First of all thanks for the latest stable releases 馃挊

Would it make sense to add a Who uses prettier? section to the readme?

@vjeux mentions in his talk that it might be hard to convince your team to use prettier. Maybe it is easier to convince someone, if he sees that the big "players" use it.

A list of possible/current big players would be:

  • facebook (react, jest, create-react-app, immutable.js) [1] [2]
  • babel [1]
  • netflix [3]
  • red badger [2]

Some more:

  • large parts of
  • all zeit js projects
  • haul soon react navigation
  • growing % of mapbox
  • playstation now
  • glamorous
  • gatsby
  • starting to get momentum inside of Spotify
  • thimble/brackets
  • react native app of Khan Academy
  • babili
  • some projects at Uber
  • pretty heavily at MLS (Major League Soccer)
  • one internal project at Zoho
  • all teams of new platform

If I put together a PR for this, would you want:

  1. Just a list of the names? (maybe formatted into 2 columns with a table)
  2. A list of logos for some of the bigger names on the list?

I guess the big question is do we need to ask permission to put a company's name on the list? Or if we can verify through npm dependencies, is that enough???

As unfortunate as it is, I think having a list of ~10 recognizable names is going to be the most impactful. And yes, we need some sort of public acknowledgment that they are using it. Either a tweet by an employee or reaching out to them and asking if they'd be up to it.

We are now using it @opentable for the OpenComponents project -> opencomponents/oc#507 and love it!

Thanks 馃挴 for it 馃挊

My proposal would be names (or logos?) for the most commonly known (by my standards - no offense).

@vjeux probably can stand surety for:

  • react
  • jest
  • yarn

Then we have these OSS projects:

  • babel (Is @hzoo d'accord with naming it on the prettier README?)
  • zeit (@rauchg tweeted evidence. Okay with naming zeit in README?)
  • webpack (At the moment webpack-cli. Is @sokra fine with naming it in the README? )

Maybe we should leave out, as there are no OSS projects of my knowledge, that use it:

  • khan acadamy
  • netflix

AND a link to this issue, so that people can get an overview over everything else?

TL;DR I think react, jest, yarn, babel, zeit and webpack are big enough to stand alone on the prettier README ;)

@leipert sorry, didn't see this until now. Go for it!
