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.

Going with docker might be easier, because there's x11docker. You'll need to write a Dockerfile that installs dependencies and builds your application, which might seem daunting at first, but is very useful for a developer to have a reproducible build process, and that's what it provides.
Harden and secure browsers in containers, with GUI

My first docker container from an app market. How do I use this?
1 project | reddit.com/r/docker | 7 Oct 2021
You can run desktop GUI apps via an X socket - https://github.com/mviereck/x11docker is an implementation to make that easier. You won't find many images out of the box that will have a GUI - it very quickly comes to odds with some of the core value propositions of containerisation (i.e. how do you scale a GUI app by adding containers?).

That said, would there be any benefit of keeping the x11 session in a separate pod vs adding that container to the same pod (such as x11docker*)?

Putting Ubuntu on mine, but plan on trying other distro's in docker using x11docker. Fun times ahead!

Checkout x11docker, it can be a little tricky to get things setup but it worked great when I was trying to run a Qt app in a Docker container.
My VR Hell on NixOS
3 projects | reddit.com/r/NixOS | 3 Dec 2021
The underlying Wayland protocol needed to allow direct mode for HMD has been merged as an official Wayland protocol a few months ago. Sway and Wlroots both already support it, though both have not received a release since then, so you would need to run Git master there. XWayland (which is required for SteamVR) has a pending merge request (which will probably be merged in the next few days) that implements the required feature. I am running my Valve Index in VR since I switched to Wayland in February this year. The Vulkan extension you mentioned in the post is just a fallback in case the X server (or in your case XWayland) doesn't support drm-lease. I never saw that extension in action so I don't even know if it works at all on Linux.
1 month on a Linux desktop

The topic makes for some pretty spicy reading 🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️ but to cut a long story short, at the time of writing (22/08/2021), Nvidia's proprietary drivers don't fully support an API called Generic Buffer Management (GBM) - A more or less universally agreed upon API required most Wayland compositor libraries (like the official version of wlroots, used by swaywm) and supported by more or less every other hardware manufacturer's drivers. This means quite a lot of modern desktop environments aren't supported properly when you're using an Nvidia GPU.

And there are at least three actively maintained compositors based on wlroots. Sway being the most popular, the one for which wlroots was initially developed for.
I believe that there won't be too many incompatibilities, because there are 3 (4, including weston) wayland compositors developed (Gnome's, KDE's & wlroots based), all three of them having their own use cases. Using protocol extensions only useable on one compositor would limit the app to a subset of Linux Desktops (and mobile), so if possible, most apps won't use them.
PS: I just remembered one case of fragmentation: Activity Watch, a tool to keep track which apps are used how long and to track idle times, won't be able to support Gnome (mutter), because Gnome dev's won't implement the necessary freedesktop protocol extension. Sway (and KDE?) does, so it works on them. One solution would be to write a Gnome Shell extension, but yeah, it's not as easy as on X.org (reason being privacy, in this case).
