PrettierNew

Prettier is an opinionated, automated code formatter for JavaScript (with growing support for other languages). By enforcing its own opinionated formatting style it increases consistency and readability and reduces developer effort both on formatting and engaging in wasteful team debates about code style. Even though you may disagree with the stylistic choices enforced by Prettier, we find that the benefits to the team generally outweigh small style issues. Prettier can be used with a precommit hook or an IDE plugin. As with any formatter, a one-time reformatting of your codebase can confuse your version control history, but we feel that's a minor drawback. We particularly like the way Prettier flips the linter-based approach and, borrowing from gofmt, instead of validating your code, it ensures that your code will always be valid.
