Prettier is an opinionated code formatter.

To update or switch versions, run npm install -g prettier@latest (or @v2, etc).


These are the files / directories that are created and/or modified with this install:


If node is not found, it will also be installed.

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}'

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!
