well, you see, I have no objections against using a "beautifier" tool.
Only that I personally don't need it. I type everything manually, each
character and space carefully and am a little bit pedantic about order.

But I understand that other developers are used to having an automatic
formatting -- so why not, if it follows the CYBOI style guide.

Please feel free to use any tool you like and integrate it into your IDE
or use it as standalone tool. However, I will not invest time into the
concrete tools, since each developer has other preferences.

But if you like, we may save the corresponding scripts in e.g.:
(or similar)

What I CAN provide is a style guide. In fact, there already was one:
I've just updated it now.
