Prettier dialog pops up when I save and does not complie

  • Hi All, I’ve been pretty excited to try out quasar but it seems I may have a config issue

    I’m following along with Danny video

    I just setup a new quasar app and editing the MainLayout.vue. But as soon as I try to add a style to the component and save I keep getting this dialog that stops the project from compiling.


    I have Prettier. Vutur and Eslint installed.

    my VS config, i have been trying to turn of settings to see if it will fix things but not sure whats wrong

        "workbench.colorTheme": "Community Material Theme Palenight High Contrast",
        "editor.fontSize": 18,
        "emmet.showSuggestionsAsSnippets": true,
        "cSpell.language": "en-GB",
        "editor.tabSize": 2,
        "workbench.iconTheme": "material-icon-theme",
        "prettier.singleQuote": true,
        "editor.formatOnSave": true,
        "editor.formatOnPaste": true,
        "prettier.trailingComma": "none",
        "prettier.printWidth": 100,
        "editor.defaultFormatter": "esbenp.prettier-vscode",
        "[javascript]": {
            "editor.defaultFormatter": "esbenp.prettier-vscode"
        "[vue]": {
            "editor.defaultFormatter": "esbenp.prettier-vscode"
        "": "C:\\Windows\\System32\\WindowsPowerShell\\v1.0\\powershell.exe",
        // "editor.codeActionsOnSave": {
        //     "source.fixAll": true
        // },
        // "vetur.format.defaultFormatter.html": "prettyhtml",
        // "vetur.format.defaultFormatter.js": "prettier-eslint"

    package.json is default as installed

        "yarn": ">= 1.21.1"
      "browserslist": [
        "last 1 version, not dead, ie >= 11"

    I do not have a eslint or prettier src files. (Should I is that the best practice?)
    Looking for some guidance. Do I need to add prettier into the pkg.json or is it my settings thats messed up?

    Thanks in advance.
