We have been using Prettier at Hasura for the past two months for a few fairly large react codebases and it really solved our formatting issues. Combined with a pre-commit hook as well to ensure consistency across collaborators.
One gripe initially was that few of our devs didn't like the opinionated formatting but there wasn't anything to automate styling either! You will get used to it eventually.
Hope everybody embraces some form of code styling guide to improve productivity.
All my JS projects use prettier, my blog uses prettier, I can't wait for the day when all my native code also uses prettier. Removes a whole area of discussion from code review.

The other day when I was writing some Ruby code I realised how much Prettier has been spoiling me. I can't see myself not using this anymore
Amazing product - nice job! I have been using it for a few months, and really like it!
Use it all day! and in all my projects. Can't imagine not using prettier. Kudos to the Team! <3

Big fan of the Prettier project, the team behind it, and how it has an easier configuration. 💯
I played around with this for our React Native codebase but ended up going with ESLint (https://eslint.org/) and customizing the rules there. I like that ESLint will combine simple linting with code style in a non-automatic way.
Hi Product Hunt!
I started writing Prettier when I was working on another product (that I hope to launch on PH soon :)). I got so tired of formatting code and felt like it was slowing me down so much. Christopher (vjeux) joined early on and helped see it all the way through. I'm super excited with how far it's come and that it solved the problem so well! I honestly think it has helped my build my product faster.
Let me know if you have any questions about the history of prettier or how it works. I won't be able to respond for a few days, I happen to be leaving for a vacation where I won't have any internet right now. But I'll respond (or vjeux will) when I get back!
I absolutely love this product. Not having Prettier in other languages (Ruby, Swift) has driven me insane! I'm so spoiled by this incredible tool!
VS Code user on mac here. As I mainly do devops stuff in bash I’m wondering ... will Prettier format my bash scripts ?
If you're looking to make Prettier part of your CI, we automated it into StyleCI https://styleci.io.
