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.

Apple Announces Full Swift Rewrite of the Foundation Framework
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Jan 2023
You could take a look a swift-nio (https://github.com/apple/swift-nio) which is a pretty high-throughput system. swift-nio does this using some reference-counted GC where it simplifies the code and doesn't affect performance. Otherwise, value-types are used which incur no GC overhead (unless they are copy-on-write, and backed by something that requires reference counting).
Are there any examples of major or highly complex software written solely or at-least primarily in Swift?

The UI and the Core are mainly written by Swift. The proxy server is powered by Apple Swift-NIO. Some critical parts (deal with low-level system APIs, high performant JSON Parser, de/compression, protobuf, BoringSSL,...) are written by Objective-C and C. For some parts that deal with Pointer, or C library, I continue using Objective-C since it's easier than using a bunch of Unsafe Swift classes (UnsafePointer, UnsafeMutablePointer, UnsafeRawPointer, etc)

> Why should they? That isn't their target audience.
Because they need it?
Apple discontinued macOS server, i bet they use Linux in some of their servers
All their networking related libs are available and tested for Linux [1, 2]
Let's not forget that they package Swift for Linux, and now also for Windows 
Swift is crossplatform language (you not wanting to understand it doesn't change this fact), it's not a macOS framework
What is the simplest way to have local http server in iOS app?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/iOSProgramming | 20 Apr 2022
I would look at NIO or something that uses it, like https://diamantidis.github.io/2019/10/27/swift-nio-server-in-an-ios-app
Update app from external source (maybe?)
2 projects | reddit.com/r/swift | 7 Apr 2022
i use swiftnio to spin up http servers. lots of documentation online. your app logic will be the same as ios but without swiftui and uikit.
Any tutorials you recommend for URLSession?

Depending on what you need, SwiftNIO might do the trick.
Is there a reliable swift package for running a tcp connection from an ios app ?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/SwiftUI | 16 Sep 2021
If you want something a little more robust for a low-level TCP connection, you can also use SwiftNIO.
