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

Searchkick learns what your users are looking for. As more people search, it gets smarter and the results get better. It’s friendly for developers - and magical for your users. BONUS: it's written and supported by "ankane" who has flawless reputation amongst the Ruby community.
