First I tried Live Share, which did work but was a bit clumsy. Prettier's sole specialisation is to handle formatting of code and it does this job extremely well. Only works before elements, not inside tags or for text. Note that this setting does not have an impact on the first window that is opened. I tried the solution above but didn't work for me, unfortunately.
It would be okay if it took several saves, but instead the first save shows this behavior as well as every subsequent save. This will force a regular line selection and disallow the use of column selection mode. Can be simple, highlight and filter. You can also view the default values in the Settings editor. If you use a supported editor the best thing is to use Prettier directly from the editor, and the Prettier formatting will be run every time you save. You can also configure language based settings by directly opening settings. This number is relative to the font size.
On most non-retina displays this will give the sharpest text. Setup the test project Begin by creating a very simple Node project in a blank directory. It is an invaluable tool and it can be used alongside Prettier. Note that there are some cases where this setting is ignored, e. If you want Prettier to write the formatting changes you need to add --write to the options list.
What is causing this weirdness--are there multiple reformatters running? I resorted to running an instance of NoMachine with X forwarding. Search for Prettier - Code formatter.

Now when you save a supported file it will automatically apply your formatting preferences. Note: In case of a , workspace settings are located inside the workspace configuration file. If disabled, clicking anywhere on an inactive window will activate it only and a second click is required on the element.

These shareable configurations take the naming convention of eslint-config- and are simply npm packages that can be easily distributed. Now all you need to do is run npm run format to have Prettier format our code. I miss it every time I work on a project that's not set up with it. That can make it harder to use e. Now that we have the command as an entry in our npm scripts, we can use Prettier as a pre-commit hook using the excellent package. Helps to avoid ambiguity between inserting new lines or accepting suggestions.
