Linting Prettier

Use Prettier to format your JS, CSS and HTML code.

This is part of the default open-wc recommendation


npm init @open-wc
# Upgrade > Linting


  • Install @open-wc/prettier-config.
    yarn add --dev @open-wc/prettier-config
  • Create prettier.config.js in the root directory of your project.
    module.exports = require('@open-wc/prettier-config');
  • Add the following scripts to your package.json
    "scripts": {
      "lint:prettier": "prettier \"**/*.js\" --list-different || (echo '↑↑ these files are not prettier formatted ↑↑' && exit 1)",
      "format:prettier": "prettier \"**/*.js\" --write",
  • Update your .eslintrc.js to look like this:
    module.exports = {
      extends: [

What you get

  • Apply formatting to JS files
  • Apply formatting to HTML inside of html tagged template literals used by lit-html
  • Apply formatting to CSS inside of css tagged template literals used by lit-element
  • Integration with ESLint to prevent potentially conflicting rules



  • npm run lint:prettier to check if your files are correctly formatted
  • npm run format:prettier to auto format your files

Linting Error Examples

$ npm run lint:prettier

↑↑ these files are not prettier formatted ↑↑

Simply run npm run format:prettier to format your files automatically.
