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.

Todos: The Hard Parts

But still, frontend development is pretty damn hard! And that makes sense. Web applications can have interfaces as complex as IDEs and data exchange layers as complex as distributed databases.
A Simple Way to Build Collaborative Web Apps
I haven't yet done this but based on some research it seems to me like the core of any collaborative app today is easiest served by picking some CRDT library.
My basic assumption is that as long as you put all your relevant data into one of these data structures and have the CRDT library hook into a server for storing the data, you're basically done.
This may be a simplistic view of the problem though. For example I've heard people mention that CRDTs can be space inefficient so you may want/have to do periodic compaction.
I've used YJS and can strongly recommend. https://github.com/yjs/yjs
Built a Google Docs like rich text collaborator for a client on Express/Psql and React. Worked like a charm (the hardest part was dealing with ports on AWS tbh).
That's a really nice tutorial. However, most of collaborative apps mentioned in the beginning operate on documents where merging concurrent edits by different users is more of a problem, and there's a really nice tool for that problem: CRDT (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conflict-free_replicated_data_...) and even ready to use libraries like Yjs (https://docs.yjs.dev).
Of course, there's a lot of very senior HN users who already know about it. I only mention it because I never explored these tools before, learned about it a couple of months ago for the first time in my life and was really impressed.
Kanban board in one HTML using localstorage

For shared use and remote storage, I'd consider using CRDTs like yjs  for instance.
Should be pretty easy, local-first, and allow synchronous as well as asynchronous collaboration and syncing. Even p2p over LAN, webrtc or whatever (I'm unsure how to do local peer discovery in a web browser, on the desktop you'd simply use link-local multicast/avahi (DNS-SD)).

Logseq exists to increase the knowledge output of humanity.
We're building a better environment for learning and collaboration. We're currently building a neuron inspired knowledge base/personal knowledge assistant that captures, synthesizes, searches, and creates knowledge as fast as you think–a digital extension of your brain. We don't think in pages and folders, but today's tools do. It's slowing us down. Logseq gets you to answers and smarter decisions faster.
A Leader in the Tools for Thought space
We're a leader in the Tools for Thought space (with a unique focus on privacy and data ownership)––delivering on the pioneering work of Douglas Englebart, Alan Kay, Bret Victor, Vannevar Bush, and more. We're continuing the mission of augmenting human intellect and collective intelligence with computers, discovering novel UI + HCI and superpowers to do so :) More on our mission here: https://adventurous-ragdoll-1e0.notion.site/Who-is-Logseq-2c...
Ownership and Autonomy
As Logseq's first designer, you will immediately have substantial ownership of the feel and functionality of the product. We're building a new way to think, which requires considerable tradeoff consideration and thoughtful user driven design. You will own our first design systems, early design processes, foundational product decisions and more. We're aiming to build a new knowledge tool for billions of people to change the world: empathy, systems thinking, intense level of polish are prerequisite.
If you're passionate about Tools for Thought or making humanity smarter, would love to hear from you!

Starting with Markdown
4 projects | reddit.com/r/archlinux | 24 Nov 2021
Obsidian is a good recommendation. I also recommend checking out logseq. It's a journal note taking app similar to obsidian. Supports both markdown and org mode and it's also open source unlike obaidian.

I have been using logseq (https://logseq.com/) for some time now and have been in love since I started using it. This one also looks interesting.
[Appfluencing] Logseq for notes + Obisidan for writing
1 project | reddit.com/r/Cortex | 19 Nov 2021
Maybe Grey at al. should consider taking a look at Logseq for notes and then keeping Obsidian for writing, I've found the combo to work quite good, even though Logseq is still in beta and under heavy development. It's an outlining tool, sort of "Notion meets Roam under Org-mode for Emacs".
