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.
Help me break the fourth wall

Perhaps refined would help you? It lets you set constraints (i.e. "rules") for values / types. You get compile-time enforcement for constants and fallible methods for runtime values (i.e. Either[Error, RefinedValue]).
Simple, Naïve, and Wrong: More than you wanted to know about Scala Case Classes
3 projects | reddit.com/r/scala | 26 Feb 2022
This is more or less how derivation works when you want to use something like Refined types (it exposes Validate[Type, Refinement] typeclass if I remember correctly). Enumeratum exposes Enum[A], and newtypes expose Coercible[From, To].

You want either a refined type, a newtype, or if you are in Scala 3 an opaque type.

Option as type of field in case class

Additionally, I also like to use Refined, so that my names are actually NonEmptyStrings, and I'll usually go even farther and make a LastName type alias to NonEmptyString and a FirstName type alias to NonEmptyString so that I can legitimately return just Char as an initial, for example. That way parsing guarantees you're not just sending me empty stuff that is just as useless as an empty person, and also so that I don't accidentally put a FirstName where a LastName should go somewhere in my code.
Using refined to improve type safety and error reporting in Scala

I wrote a short piece on my company's blog explaining how we used refined to validate incoming data and parse it into more… well, refined types: https://engineering.contentsquare.com/2021/scala-refined-types/
Why there is still no ExpressJS-like alternative in Scala?

This example uses probably the most popular JSON library for Scala, Circe. There is another Scala library that lets us "be more specific with," or "refine," our types, called Refined. http4s doesn't provide any particular support for Refined, but Circe has a module integrating Refined, meaning that all of Circe's parsing, encoding, and decoding support is integrated with Refined. Putting together http4s' Circe support, Circe's generic codec derivation, and Circe's Refined integration, here's what I came up with:
Fp libraries that target scala 3 exclusively?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/scala | 22 Nov 2021
I know that libraries like Scodec and shapeless were rewritten practically from scratch for Scala 3, taking advantage of the next syntax and internals, as well as protoquill - a Scala 3 implementation of Quill.

That largely depends on the type system. Languages like Haskell and Scala which have much more powerful type systems than C/Java/Go/etc absolutely do allow you to do those sorts of things. It is a bit harder to wrap your head around to be sure and there are some rough edges, but once you get the hang of it you can get the benefits of static typing with the flexibility of dynamic typing. See https://github.com/milessabin/shapeless or a project that I've been working on a lot lately https://github.com/zio/zio-schema.
Scala3: Does it provide a simplified way of doing n-term generic parameters?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/scala | 6 Jun 2021
Just use cats and use the apply syntax .mapN for this. Seriously. There isn't a way to do it without generating source code that I can see in the api. Scala 3's HList Tuples aren't like Shapeless 2's HLists and I can't figure out a way in the api to reduce the tuple members down from (A, B, C, D) into an E, generically, yet with Scala 3 poly functions, unlike what you could do in Shapeless 2 with HList
Scala: A Love Story
4 projects | dev.to | 21 Apr 2021
Scala has sparked a huge ecosystem of very high quality libraries (Cats, Scalaz, shapeless, to name but a few). I think a major reason for this is that Scala attracts developers who value the advantages of the JVM, but are fed up with the limitations of the Java programming language and understand the benefits of an expressive type system and functional programming.

I also investigated shapeless3 macroses: https://github.com/milessabin/shapeless/tree/shapeless-3/modules, but they are more about derivation than reflection. And probably that is all I found.
[Scala3] Get the type of container with wildcard type (i.e. List[?])
1 project | reddit.com/r/scala | 1 Mar 2021
Well, that is sometimes possible, depending on a structure of Foo. If you have a List, for instance, you can iterate every element, and if every element is A, then it's safe to cast a list to List[A]. In fact, shapeless provides exactly that, in form of Typeable[List[A]], in a more generic form. I suppose shapeless also can derive a typeable instance for you, but I haven't dug into scala 3 version of it.
Why Learn Haskell?

I'm not sure where is the line between extensive and basic knowledge. Here is my more detailed exposure:
In commercial context:
* Of strongly typed ones only Scala (with [shapeless]). Can reluctantly throw in Kotlin as well for it's amazing structured concurrency.
In non-commercial context:
* Went through a few chapters of [Software Foundations] doing Coq proofs.
* Worked through most of the [Types and Programming Languages] (writing typecheckers in Ocaml)
* 3 services in Haskell (1 on Scotty, 2 on Servant). Loved persistent+esqueleto for the ORM layer, disliked Opaleye.
* 2 projects in PureScript (1 with Halogen, 1 with React bindings).
* 1 project in ReasonML (Ocaml).
> I am afraid there is no way back for me
I see where you are coming from. In my case I can alternate between "I want all invariants properly expressed and checked" and "I just want to ship that barely-working piece of junk and iterate on it". I learned to adjust depending on organization needs. IMO, for many orgs, especially startups/scaleups, the latter is often the more fitting way. With that in mind, I'm willing to trade the guiding hand of great type systems for other productivity aspects (amazing runtime and cohesive web framework in Elixir's case).
