    Pros:ย 

    Best printer of AST I've used in a long long time. Less configuration is a big plus as well. Huge community support behind it. Battle tested

    Cons:ย 

    Nothing for what it promises.

    Big fan of the Prettier project, the team behind it, and how it has easier configuration. Wish there could be WordPress support (CIP โ†’ https://ahmda.ws/2EPreSL)

    Pros:ย 

    No configuration, easy to set up, defaults everyone can agree on

    Cons:ย 

    Harder to tell that a project is using Prettier

    I'm not a Javascript developer so I love that Prettier makes generally good formatting decisions for me, freeing need up to think about the code. It's easy to apply Prettier to any project I'm working on, even if other proper in the project aren't using it.

    Pros:ย 

    Allows me to focus on the code instead of how it looks. ๐Ÿ™Œ

    Cons:ย 

    No built-in PHP support

    I absolutely love Prettier. At first, I was off-put by the fact that configuration is a second-class citizen. I quickly realized that's the whole point.

    Pros:ย 

    Remove need to manually format code again. Great to end code style wars in company.

    Cons:ย 

    Not everyone might initially like all formatting rules.

    It's awesome tool which should be used in every company doing JS/TS to speed up development, and remove need to care much about code style - which will be great by automated format.

  • Pros:ย 

    Simplifies life. No longer worry about formatting

    Cons:ย 

    None

    Everyone on the team can be on the same page about style and focus more on good quality engineering instead of styling nitpicks. Prettier works, is fast, and is extensible. It also supports other languages and file types such as TypeScript, .graphql files, CSS, and more.

    Pros:ย 

    Save time for formatting JS code.

    Cons:ย 

    Conflict with ESLint.

    As a frontend engineer, the code format is very very important to me. I used ESLint at first, and have to manually format every line of code. Later I found Prettier, it really save me lots of time. However, sometimes it will conflict with specific ESLint rules, in that case, you have to manually disable some ESLint rules in .eslintrc file in order to let Prettier handle everything.

  • Pros:ย 

    No worries about how code looks. Easily reviewing PRs, you see only meaningful changes.

    Cons:ย 

    Not found

    I believe it's must have for any projects (that can be formatted by this tool). The best way is configuring auto formatting by using husky + lint-staged + prettier tools.

  • Jan KillianSoftware Engineer
    Pros:ย 

    Never think about formatting JavaScript/TypeScript/JSX/CSS/GraphQL/Markdown/... again.

    Has good support in editors, IDE''s and command-line.

    Cons:ย 

    Could extend support to more styling/markup/programming languages ;)

    Using on all frontend projects. Saves our teams time by never having to discuss formatting again.

    Pros:ย 

    Achieves deterministic and robust code formatting via strong enforcement of code style opinions. A must for any JS team, small or big.

    Cons:ย 

    Actually nothing.

    Most likely the most influential project of 2017
