I already have BetterSnapTools, but it lacks some features which I liked on my old Windows laptop (I had AquaSnap installed, which actually has a lot of great features which I miss on the Mac).

Recently I heard about "Yabai" and "Amethyst" which are more "techy" to install and use, but seem to have more in-depth features. So far, I couldn't find any comparison of them at all, so I thought I'd ask this more "general" question and it would be great if we can collect the pros and cons.

I will update this question with relevant information.

Yabai's wiki has a comparison table of yabai and amethyst.

yabai vs. amethyst

However, they do consider this table incomplete and ask for contributions to the wiki to make it a good comparison table.
