So does it mean that, I can't add semicolon without using prettierrc; no setting in snippets extension.

I mean In Visual Studio Code, press Control + Shift + P or Command + Shift + P (Mac) to open command palette and type setting and then select "Preferences: Open User Settings" option and then search for prettier semicolon

If you enable there, then there is no need of .prettierrc for adding semicolon

Thanks, it is working now.
So it means I need to use in combination of prettier(prettier semicolon setting true) + user setting ("editor.formatOnSave": true) to add semicolon.

No.only one of them is enough

It doesn't work without adding user setting ("editor.formatOnSave": true) for me. Only making a check at prettier(prettier semicolon setting true) doesn't add semicolon at the end after using snippets. Do you have any idea?

Sorry for misunderstanding your question. The first thing we did after installing the prettier extension is to check the checkbox for format on save so that's the main thing we need to do only once for your editor.

All other options will only work if that checkbox is checked and to automatically add semicolon on save, either you need to add the option semi: true in .prettierrc or check the checkbox to add semicolon in prettier settings

Yeah it is working after saving a file. But what I wanted is to add semicolon just immediately after using snippets.

You add all the snippets you want on separate line as I have shown in the gif in the article and finally when you save the file, semicolons will be added automatically.

I have also updated the article just now, for the steps to enable the semicolons under "Automatically add a semicolon at the end of the line" section

I mean, I want to add semicolon before saving the file.

The snippets extension does not add the semicolon automatically so you need to save the file to add the semicolons

Yeah, looks like that is the only possible way. Thanks for your sincere replies.
