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.
I made my first GL project using Piston.

Check out their homepage, https://piston.rs, they even show off some great examples of how their library has been used!4 projects | dev.to | 29 Jan 2022
So, I made a Tweet not too long before I made this post, and it was me showing off my first OpenGL project using Piston. And I attached two images.
Emulating the Sega Genesis - Part II
5 projects | dev.to | 12 Jan 2022
Before I could implement the display output, I needed something to draw the images onto. There are quite a few Rust crates available to create a GUI window and update it with 2D graphics. Most of these are of course intended for making games, and also include ways of getting key presses as input, which I'll also need. I looked at Piston, which I've used before on other projects, Macroquad, which also supports web assembly as well as desktop targets, Pixels, which is intended specifically for 2D games, and Minifb, which is also specifically for 2D applications, but is much simpler. I also tried out libretro, which is specifically made for video game emulation, but I found it much more restrictive than the others because of it's narrow focus.
I'm a "low-level, terminal-only" kind of developer, completely new to the game dev world. I've been working on a 2D platformer in my spare time. Can you explain to me what I'm missing out on, by not using a "game engine"?

Depends on my goals. I year ago I wanted to learn rust, so I used piston for a gamejam. (There are several rust engines including bevy, piston, amethyst. They probably vary in quality, features, and constraints.) Piston was a terrible experience because compilation is slow even on that tiny project.

Rust Game Engines (again)

Is there any 2d only game library with high stuff. I think it would be light-er than bevy and won't crash my PC. Like pygame for python for an instance, supporting collision and stuff in Rust!!!!?

I've also used GGEZ and heard good things about Tetra.
Minimal graphics crate for Rust

Looking for an open-source project to join part-time

and speaking of game engines, tetra is a really nice one. it's kind of the opposite of bevy - it doesn't tell you how to architect your game, it just gives you some basic graphics/input/audio tools, and you're on your way.
What are some alternatives?
bevy - A refreshingly simple data-driven game engine built in Rust
ggez - Rust library to create a Good Game Easily
Amethyst - Data-oriented and data-driven game engine written in Rust
rust-sdl2 - SDL2 bindings for Rust
RG3D - 3D and 2D game engine written in Rust [Moved to: https://github.com/FyroxEngine/Fyrox]
specs - Specs - Parallel ECS
macroquad - Cross-platform game engine in Rust.
Silent-Gear - Modular tool/armor mod (formerly part of Silent's Gems)
Coffee - An opinionated 2D game engine for Rust
gdnative - Rust bindings for Godot 3
