You will need to configure Caret to see the plugin as it will not automatically.  The following will help you configure Caret


You'll need to add the following to your api.json file, under settings menu. This plugin can pass the same options that JS-Beautify does in the 'options' tag. I left the default 'sampleMessage' in there for the example.  Note: the options in Pretty-JavaScript, these can be any of the options from JS Beautifier as this plug-in uses it and is just a wrapper for it to work in Caret.

	"sampleMessage": {
		"id": "extension id goes here",

Risk impact

Caret Plugin::Pretty-JavaScript is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Caret Plugin::Pretty-JavaScript may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
