    PowerShell: https://github.com/dahlbyk/posh-git/blob/master/src/GitPromp...

    I believe this is clean Bash code and clean PowerShell code, and a script with a certain complexity. The functions inside the Bash script are documented using comments, the ones inside the PowerShell script are documented using "structured comments" (similar to javadoc/xmldoc/...). The parameters of the functions inside the PowerShell script also contain metadata which is used to provide completion on the commandline and similar functionality as the command line flags you demonstrated.

    I just learned about 'getopts' in Bash, which you can actually also use to implement parameters to a Bash function. So what you are showing on a script level, can also be applied for functions. Did not know about that.

    Still, not saying PowerShell is better than Bash in a Linux context, but it seems a lot of Linux users have a gut reaction to right out reject PowerShell. I think it does have some advantages for certain use cases, like more complex scripts, a cross-platform context, ... and of course, for someone with a .NET background it's easier to program more complex things with it.

    Starship is pretty slick, but I feel like it's lacking in the customization department. It's easy to get it to display whatever you want, but hard to get it to show it exactly how you want it. If you want a "powerline" style prompt, that's basically impossible in Starship (although it's one of the most upvoted feature requests). Or using color gradients on the prompt - I have this 16.7M color display, why am I limited to flat colors? Finally I'm a big fan of posh git, and Starship doesn't have the ability to display anything like this natively. I used a custom command to run a modified version of posh-git for a long time, but it wasn't very fast.
