Pre-Commit Hook

You can run pretty-quick as a pre-commit hook using husky.

For Mercurial have a look at husky-hg

yarn add --dev husky

In package.json, add:

"husky": {
  "hooks": {
    "pre-commit": "pretty-quick --staged"


CLI Flags

--staged (only git)

Pre-commit mode. Under this flag only staged files will be formatted, and they will be re-staged after formatting.

Partially staged files will not be re-staged after formatting and pretty-quick will exit with a non-zero exit code. The intent is to abort the git commit and allow the user to amend their selective staging to include formatting fixes.

--no-restage (only git)

Use with the --staged flag to skip re-staging files after formatting.


When not in staged pre-commit mode, use this flag to compare changes with the specified branch. Defaults to master (git) / default (hg) branch.


Filters the files for the given minimatch pattern.
For example pretty-quick --pattern "**/*.*(js|jsx)" or pretty-quick --pattern "**/*.js" --pattern "**/*.jsx"


Outputs the name of each file right before it is proccessed. This can be useful if Prettier throws an error and you can't identify which file is causing the problem.


Prevent git commit if any files are fixed.


Check that files are correctly formatted, but don't format them. This is useful on CI to verify that all changed files in the current branch were correctly formatted.

Configuration and Ignore Files

pretty-quick will respect your .prettierrc, .prettierignore, and .editorconfig files, so there's no additional setup required. Configuration files will be found by searching up the file system. .prettierignore files are only found from the repository root and the working directory that the command was executed from.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
