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.

Tokay Programming Language
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 May 2022
I am very interested in this project as a "better awk" is something I have often fantasized about.
I read all of the documentation that's available on https://tokay.dev/tokay-docs/, but unfortunately it never really... describes itself? Many sections, including the section on "parselets" are just unwritten. "Consumable" values are mentioned but never described (there is a "stub" section that doesn't really explain what the term means).
It begins with a pretty detailed description of value "severity" but doesn't really motivate why the concept exists. (I think that it's (basically) a way to very concisely discard certain matches? When there are "more important" matches around them?)
There are no examples of how I could use Tokay to "parse" something -- there are lots of examples dotted through the docs, but none of them demonstrate working with structured file formats, and they feel a little bit contrived.
I'm not complaining here: this project is not making any false claims about its status, the docs are clearly and explicitly unfinished, it is very clear that Tokay is still under active development.
But I want to learn more about it! I came away from that with a sense that, this has the potential to be really useful to me, but without any concrete evidence to support that. I guess the next step is to download the source and start reading through the tests.
All this to say: please highlight some examples showcasing situations where Tokay shines! (Parsing CSVs containing quoted strings was making the rounds recently, right? What does that look like in Tokay?)
Oh, actually, the GitHub readme has an example that is more involved than any in the documentation: https://github.com/tokay-lang/tokay

Rock v0.2.1, a little native toy language I've made with Rust and LLVM.

This should be a good use-case for rust-based scripting languages, I think.
I loosely followed a project of that kind a while ago, I don't quite remember if it was Gluon  or Dyon . Not sure if these are still active, or if another competitor showed up in meantime.
Dynamic language extensions for Rust?

Or if you wanted something more Rust-native, you could try Gluon.

These are the scripting languages i saw recently gluon, gleam, dyon, rune, mun. I like mun most because it resembles rust most. There is also this and this thread.
What are some alternatives?
duckscript - Simple, extendable and embeddable scripting language.
rune - An embeddable dynamic programming language for Rust.
mun - Source code for the Mun language and runtime.
actix-web-grants - Authorization extension for actix-web to validate user permissions
pen - The parallel, concurrent, and functional programming language for scalable software development
Poly-Engine - Universal 2D engine with integrated visual programming language written in C#
hlua - Rust library to interface with Lua
dyon - A rusty dynamically typed scripting language
truck - Truck is a Rust CAD Kernel.
rust_lisp - A Rust-embeddable Lisp, with support for interop with native Rust functions
wu - 🐉 A practical game and data language
