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.
No way to select a language?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/openstreetmap | 23 May 2022
Their design goals may differ from yours, but relevantly for the discussion of language is their goal of "Being understandable and supportive for mappers". This supports local people doing the on the ground mapping, over foreigners wanting to read the map. Another goal is to "represent the diversity of the OSM community and geography in general", which again is in support of using the national languages as the default. See Design goals and guidelines for openstreetmap-carto for more info.
Why is the forest not rendering above the park on the map?

Taking our next step in the City by the Bay

The benches are even mapped with their 'viewing direction' and color :)
Why does natural=water override the leisure=track rendering, but natural=sand does not?
1 project | reddit.com/r/openstreetmap | 21 Feb 2022
They just didn't think of this micro-mapping scenario. You can try and do something about it here: https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues
POIs on private / restricted areas?
1 project | reddit.com/r/openstreetmap | 25 Jan 2022
For the main map rendering, that's the OSM carto project: https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto
Just made 2 nodes, how come one is normal and one is transparent? Details in comments.
1 project | reddit.com/r/openstreetmap | 22 Nov 2021
This is a conscious decision by the maintainers of the standard layer, OSM-carto, and makes sense as you want to make public parking more obvious than places with restricted access.
No cartography symbol for temples (general)?!?

Looking to Download an .IMG exactly like openstreetmaps.org
2 projects | reddit.com/r/openstreetmap | 26 Aug 2021
In that case, openstreetmap.org uses the Carto style by default, for which Kosmtik should do the job, but I haven't personally tried it to know how to use it. JTileDownloader also might work to download the tiles directly from the website, but again, haven't used personally.
Maplibre.org Open Maps SDKs for web and mobile: community driven Mapbox GL fork
Does there need to be?
Metal support (coming soon) and MBTiles support (released AFAIK) are two things I know of, but I defer to the Releases page for specifics beyond that: https://github.com/maplibre/maplibre-gl-native/releases.
There is active development on a Metal-supporting version, yes!
https://github.com/maplibre/maplibre-gl-native/tree/metal-su... is the branch and https://github.com/maplibre/maplibre-gl-native/issues?q=is%3... are associated issues.
Yes, we have a beta build of the SDK with Metal support (https://github.com/maplibre/maplibre-gl-native/tree/metal-su..., https://github.com/maplibre/maplibre-gl-native/releases/tag/...). There are some minor issues we are addressing in the new release. Contributors and brave souls willing to try out the build are more than welcome :).
