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


    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.

    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


    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 → https://ahmda.ws/2EPreSL)

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


    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.

    Allows me to focus on the code instead of how it looks. 🙌


    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: 

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


    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.

    Save time for formatting JS code.


    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: 

    Simplifies life. No longer worry about formatting



    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.

    Turn my ugly code into a beauty!


    It’s not automatically built into every code editor

    It’s truly an essential for modern developers.

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

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


    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.

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


    Actually nothing.

    Most likely the most influential project of 2017
