Many frameworks and libraries offer defaults - e.g. default folders to store data etc.
In general, go with them.
Case in point, I made a mistake in going against the Rails defaults with
webpacker, installing to
app/webpacker instead of
app/assets. I wanted the
small win of more logical naming, but it came at the cost of broken integrations
- e.g. installing
actiontext was very difficult, costing me half a day in mucking around.
