Prettier is an opinionated code formatter.

Updating prettier

npm install -g prettier@latest

Cheat Sheet

The core value of Prettier is not in what it gives, but in what it takes away: countless hours of bikeshedding over code style choices. Also, it makes git merges much nicer.

Prettify all web files in a project, recursively:

prettier --write '**/*{.md,.js,.html,.css}' --ignore ./dist

Tell Prettier which files to ignore every time

echo "./dist" >> .prettierignore

Tell Prettier which settings to use - do NOT use package.json when it's not necessary!

.prettierrc:

{
  "trailingComma": "none",
  "tabWidth": 2,
  "singleQuote": true,
  "proseWrap": "always"
}
