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.
Why I enjoy using the Nim programming language at Reddit.

Another example of Nim being really fast is the supersnappy library. This library benchmarks faster than Google’s C or C++ Snappy implementation.

It doesn't destroy performance for the simple reason that nowadays memory access has higher latency than pure compute. If you need to use compute to produce some data to be stored in memory, your overall throughput could very well be faster than without compression.
There have been a large amount of innovation on fast compression in recent years. Traditional compression tools like gzip or xz are geared towards higher compression ratio, but memory compression tends to favor speed. Check out those algorithms:
* lz4: https://lz4.github.io/lz4/
* Google's snappy: https://github.com/google/snappy
* Facebook's zstd in fast mode: http://facebook.github.io/zstd/#benchmarks
What's the best way to compress strings?
6 projects | /r/cpp | 29 Jul 2021
What are some alternatives?
zstd - Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm
LZ4 - Extremely Fast Compression algorithm
brotli - Brotli compression format
ZLib - A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.
LZHAM - Lossless data compression codec with LZMA-like ratios but 1.5x-8x faster decompression speed, C/C++
LZMAT - git mirror of LZMAT (http://www.matcode.com/lzmat.htm)
Minizip-ng - Fork of the popular zip manipulation library found in the zlib distribution.
zlib-ng - zlib replacement with optimizations for "next generation" systems.
