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.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning CS Make yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
The most interesting C# / .NET blogs and websites

You can't do without source files when you want to better understand what is happening "under the hood" of a particular system. For example, do you want to improve your understanding of how types from the standard library work? The source code of .NET Framework and .NET will help you to do that. Do you want to dig deeper into the compiler? No problem - here is the Roslyn's source code at your service. Do you need to look inside the build system? Here you go - the MSBuild code is also open-source. By the way, if you are interested in build processes, you may also find MSBuild Structured Log Viewer useful. It's a tool that allows you to work with MSBuild build logs in a convenient format.
How can I set TEMP environment variable for MSBuild in csproj?

I have a .NET 6 project that includes some Exec nodes, and those commands are failing because (as in this discussion on the msbuild repo) the paths of the generated tmp.exec.cmd files are not whitelisted.
OWASP Top Ten and Software Composition Analysis (SCA)

At the moment, we plan to implement the specified functionality for the C# analyzer. It's easy to obtain the list of dependencies for a C# project. Roslyn helps us a lot — our analyzer is built on its base. To be more precise, the main factor is the use of the same build platform (MSBuild) and a compiler for all C# projects. At the same time Roslyn is closely related to MSBuild. This makes obtaining the dependencies list trivial.
WordPress Latin1 and UTF-8, Part 2

I hope one day Microsoft will deprecate their non-unicode API, remove that TCHAR mess. I think they supported these legacy APIs long ey already. There's still a problem with PATH_MAX, see, for example, the dotnet MSBuild. Maybe even switch to the UTF-8 instead.

Take a look at this issue. https://github.com/dotnet/msbuild/issues/2008
MSBuild has caused me years of pain, replacing it with Make is probably sensible. 👍

How do build events differ between Visual Studio for Windows and Mac?

MSBuild and the Roslyn compiler are cross-platform. So the short answer is yes.
