Enforcing Style

Enforce consistent style patterns with the command npm run prettify


"prettier": {
"arrowParens": "always",
"bracketSpacing": true,
"bracketSameLine": false,
"printWidth": 80,
"quoteProps": "as-needed",
"semi": true,
"singleQuote": true,
"tabWidth": 2,
"trailingComma": "all",
"useTabs": true
"scripts": {
// ...
"prettify": "npx prettier --write .",
// ...


HaTs projects are pre-configured to enforce style using prettier.

While enforcing code style may seem immaterial, these consistency refactors carry huge value adds:

  • Your git history on file-by-file basis is cleaner.
  • Your team members or contributors can quickly write features locally using whatever idiosyncratic patterns they like, and the final synced changes are automagically standardized.
