    I picked up standard[1] a while back for this reason, I don't want to have to think about it. It works fine, I have no complaints (took me a while to get used to not using semi-colons but now I prefer it) Same reason I use `cargo fmt` as well.

These guides provide recommendations for code formatting and naming conventions, but they are not as strictly enforced as the Java coding standard.
