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.

If you want an all around easy to use tool that can manager containers (create on the fly, delete when unnecessary, etc.) look into vagrant. There are also options like xen and virtualbox but they are not so lightweight. All of them are in ubuntu repositories.

OrbStack – Docker Desktop and Colima Alternative for macOS
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Apr 2023
This looks awesome. The state of virtualization on Apple Silicon right now is a bit painful. If this really does provide semi performant x86 Linux emulation and there was a Vagrant Provider plugin then this would easily be the defacto tool for dev / testing VMs on macOS.
Same probably applies to hashicorp Packer.
Every tool I have tried like Parallels and VMWare Fusion 13 Pro says that nested virtualization for windows is not possible. If this is possible with Orb at some point i’d pay for it.
I often want to test a Windows VM with Docker installed into WSL2 and this becomes a nightmare now on Apple Silicon.
Also I wonder what possibility this opens up for an improved toolchain to develop stuff like Asahi Linux by bridging macOS native tooling and Linux emulation to write and test code without rebooting or using two machines.
Amazing work. Why can’t Apple, Vzmware, parallels or someone else do all of this when a single developer can. Sad.
Are there things like Ephemeral Virtual Machines that can be used in CI system?

Vagrant or Multipass would be my first guesses. There isn't anything else out there that is going to orchestrate VMs the way you want.

You can give Vagrant a go (https://www.vagrantup.com). It is pretty handy for spinning up/down development VMs without even leaving your IDE.

Installing Rust in a Raspberry Pi 3A+

And, for the record, if you ever need to do something cross falls down on and Docker isn't suited to (eg. some of my sites are on a shared webhost that uses FreeBSD), the simplest way I've found is to use Vagrant with a script like this to run inside Vagrant to copy the project in, trigger a build, and then copy the binary out.

Have a look at vagrant to spin up VMs quickly, then use 'em to do stuff like configure a salt environment - you could incorporate cron jobs here ;)

I was building a new version of YugabyteDB vagrant box with packer and virtual box. Because we (Yugabyte) have a new preview release out.
