Usage

Add an order in prettier config file.

module.exports = {
  "printWidth": 80,
  "tabWidth": 4,
  "trailingComma": "all",
  "singleQuote": true,
  "jsxBracketSameLine": true,
  "semi": true,
  "importOrder": ["^@core/(.*)$", "^@server/(.*)$", "^@ui/(.*)$", "^[./]"],
  "importOrderSeparation": true,
}

APIs

importOrder

A collection of regular expressions in string format. The plugin uses new RegExp to evaluate regular expression. E.g. node.source.value.match(new RegExp(val)) Here, val is the string provided in import order.

importOrderSeparation

A boolean value to enable or disable the new line separation between sorted import declarations. The separation takes place according to importOrder.

experimentalBabelParserPluginsList

A collection of parser names for babel parser. The plugin passes this list to babel parser so it can understand the syntaxes used in the file being formatted. The plugin uses prettier itself to figure out the parser it needs to use but if that fails, you can use this field to enforce the usage of the plugins babel needs.

module.exports = {
  "printWidth": 80,
  "tabWidth": 4,
  "trailingComma": "all",
  "singleQuote": true,
  "jsxBracketSameLine": true,
  "semi": true,
  "importOrder": ["^@core/(.*)$", "^@server/(.*)$", "^@ui/(.*)$", "^[./]"],
  "importOrderSeparation": true,
  "experimentalBabelParserPluginsList" : ["jsx", "typescript"]
}

How does import sort work ?

The plugin extracts the imports which are defined in importOrder. These imports are local imports. The imports which are not part of the importOrder is considered as 3rd party imports.

After, the plugin sorts the local imports and 3rd party imports using natural sort algorithm. In the end, the plugin returns final imports with 3rd party imports on top and local imports at the end.

FAQ / Troubleshooting

Q. How can I add the RegEx imports in the importOrder list ?

You can define the RegEx in the importOrder. For example if you want to sort the following imports:

import React from 'react';
import classnames from 'classnames';
import z from '@server/z';
import a from '@server/a';
import s from './';
import p from '@ui/p';
import q from '@ui/q';

then the importOrder would be ["^@ui/(.*)$","^@server/(.*)$", '^[./]']. Now, the final output would be as follows:

import classnames from 'classnames';
import React from 'react';
import p from '@ui/p';
import q from '@ui/q';
import a from '@server/a';
import z from '@server/z';
import s from './';

Q. How can I run examples in this project ?

There is a examples directory. The examples file can be formatted by using npm run example command.

npm run example examples/example.tsx

Q. How to use the plugin with *.d.ts files ?

The plugin automatically ignores the *.d.ts files. We encourage you to declare the *.d.ts files in .prettierignore. (Read more here)[https://prettier.io/docs/en/ignore.html#ignoring-files-prettierignore].

Q. How does the plugin handle the first comment in the file.

The plugin keeps the first comment as it is in the file. The plugin also removes the new lines in between first comment and the first import. input:

// comment

import a from 'a'

output:

// comment
import a from 'a'

Q. I'm getting error about experimental syntax.

If you are using some experimental syntax and the plugin has trouble parsing your files, you might getting errors similar to this:

SyntaxError: This experimental syntax requires enabling one of the following parser plugin(s): ...

To solve this issue, you can use the new option experimentalBabelParserPluginsList in your .prettierrc and pass an array of plugin names to be used.
