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.
The Curse of NixOS
35 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 24 Jan 2022
Many of the necessary fixes do end up getting pushed upstream, though, thinking especially of stuff like converting CMake projects to use the GNUInstallDirs standard, so there is a benefit to the strictness work that extends beyond even just the Nix community itself.
Of course, sometimes those kinds of changes just never get merged, for a variety of well-understood open-sourcey reasons, eg: https://github.com/pocoproject/poco/pull/3105
Higher level threading in C++
1 project | dev.to | 29 Apr 2021
This is why I generally prefer Threadpools, or a producer-consumer pattern. Both these patterns require a queue that contains the jobs or units of work. Worker threads will continually try to read items from such a queue and process the item. There are some libraries that offer threadsafe queue's and/or threadpools, such as poco, QT or boost, but it's actually fairly simple to implement your own, using only the STL. So let's implement one now!
How and where I can learn about Web sockets, APIs, Wrappers to connect with my C++ code?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/Cplusplus | 19 Apr 2021
Depends. I'd recommend spending 15 minutes browsing the documentation for sys/socket.h so you know enough of the basics, and then get started with a high-level framework depending on your needs. libcurl is amazing, but might not be optimal for your use-case. It might also be worth considering learning Boost.Asio or the new experimental::net proposal for C++23. If you need a major, integrated solution as part of a larger app already using a toolkit, POCO or Qt can work well. ZeroMQ is also amazing for specialized cases.
