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.
How can I compile a C# program with a different version of glibc?

msbuild is the "make" system, but for .Net. Those .csproj files are just makefiles by another name. Also, msbuild is not Windows-only. The readme specifically states that it can run on Unix (and Unix-like) systems that support .Net Core.
The most interesting C# / .NET blogs and websites

You can't do without source files when you want to better understand what is happening "under the hood" of a particular system. For example, do you want to improve your understanding of how types from the standard library work? The source code of .NET Framework and .NET will help you to do that. Do you want to dig deeper into the compiler? No problem - here is the Roslyn's source code at your service. Do you need to look inside the build system? Here you go - the MSBuild code is also open-source. By the way, if you are interested in build processes, you may also find MSBuild Structured Log Viewer useful. It's a tool that allows you to work with MSBuild build logs in a convenient format.
How can I set TEMP environment variable for MSBuild in csproj?
1 project | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 10 Dec 2021
I have a .NET 6 project that includes some Exec nodes, and those commands are failing because (as in this discussion on the msbuild repo) the paths of the generated tmp.exec.cmd files are not whitelisted.
OWASP Top Ten and Software Composition Analysis (SCA)

At the moment, we plan to implement the specified functionality for the C# analyzer. It's easy to obtain the list of dependencies for a C# project. Roslyn helps us a lot — our analyzer is built on its base. To be more precise, the main factor is the use of the same build platform (MSBuild) and a compiler for all C# projects. At the same time Roslyn is closely related to MSBuild. This makes obtaining the dependencies list trivial.
WordPress Latin1 and UTF-8, Part 2

I hope one day Microsoft will deprecate their non-unicode API, remove that TCHAR mess. I think they supported these legacy APIs long ey already. There's still a problem with PATH_MAX, see, for example, the dotnet MSBuild. Maybe even switch to the UTF-8 instead.

MSBuild has caused me years of pain, replacing it with Make is probably sensible. 👍

How do build events differ between Visual Studio for Windows and Mac?

MSBuild and the Roslyn compiler are cross-platform. So the short answer is yes.

Nuke Build - best build automation system

BUT, now I had the opportunity to use Nuke.Build for my build system and I am obsessed heavily with it that I love it so much.

Automating Umbraco Package Build & Deployments with NUKE Build, GitVersion and Azure DevOps
1 project | dev.to | 12 Aug 2021
Previously we have used MSBuild for this, however as this is XML based, it's really quite cumbersome and takes a lot of trial and error to get things working. More recently we've started to use an excellent tool called NUKE Build which is a C# based build automation tool that lets use write our build scripts in C#, benefiting from strongly typed variables and the ability to use any existing C# library for custom build requirements.

I use Gitversion with Nuke and it works seamlessly both locally as well as in a CI/CD environment (I use Azure DevOps). This is what my Compile and Pack targets for Nuke looks like
Creating reusable build scripts with NUKE components
2 projects | dev.to | 28 Jul 2021
It was at that point I started searching for an alternative. I quickly ran into another build automation system that I’d heard of before, but never really used: NUKE. Dennis Doomen (also known as ‘the guy who wrote FluentAssertions’) had written a very nice article outlining why he thought it was a great replacement. He outlines more reasons, but NUKE specifically addresses all of the issues I was having with Cake.
Write Gitlab CI Pipelines in Python Code
11 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 29 Apr 2021
What I would really like to see is a CI system that lets me write a script in a language of my choice instead of defining a pipeline config file. That way I can run the pipeline locally, put breakpoints in, etc.
Nuke  gets close but there are still a lot of tasks that don't have C# bindings, such as publishing build artifacts and uploading test results.
While I'm dreaming about my perfect CI, I'd also like the ability to download benchmark results from previous commits so that I can generate trend graphs and publish them in the build results.
To do this right the CI system would have to have an API using REST, GraphQL, gRPC or some such API format that generates clients in many languages. That way they don't have to maintain bindings in every language.
NUKE 5.1.0 Release – JSON Configuration Files, Extensible Build Summary, Improved Components and CI Generation
1 project | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 12 Apr 2021
We've released a new version of NUKE – a build automation system that aims for native integration with all kinds of developer tools. I wrote a short list of features that could be interesting for existing users and everyone else working in build automation.
What are some alternatives?
Cake - :cake: Cake (C# Make) is a cross platform build automation system.
FAKE - FAKE - F# Make
GitVersion - From git log to SemVer in no time
Psake - A build automation tool written in PowerShell
FlubuCore - A cross platform build and deployment automation system for building projects and executing deployment scripts using C# code.
Roslyn - The Roslyn .NET compiler provides C# and Visual Basic languages with rich code analysis APIs.
CS Make - Sake Build
Invoke-Build - Build Automation in PowerShell
