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 SQLite may become foundational for digital progress
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 May 2022
Granted I'm the author, but until I get around to rewriting it from the ground up, I really think it saves a lot of time for editing single cells, querying, and viewing in a headless environment.
Bubble Tea: fun, functional and stateful way to build terminal apps

One of my favorite TUI frameworks. I made https://github.com/mathaou/termdbms with it. A very pleasant experience.

I made a headless sqlite dbms (not nearly as feature rich as the real thing) for my own embedded development. It can show the values of any table, view specific cells, update cells with a text editor interface, beautifies json, and takes in SQL queries as well.
Got some bugs with formatting complex lines of text, but it works well enough for me. I plan on porting to Rust one of these days.
Terminal cataloging/database application

Ok I thought some programming could be done. Clipper is very very high level, so extremely easy to use! What about this then? Still very low level tough!

Once I have finished documenting all of the existing API functions and structs, I will begin work on terminal rendering. While the API surface area will only be slightly increased (a single function to set some flags) the actual work will mean building a parallel renderer for both Linux and Windows. I will be looking into notcurses to see if it can make my life easier in this regard.

It can. See, for example, Notcurses:

For those interested in learning more about terminal emulators and character graphics, checkout Nick Black's book Hacking the Planet (with Notcurses): A Guide to TUIs and Character Graphics.
While the overall focus of the book is on programming with Notcurses, the author shares a wealth of related info and history throughout its pages. Note also that Notcurses has evolved quite a bit since the book was written, but it's still a nice resource.
Text UI components like “ncurses”

I've started using Notcurses and have been quite satisfied with it.

As already said, you can print ANSI escape codes to change colors/effects. But there are also many high-level libraries to create TUIs, such as FTXUI and notcurses

If your issue with Curses is its ancient and outdated API then you could look at NotCurses.
