VSCode - Prettier does not format on save

Since recently the "editor.formatOnSave": true, is not working in my VSCode. Previously prettier formatted the code automatically on save and it worked… Any idea why it stopped working?

Obviously now you have to tell VSCode which plugin you want to use as default formatter.
Set this on in your settings.json

  "editor.formatOnSave": true,
  "editor.defaultFormatter": "esbenp.prettier-vscode"

Of course if you have installed the esbenp.prettier-vscode plugin 😉
