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.

AFAIK, Websockets are built on HTTP. Have a look at https://github.com/uNetworking/uWebSockets.
Just another simple, fast, and resilient open-source WebSockets server. 📣

It is written in TypeScript and at its core uses uWebSockets.js, a really, really! fast WebSockets server that is written in C (and you can see the benchmarks on uWebSocket's repo)

Replace boost beast http server code with uWebSockets (https://github.com/uNetworking/uWebSockets). This gives a much nicer interface, and makes it easy for us to add websocket support for clients in the future.
A Raspberry Pi 4 serving 100k HTTP req/sec
3 projects | reddit.com/r/node | 18 Feb 2021
TLS/HTTPS is off topic. It is not a part of the test scenario described in the article. Yes, the library does contain relevant code but it's not used and it's off-topic in the context of this thread. You know that it's disabled by default, there is no HTTPS certificate generated and used.3 projects | reddit.com/r/node | 18 Feb 2021
You are trying to draw a parallel to a placebo clinical trial and make a point that in the performance tests described in the article the library plays the role of the vaccine so it is the library which explains the performance difference. Therefore the library is good. If someone comes to this conclusion which you call 'Logical' then the article has achieved its intended purpose of promoting the library.

Being meticulously optimized for speed and memory footprint, µWebSockets is fast enough to do encrypted TLS 1.3 messaging quicker than most alternative servers can do even unencrypted, cleartext messaging.
