Prevent VS Code from Auto Formatting Flutter/Dart Code
By default, VS Code (Visual Studio Code) will automatically format your code when you save a Dart file. In general, this feature is useful and automatically makes your code cleaner, and has a consistent arrangement. However, there might be cases where this thing doesn’t fit your need.

Save the file, and your setup is done.
