Being able to format your file is great and all but it won’t always look nice depending on who you ask. Some might instead refer to a 3rd-party application / website to do so.
Some key features would be changing the spacing (default is 2 as of now), whether or not functions should go to the next line and a way to apply these formatting settings to multiple files at once.
It should work more as a 1-time “set up” than a per-use filter so we can set our settings account-wide (or project-wide) and simply format the file with these settings as opposed to selecting them each time we want to format our files.
I’d love to see it happen.
Edit: you have my actual vote as well.
Hey @Thana and @Pufferfish101007,
Glitch uses Prettier for formatting code, and it is possible to configure Prettier with your own options. To do so, you need to create a file named
.prettierrc in your project and add all your custom config. See how you can configure Prettier here: https://prettier.io/docs/en/options.html.
tabWidth: 4, // set indentation spaces to 4
useTabs: true, // use tab instead of spaces
printWidth: 100 // the number of characters to be used in a line before going on to the next line, default is 80
Hope this helps!
