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.
Most performant way to build an analytics dashboard from a relational database backend that only stores numeric values, where the data the end-user sees is "categorized" into numeric brackets (e.g. 60-79 = Med, 80-100 = High, etc)

I run a large scale production application that does something along these lines. If the data needs to be close to real-time, I'd say use `searchkick` + Elasticsearch, and use `searchkick`'s async feature to "stream" the data from your table to the ES index. Your dashboard will then just query from the ES index via searchkick.

You're right, that's actually what we implemented, application-level hooks, but they needed development and maintenance effort that come for free with the adapter we're using for OpenSearch integration, which also comes with welcome features: synonyms, partial matches, and many others.
Spoiler, the adapter is Searchkick: https://github.com/ankane/searchkick

On the backend, we'll need a few tools. Apart from the classics (ActiveRecord scopes and the pg_search gem), you’ll see how the (yet officially unreleased but production-tested) all_futures gem, built by SR authors, will act as an ideal ephemeral object to temporarily store our filter params and host our search logic. Finally, we’ll use pagy for pagination duties.

Tips for optimizing pg_search?
2 projects | /r/rails | 14 Apr 2021
Hey guys. Looking to release an app for mobile that will be using a rails API. The app will heavily rely on search. I know the go-to is to use elasticsearch but wanted to see if there was enough user demand for the MVP before shelling out $50/mo for the heroku add on. In the mean time I've been using pg_search. From the eye test it's performing okay but will be adding a table that houses over 350K records. With this in mind I was wondering if you all had any tips for increasing the overall speed for search from the model and controller level. Also should note that I'm open to any other free search gems if they deem bette fit.

There are two basic search configurations with pg_search, a Single Model search scope or a multi Model configuration. In my case I am only using the Single Model configuration, but you can read more about multi-search in the documentation.
