Usage

Whenever someone includes a JavaScript code block in a comment, it will be formatted using Prettier.

Before: Before

After: After

You can disable formatting per-comment by writing <!-- prettier-github disable --> anywhere in the comment (except code blocks)

Limitations

Due to lacking GitHub APIs, Prettier GitHub currently doesn't format reviews, review comments and commit comments. See #11

Configuration

Prettier GitHub will use the prettier field in the package.json of the respective repository for configuration. See Prettier's readme for available options. Additionally, you can set langs to an array specifying which languages should be formatted.

Example

package.json:

{
	...
	"prettier": {
		"singleQuote": true,
		"useTabs": true,
		"langs": [
			"js",
			"javascript"
		]
	}
	...
}

This will enforce single quotes and tabs, and will only format code blocks marked as js or javascript.

  2. Install ngrok for localhost tunnelling

  4. Set up a webhook for your testing repo
    1. Set Payload URL to the ngrok URL
    2. Set Content type to application/json
    3. Set a Secret and note it down
    4. Select Let me select individual events; then check Commit comment, Issue comment, Issues, Pull request, Pull request review and Pull request review comment and uncheck Push
  5. Copy .env.example
    1. Set GITHUB_TOKEN to the personal access token generated earlier
