I use both: an increasing percentage of formatters and linters support .editorconfig so you can set the common basics there and not need to duplicate configuration for every tool you use on a project.

I’m in very strong agreement on using formatters, too, but I have mine run on-save. It’s slightly disconcerting at first but extremely relieving when you realize how long it’s been since you’ve talked about code style.

I agree, I love on-save formatting. Now I can just type code I know is syntactically correct, hit save, and let the formatter worry about the formatting.
