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.

Choose the data compression algorithm based on the specifics of your data. For example, if you are working with lots of short strings, take a look at [*SMAZ](https://github.com/antirez/smaz).*
Improving short string compression.

Take a look at this. Idea behind it seems nice, but it's fixed dictionary ("codebook") was clearly made for English language, and the algorithm itself is really simple. How can we impove on this? Dynamic dictionary won't do, since you have to store it somewhere, nullifying benefits of using such algorithm. Beyond that I have no idea.

Facebook's reputation is so bad, the company must pay even more now to hire and retain talent. Some are calling it a 'brand tax' as tech workers fear a 'black mark' on their careers.

Linux masterrace in a nutshell

You're having a breakdown. Relax. I'm just trying to have a conversation with you. Nothing personal to get emotional. Here are some resources. For tar, for gz, for xz, for webp, for 7z, for zstd, etc. But, some file extensions were developed for POSIX-like system and how do you expect them to work on windows 10 natively? Thankfully, the community has made it work even tho. It's like me crying over "can you run window$ exclusive application in linux with or without wine".

well... I'm trying to clone here only public repositories like ZSTD (https://github.com/facebook/zstd.git) ... but it lasts a second and nothing happens. Tried that even with different git versions.
If you are missing 7zip in windows 11 context menus then you should try NanaZip

I realise there is a lot of hate on Facebook, but they have contributed to open source initiatives. OpenGraph is widely adopted. One of their lesser known is zstandard. https://github.com/facebook/zstd
