pretty-quick: A Great Code Formatting library

Posted on: July 22nd, 2022 by Olu No Comments

Hi folks,

In this post I will talk about a nice code-formatting tool for your web applciations, useful if you use JavaScript, HTML, etc. It’s called pretty-quick.

pretty-quick runs Prettier on your changed files. That is, if you use a version control system like Git and you change some files, pretty-quick will run Prettier on the changed files so that they have a nice format. Information about this library can be found here.

What excites me the most about this library is when using it as a pre-commit hook. This can be done easily using Husky. A guide for this can be found in the link above.

So, if you want nice consistent code formatting for your front-end web application source code, I recommend pretty-quick.

That’s all for now. Till next time, happy software development.
