Template Literals are Strictly Better Strings

This has been making the rounds again after being a year old. Easy sell for me, template literals solve a lot of annoying problems.

Thoughts about using prettier

“All code style, including all formatting, is something developers should worry about - the more you lean on autocorrect to fix your spelling, the less you understand about the language you’re writing - this is true both in prose and in code.”

This is the same position I’ve had when discussing the adoption of prettier. I want to understand the reasoning behind a formatting decision. You don’t really get that with prettier when it’s done for you. I love people discussing the pros and cons though.
