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.

In Haskell, you can do this with various trickery involving GADTs/constraints/singletons.

"Make invalid laziness unrepresentable" means you should use strict versions of container types instead of lazy ones. However, for better or for worse, sometimes the "strict version" of a data type is not actually a strict data type, it's just a strict API to the lazy type. Examples include Data.Map.Strict (not Data.Map or Data.Map.Lazy) or Data.HashMap.Strict (not Data.HashMap.Lazy) (sadly there is no Data.Sequence.Strict but perhaps there will be one day).

Edison and containers both have sequence types that support efficient, cons, snoc, viewL, viewR, append, map, and length.

Calling linked lists Haskell's "primary data structure" seems off-base to me. Yes, there's String, yes, there's built-in syntax for List... but there's also everything in containers, and vector is pretty easy to use in practice, though it would probably be good for more learning material to mention it more prominently.
Looking for projects that make heavy use of IntMap which have benchmarks

I asked this on the libraries mailing list but thought posting here would bring in potentially more responses. I made a recent change to the behaviour of lookup and find (see here for more details: https://github.com/haskell/containers/pull/800).

Rust has nothing on Haskell. containers, which might as well be considered part of the standard library, has been out for almost 14 years and is still 0.x

When I was first learning I did a bunch of leetcode/codewars to get familiar with the containers library and GHCI repl workflow. Then using Real World Haskell as a reference I implemented a few coreutils to play with IO.
