community update August
4 projects | reddit.com/r/Monero | 7 Sep 2021
We have now completed the necessary interfaces for communicating with both blockchains - something we termed syncers. The integration work in the node is mostly complete. For bitcoin, we are currently using the electrum protocol, while for monero we are communicating with the monero daemon and monero-wallet-rpc. Using the monero-wallet-rpc for multiple swaps at a time proved quite slow during our testing, so we are now exploring the usage of vtnerd's monero light wallet server. In contrast to the monero-wallet-rpc, the light wallet server can keep track of and scan for transactions of multiple distinct view keys at a time. Our work integrating the monero rpc interfaces also led to some pull requests to monero-rpc-rs in the monero-ecosystem project.
Can I host my own "lite" wallet server?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/monerosupport | 15 Jun 2021
Technically, yes, but it’s fairly difficult and not user friendly at the moment. I believe it can be done with OpenMonero and monero-lws, both created by community members. Here’s the repo to lws: https://github.com/vtnerd/monero-lws
Monero lightwallet client options

I have found the vtnerd lightwallet server monero-lws. I want to use that on my Monero node. But as far as I know the official GUI does not support the lightwallet api. Is that correct? What are my options to connect to the light wallet server?
