I second tiling window managers category. Shell of the Year too, though bash would likely win.

I think what zepherusbane means is "prompt-modifying software", like starship. Yet, there are more than enough of those.

Yes that's what I was referring to. Oh my zsh, oh my fish, starship, bash-it, etc. I would probably include something called "traditional" for the typical Bash PS1 filled in by a users own custom line.

I use Starship myself, I like that it is cross shell - I can use the same prompt with fish shell on my linux box and with bash shell on my mac using the same configuration.

"Cross-shell" usually ignores the tcsh (for which starship only recently grew support) and rc-based shells.
