Why does Prettier not format code in VS Code?


How I've sorted it after having super huge frustrations with Prettier stopping working in VSCode.

  1. Select VS Code -> View -> Command Palette, and type: Format Document With
  2. Then Configure Default Formatter... and then choose Prettier - Code formatter.

This sorted the problem for me magically.

Depending on your case this might help you...


If doing what @Simin Maleki mentioned does not solve it for you, there is a chance that your default formatter is not set:

File > Preferences > Settings > Search for "default formatter" 

Make sure your Editor: Default Formatter field is not null but rather esbenp.prettier-vscode and that all the languages below are ticked. This fixed my issue.

Steps to enable default formatter

Also make sure that your format on save is enabled:

Format on save check


Prettier could also format your files on save.

However, installing and enabling does not result in working.

You have to check "format on Save" in VSCode: Setting >> User >> Text Editor >> Formatting
