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.

I'm the opportunity to mention my project that implements a language that is inspired by, and is mostly compatible with APL. It has some major differences, such as being lazy evaluated and providing support for first-class functions.
It also supports defining syntax extensions which is used by the standard library to provide imperative syntax, which means you can mix traditional APL together with your familiar if/else statements, etc.
At this point there isn't much documentation, and the implementation isn't complete, so I'm not actually suggesting that people run out to try it unless they are really interested in APL. I just took this opportunity since APL is mentioned so rarely here.
There is an example of a graphical mandelbrot implementation in the demo directory, that may be interesting.
Why am I wasting time on EndBASIC?

This post mirrors my feeling on this topic as well. Just like the author, I'm also working on a programming language which will not be used by a lot of people.
In fact, having a lot of users would make things complicated as I would have to stop making incompatible changes if I want to try something new.
Designing your own programming language is such a nice hobby, and something I believe a lot of programmers do. In fact, I would like to see links to other people's programming languages, just to see what people are playing around with at the moment.
