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.

Formal Verification Methods in industry
4 projects | reddit.com/r/compsci | 31 Jan 2022
When you say "formal verification methods", what kind of techniques are you interested in? While using interactive theorem provers will most likely not become very widespread, there are plenty of tools that use formal techniques to give more correctness guarantees. These tools might give some guarantees, but do not guarantee complete functional correctness. WireGuard (VPN tunnel) is I think a very interesting application where they verified the protocol. There are also some tools in use, e.g. Mythril and CrossHair, that focus on detecting bugs using symbolic execution. There's also INFER from Facebook/Meta which tries to verify memory safety automatically. The following GitHub repo might also interest you, it lists some companies that use formal methods: practical-fm
TLA+ Action Properties
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 31 Mar 2021
I've started working on doing TLA+-style models but using Python as the language for doing so (disassembly and all) with an easier to deploy model checker.
Super super early and I'm not quite yet ready to announce it, so don't expect miracles (or post it everywhere) but if you're reading this comment and want to see hacks in this space...
