This was an odd one, but luckily fairly straightforward to fix. It is one of those problems I’ve fixed multiple times but never wrote down the solution for next time I run into it.


I am trying to using single quotes setting in Prettier, however, the formatted keeps double quotes. What the heck is going on?!

I have created the .prettierrc file with this single setting:

"singleQuote": true
