  1. Install Prettier in VSCode (
  2. Open Settings pane (Command + ,)
  3. Make sure the Editor: Format on Save property is enabled (You can search and find the property in the search bar)
  4. Set the Editor: Default Formatter to Prettier - Code formatter

If format on save was previously not working for you, these steps should fix it. This is what fixed it for me :)
