Ignore just one statement with Prettier

Prettier works great for formatting your javascript. In general, it makes formatting something that you don’t have to think about anymore, but occasionally you’ll run across something that you want to format in your own custom way.

You can include a prettier-ignore comment to achieve this goal.

// prettier-ignore
const minesweeperMap = [
    'B', ' ', ' ',
  ' ', 'B', ' ',
  'B', ' ', ' ',
  ' ', ' ', 'B',

const bombs =     4;

When you run prettier on the above code, the declaration of bombs line will be changed to remove unneeded spaces, but the minesweeperMap declaration will be left unchanged.
