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.
Some Reasons to Avoid Cython

I would love some examples of how to do non-trivial data interop between Rust and Python. My experience is that PyO3/Maturin is excellent when converting between simple datatypes but conversions get difficult when there are non-standard types, e.g. Python Numpy arrays or Rust ndarrays or whatever other custom thing.
Polars seems to have a good model where it uses the Arrow in memory format, which has implementations in Python and Rust, and makes a lot of the ndarray stuff easier. However, if the Rust libraries are not written with Arrow first, they become quite hard to work with. For example, there are many libraries written with https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray, which is challenging to interop with Numpy.
(I am not an expert at all, please correct me if my characterizations are wrong!)

The date of the last commit of [ndarray](https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray) lies 6 month in the past while many recent issues are open and untouched.
Announcing Burn: New Deep Learning framework with CPU & GPU support using the newly stabilized GAT feature
7 projects | /r/rust | 6 Nov 2022
Burn is different: it is built around the Backend trait which encapsulates tensor primitives. Even the reverse mode automatic differentiation is just a backend that wraps another one using the decorator pattern. The goal is to make it very easy to create optimized backends and support different devices and use cases. For now, there are only 3 backends: NdArray (https://github.com/rust-ndarray/ndarray) for a pure rust solution, Tch (https://github.com/LaurentMazare/tch-rs) for an easy access to CUDA and cuDNN optimized operations and the ADBackendDecorator making any backend differentiable. I am now refactoring the internal backend API to make it as easy as possible to plug in new ones.

Looks like it's an open request
The Illustrated Stable Diffusion

Answer: you can’t with this crate. I implemented a dynamic n-dim solution myself but it uses views of integer indices that get copied to a new array, which have indexes to another flattened array in order to avoid duplication of possibly massive amounts of n-dimensional data; using the crate alone, copying all the array data would be unavoidable.
Ultimately I’ve had to make my own axis shifting and windowing mechanisms. But the crate is still a useful lib and continuing effort.
While I don’t mind getting into the weeds, these kinds of side efforts can really impact context focus so it’s just something to be aware of.
Any efficient way of splitting vector?
2 projects | /r/rust | 12 Sep 2022
In principle you're trying to convert between columnar and row-based data layouts, something that happens fairly often in data science. I bet there's some hyper-efficient SIMD magic that could be invoked for these slicing operations (and maybe the iterator solution does exactly that). Might be worth taking a look at how the relevant Rust libraries like ndarray do it.

Making Maintaining Easier
5 projects | /r/rust | 25 Apr 2021
First, let me explain a crate, where old dependencies do matter. There is one very handy crate called nshare. It's used for converting images into ndarrays. The libraries between nshare converts are regularly updated, for example to support new formats or to make the usage more convenient. If one writes a new software there could be conflicts in versions of ndarray (for example), so we make sure, that nshare is always up-to-date and works with the newest versions in order to build the best code on it. Another example could be everything cryptographic. If there would be a security issue with ring we really want every dependent to be updated.
