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.

Languages are not all equal nor do they all function in the same way, and that's not my opinion.
the power of Cython or the Python C FFI is that it allows you to script/glue modular native code.
You then state "C++14 may have been ratified 7 years ago but it's not the target code your build chain spits out"
no, a C++ COMPILER spits out assembler code that then gets assembled and linked into an executable.
The C++ or C code corresponds directly to a given set of assembler instructions which correspond directly to CPU instructions.
You claim that Python programming of microcontrollers is mainstream, but this is not true nor possible. Python SCRIPTING of code modules (that cannot be written in Python) is certainly one way to assemble a system from pre-built legos.
If you refer to knowing what I'm talking about as gatekeeping and egoism, might I suggest that you insist less forcefully in the correctness of incorrect things you state? we could be done with this spat in short order if YOU would refrain from speaking falsehoods. lies.untrue things.
I look forward to your lisp c compiler. make sure that it's 100% lisp from the bottom up, or I'll consider you're having ceded my point. Consider that the lisp you author in has a garbage collection system that lisp cannot have written originally, nor has any semantics for the underlying memory structures of, but hey, I guess if one is committed to pretending that all languages are equal for all tasks, who am I to question ones self-identification with a given language.

Take a look at Wren if you want a similar looking embeddable scripting language. It was created by Bob Nystrom (who now works in Dart). It’s a lovely language.

Have you looked at Wren? Being embeddable is a primary use case.
I want to make 2D games as a hobby. But I've noticed that easy engines like Gamemaker have their own meme little languages. Is there a popular and simple 2D language that uses an actual programming language like Python or something?

Luxe uses the Wren scripting language, and has its own APIs on top of that. It also has a graphical editor, and a modular design where people can create modules which you can include in your project to extend the engine's capabilities.
