Autocompleting in the Code Editor

Auto-complete in the code editor allows parentheses and braces to be autocompleted when typing in the code editor. You can activate this function in your Account Settings under the IDE menu on the left side. You can also choose to default to block view in the editor when possible.

Autoformatting in the Code Editor

Auto-Format is available in all CodeHS Javascript programs. The formatter, Prettier, makes sure that all code conforms to a consistent style. Learn more about Prettier here.
