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 bumper yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
Worst language you ever used? Really used not just looked at the manual.

Yeah, they don't have to be terrible. I haven't used it, but people in my circles tend to really like Shake, which uses a Haskell embedded DSL to describe builds.

You could try Shake. It's a sane build system written by a former co-worker of mine. https://shakebuild.com/

Shake does require compilation as it's essentially just a Haskell library providing a DSL and it works just fine, I guess in gradle's case it's a thing about Java-typical overengineering and complete blindness to resource usage. Shake's underlying engine can actually go head-to-head with ninja itself when building ninja files.

https://shakebuild.com/ agrees with you:
> Large build systems written using Shake tend to be significantly simpler, while also running faster. If your project can use a canned build system (e.g. Visual Studio, cabal) do that; if your project is very simple use a Makefile; otherwise use Shake.
For what it's worth, if I remember right, Shake has some support for interpreting Makefiles, too.
> [...] the way more complicated syntax of Shake [...]
For context, Shake uses Haskell syntax, because your 'Shakefile' is just a normal Haskell program that happens to use Shake as a library and then compiles to a bespoke build system.
