This tool uses prettier.format() to format CSS. format() takes 2 parameters:

  1. text, which is what you input into the textbox
  2. options, which indicates specific format preferences like tab width and end of line characters.

Here's the code we use to format the CSS:

let initial = prettier.format(text, {
  parser: 'css',
  plugins: prettierPlugins,
  tabWidth: 2,
  endOfLine: 'auto'
});

We import Prettier from unpkg as follows:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/prettier@2.7.1/standalone.js"></script>
<script src="https://unpkg.com/prettier@2.7.1/parser-postcss.js"></script>
