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.

I'll be honest, my approach to getting used to working with ASTs is a bit weird, but it worked for me. For some reason the thought of working with the TypeScript AST sounds really attractive to me. I'm sure most people recommend to start deep diving into babel first before getting used to working with an AST with the TypeScript compiler, but I started it the other way around. There is a great library called ts-morph that focuses on making it easier for developers to work with the TypeScript compiler. Learning hands on with ts-morph while getting used to their compiler api made babel much easier to understand without ever touching babel.

Those videos gave me a base for the task but I needed more sources to achieve it, so I read a lot of source code for other libraries built with babel-plugin-macros, read the plugin's authoring documentation and Jamie Kyle's Babel Handbook.
If you want to learn more about parsing, reading the code of an actual recursive parser might be a better idea. Esprima is a decent place to start if you're interested in JS grammar. Then you can look at the babel handbook to learn more about AST transformations. From there, the literature gets quite a bit more heavy. If you get this far and are willing to push further, you'll probably want to grab yourself a copy of the dragon book at a minimum.
