Code Style Assistance in HTML

ReSharper provides the following code style assistance features in HTML:

Managing and applying code formatting rules

An important aspect of code style is how to format the code, i.e. how to use whitespaces and blank lines to arrange and separate code blocks, whether and how to use tabs for indents, whether and how to wrap long lines, etc.

The extensive set of ReSharper code formatting rules has a default configuration that takes into account default Visual Studio formatting options as well as numerous best practices. You can configure every detail of formatting rules and enforce the rules in your code. These rules are applied when ReSharper produces new code with code completion and code generation features, code templates and refactorings. The formatting rules can be also applied to the existing code in the current selection, current file, or in a larger scope up to the entire solution.

ReSharper stores formatting preferences using the mechanism of shared settings. You can configure formatting rules in options pages under the Code Editing | HTML | Formatting Style group. You can also store and share formatting settings in .editorconfig files.

Normalizing quotes around attribute values

HTML specification allows you to use both dingle (') and double (") quotes for attribute values. It is a good idea to stick to the same quote style within your project or solution. To do so, you can configure your preference on the Code Editing | HTML | Code Style page of ReSharper options. To enforce this preference in the existing codebase, run code cleanup with the 'Full cleanup' default profile or with a custom profile where the corresponding option selected.
