How to set Husky 4

Hello guys, so this post is just a followup for a post I made at the beginning of 2020, and I recently updated it

What is husky

So basically husky is "Git hooks made easy" and we are going to use to automatically format all of our code that is staged for our commits, so we are going to use the "pre-commit" hook to run pretty-quick a simpler way to run our prettier scripts with configuration

Installing packages

npm i -D husky@4 pretty-quick
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

that's it...

Setting the scripts

{
// all of your package.json
  "husky": {
    "hooks": {
      "pre-commit": "pretty-quick --staged"
    }
  }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Wrapping up

This is the simplest and quickest way to have "automatic formatting" on our commits, next time you run a commit, you will have a message something like this:
Husky output
Not much to say but to leave any questions on the comments and I hope you find this post really helpful.
