Consistency among any styling choice is always going to be the most important decision!
Styling choices are irrelevant unless they're consistent.

I find myself preferring automatic formatters like Prettier over linters to avoid all the headache. When using auto-formatters, one should always make sure everyone else is using the same thing or else git commit logs will be obscured by a ton of semicolon insertions and whitespace, making it hard to read exactly what changed.
