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.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning monocypher.cr yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.

This article  has a good explanation of why clamping is necessary. But the process is very simple, you just generate 256 random bits, clear the three lowest order to avoid small subgroup attacks, then clear the highest order and set the second highest order to avoid side-channel attacks which may occur if an implementation isn’t constant-time. The Libsodium source shows this pretty clearly: , lines 18-23.

Save yourself the trouble and use an existing implementation https://github.com/jedisct1/libsodium/blob/master/src/libsodium/crypto_aead/aes256gcm/aesni/aead_aes256gcm_aesni.c

You should look over the implementations in, for example, libsodium https://github.com/jedisct1/libsodium and either copy them outright or at least ensure you perform the same steps they do.
