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.
Re: Zlib memory corruption on deflate (i.e. compress)
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Mar 2022
There are already active zlib forks (e.g. https://github.com/zlib-ng/zlib-ng), the problem is with having people move to them. It takes a lot of effort to move mindshare from the original version to a fork, there's some historical examples of it happening, but not a ton.

Hi /r/java! Jetty is considering implementing dynamic Brotli compression, but the current JVM wrapper for Google's Brotli (jvm-brotli) is somewhat ... abandoned.7 projects | reddit.com/r/java | 18 Apr 2022
dabbling @epilot-dev with ______
3 projects | dev.to | 21 Mar 2022
Year 2022 marked an amazing start for me with a new stint with epilot GmbH based out of Cologne, Germany. I joined the team to be working on their micro-frontend architecture, with my primary focus going to be on the performance aspects of the applications. Like the first recent addition we did after I started was to add brotli compression to each of our micro-frontend (MFEs) bundles.

Disk space is cheap, is file archiving still relevant?

But the very same reasons keeps high the interest on compression field research: in example both Google and Facebook are actively investing on fast, scalable, and efficient compression for the content they store and serve.

Appwrite 0.7: Introducing Built-in Brotli Compression for Improved API Performance
2 projects | dev.to | 23 Feb 2021
Brotli is also a compression algorithm like GZIP. It is developed and maintained by Google and is best used for text compression. The reason being, it uses a dictionary of common keywords and phrases on both client and server-side and thus gives a better compression ratio. In version 0.7 of Appwrite, you can enable the Brotli compression for any JSON or text-based response. Actually, the new Brotli support has significantly improved the Appwrite dashboard loading times.
What are some alternatives?
Snappy - A fast compressor/decompressor
LZ4 - Extremely Fast Compression algorithm
zstd - Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm
LZMA - (Unofficial) Git mirror of LZMA SDK releases
ZLib - A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.
Minizip-ng - Fork of the popular zip manipulation library found in the zlib distribution.
brotlicffi - Python bindings to the Brotli compression library
uzlib - Radically unbloated DEFLATE/zlib/gzip compression/decompression library. Can decompress any gzip/zlib data, and offers simplified compressor which produces gzip-compatible output, while requiring much less resources (and providing less compression ratio of course).
