Which is the prepered indentation? Tabulations of 2 or 4 spaces? Convert tab. to spaces?

You usually have rustfmt, that does the right job

@Albibek it's to configure the editor

I've tried to find the style guidelines document, but it's somehow absent in the docs now
I think you could run rustfmt with default options to see what it does, but afaik, the common practice is to integrate the rustfmt itself to the editor

also they say
By default, Rustfmt uses a style which (mostly) conforms to the Rust style guidelines. There are many details which the style guidelines do not cover, and in these cases we try to adhere to a style similar to that used in the Rust repo. Once Rustfmt is more complete, and able to re-format large repositories like Rust, we intend to go through the Rust RFC process to nail down the default style in detail.
