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.

Show HN: Make 3D art in your browser using Lisp and math

No; Bauble doesn't know how to "rasterize" SDFs into meshes; it only knows how to raymarch them. It's theoretically possible, but it's a pretty complex problem that would take me much too long to figure out and implement. So Bauble is relegated to just making pretty pictures for now. If you want to produce meshes using SDFs, check out https://libfive.com/
Antimony – computer-aided design tool from the Lisp machine parallel universe

This is a mid-point in Matt Keeter's research.
then Antimony (see the article at: http://hackaday.com/2015/05/29/otherworldy-cad-software-hail... ), then the current effort:
(and also see: https://www.gitlab.com/kavalogic-inc/tovero "a binding of Libfive to Common Lisp, including a standalone REPL-based viewer"[https://github.com/Irev-Dev/curated-code-cad] can be integrated with https://www.gitlab.com/kavalogic-inc/clive
Currently I'm using OpenSCAD (w/ BlockSCAD as a front-end: https://www.blockscad3d.com because I prefer a sort of visual representation), but have been stymied by the lack of file I/O (I want to write out G-code).
Still looking for a 3D modeling tool which is:
- a node or block editor

What happened Tovero (libfive bindings) and Clive (scene graph and 3D GUI) from Kavalogic and previously hosted on common-lisp.net?
3 projects | /r/Common_Lisp | 24 Jan 2022
From another random git commit I found it it seems the project moved to being hosted on gitlab.com under the account name "kavalogic-inc" but all the repos got deleted: - https://gitlab.com/kavalogic-inc
Tovero 3D Modeling system - where is it?
2 projects | /r/lisp | 21 Dec 2021
A recent question on AutoCAD lisp pointed to the libfive C++ library with C bindings. It's GitHub page points to the Tovero 3D Modeling system (link on Gitlab). That project is not found on Gitlab.
