VSCode – write EPIPE error

This article focuses on a Windows fix. Uncrustify is one of the main code formatter being used for Salesforce development. It has been working fine so far but after a recent update for some reason, it stopped working. We started getting this error:

This happens due to missing Path to the uncrustify folder. Assuming you already have uncrustify installed as an extension on VsCode, the solution to this issue can be:Find where uncrustify is installed on your machine, on a Windows 10 OS, the default location is : C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Local\MetaPkg\uncrustify

  • Open your Environment variables
  • Add path to uncrustify to windows PATH and click save.

Go back to VsCode and try to use uncrustify again. This should resolve the Write EPIPE error on VS Code.
