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.
Low-latency audio streaming (local network)

Jam – Self-Hosted Clubhouse
Mumble isn't exactly P2P. It has a server (murmurd) that handles all the streams. I think it could work as SFU. And, actually, there is a web frontend: https://github.com/Johni0702/mumble-web
Your use of Opus and the option to run a SFU makes this a suitable replacement of Mumble for meetings, like in the Pirate Parties around the world. We are heavy users of Mumble.
Start to finish guide for creating a mumble server and hooking it into Bukkit/Spigot/Paper for interconnected chat, with a web interface.

Self hosted in-browser Discord alternative?

I would also recommend Matrix with the Element client, but if you'd prefer something else, there's mumble-web, a web client for Mumble. I tested it out a couple months ago, and it works pretty well, but it took forever to figure out how to set it up. Just another option in case you don't like the others.
Show HN: Jam, an Open Source Clubhouse

Nice project. For server side mixing, how hard would be to integrate Jam with Mumble? There is a Github repository that does it: https://github.com/Johni0702/mumble-web
Jam – Self-Hosted Clubhouse
The main repo is over at Gitlab: https://gitlab.com/jam-systems/jam/ which also has the issue tracker (we could do a better job keeping that up to date though tbh).
Wow, I just woke up to this. Glad to see Jam here on hn. We've come a long way since the initial release earlier this year (Show HN: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=26131123).
Most of our efforts since february went into making the rooms more reliable which sounds simple but there are actually countless of different reasons for why audio might not work or not work as well as it could (switching from wifi to mobile data, microphone permissions, bandwidth problems, OS forces app into background, …) some are solvable others at least need to be documented and tracked.
What else is new other than reliability?:
# Support for large rooms (think: thousands of people in the audience) using an SFU
Initially Jam only had support for p2p rooms which is great for small rooms (up to like ~20 people depending on upstream bandwidth of the speakers) but for online conferences, meetups and so on you often need rooms that support 100s or 1000s of participants so we added an SFU where the speakers still send audio to each other p2p to keep conversations low-latency but we use a server to stream audio to all users that are in the audience.
(That said: you can still run Jam p2p-only if you prefer that)
# Locally recorded multi-track audio (think: podcasts with multiple guests, where you get one high quality audio track per speaker)
You can try multi-track audio recordings on our public beta server (https://beta.jam.systems). Tap on our own user and then "Start Podcast Recording". When you tap on your own user again and then "Stop Podcast Recording" the browser will prompt you with downloads for all audio tracks (we will make this more smooth going forward).
# Custom UI
E.g. let's say you have an app like Google Docs and you want to allow people to talk about a document. In this case you might want something that doesn't look like a room on Clubhouse or Twitter Spaces but rather like a line of avatars and with the API and library you can build this yourself now:
# Managed hosting
For everyone who wants to use Jam but doesn't want to install and maintain Jam themselves we are run and support Jam for you (think: what Wordpress.com is to Wordpress.org):

Is it bad practice to blend docker-compose files together?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/docker | 7 Apr 2021
most Docker-compose.yml files I come across, e.g. https://gitlab.com/jam-systems/jam/-/blob/master/deployment/docker-compose.yml or https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/blob/develop/support/docker/production/docker-compose.yml propose the complete setup while some propose those and a slimmer version without a web servers or reverse proxy https://github.com/nextcloud/docker#base-version---fpm
The Clubhouse clones are coming

I think the drop-in audio room is here to stay. It is a format.
hn is a text room. Similar to how Twitter is a text room. Similar yet different.
I'm working on Jam which is an open source implementation of the drop-in audio room format, in many ways similar to Clubhouse or Twitter Spaces but also different (and more versatile).
I found Benedict Evens' take on Slack adding audio rooms and what it means for Clubhouse:
Some things are so fundamental that it is difficult to say whether they were "invented" or "original". In some cases _discovered_ seems more fitting.

Why would you want yo use Clubhouse? You could use free, Open Source and privacy-respecting alterntives such as Jam (the closest to Clubhouse, can be self-hosted), Jitsi or Mumble...
Open source projects should run office hours

For Jam (open source Clubhouse) we do a weekly “Jam Jam” which basically is an audio space that people can join (no video, no calendar slot negotiation, connecting with others who use the project).
We link to it in our readme
(can be improved)
I wonder if there is a better name for the concept that works for international audiences and people who don’t know the concept from academia.
For larger projects I can also imagine other formats like “show and tell” or “Q & A” where people submit questions (maybe even with donations or paid to create an income stream for the people working on the project)
