How to prevent js beautify in Visual Studio Code to expand JSON objects

In this quick tip I’ll show you how simple it is to prevent js-beautify in Visual Studio Code to expand JSON object. Of course, for those who use js-beautify plugin in Visual Studio Code and don’t want to automatically expand their JSON objects that they may have (for a reason) inlined.

If you’re currently not utilizing the .jsbeautifyrc file, then first create it in the root directory of your project. After this, just put this content in it:

    "brace_style": "collapse-preserve-inline"

Restart VSC and that’s it. More information about this ‘issue’ can be found in the official bug thread on Github.

Hope this helps someone ?
