Aside from issues with prettier, we get the occasional problem where changing the eol character(s) causes a file to show up in source control as if it's been changed.

Much worse, I used to write a bunch of BASH scripts meant to be run on both Linux and Windows machines (under Cygwin). Every so often, somebody would edit the file on a Windows machine, commit it, and then the script would fail to run on the Linux machines because of the line endings. Me and dos2unix got to be good friends.


Yeah, I had this same problem with Linux scripts at my old work place too.
