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.
Scala Multiplatform. Across the Universe

Who said FP was mandatory? Scala is not Haskell, nor Lisp! If you don't like effect systems and all, don't use them. The choice is yours, actually. Kotlin's coroutines aren't better than what Scala offers. You can even use async/await in Scala. IMO, if you get yourself in a "callback hell" with Scala, then you're not using it properly. For comprehensions are easy to understand, and work with Futures, for instance.
I love Scala but I can't stand:

In Search of the Best Functional Programming Back-End: 2021 Update
4 projects | dev.to | 24 Jan 2021
I’ve specifically had 2 job offers internally at my company because of this language. First with Cats and Scalaz and now with ZIO, Scala has taken the best parts of Haskell, the best parts of Scala, and made it really nice to work with. You can barely see the OOP leftovers.
What are some alternatives?
cats - Lightweight, modular, and extensible library for functional programming.
Shapeless - Generic programming for Scala
Ammonite-Ops - Scala Scripting
ScalaTest - A testing tool for Scala and Java developers
Monocle - Optics library for Scala
Chimney - Scala library for boilerplate-free, type-safe data transformations
refined - Refinement types for Scala
scribe - The fastest logging library in the world. Built from scratch in Scala and programmatically configurable.
Enumeratum - A type-safe, reflection-free, powerful enumeration implementation for Scala with exhaustive pattern match warnings and helpful integrations.
better-files - Simple, safe and intuitive Scala I/O
Each - A macro library that converts native imperative syntax to scalaz's monadic expressions
