CodeAssist is an AI assistant for programming that uses natural language to chat with users like human assistants. It can access and make changes within the open file of the editor and execute actions such as opening files.
The AI assistant is based on GPT-4, has long-term memory, and generates code completions for all popular programming languages.
Despite being an early version, CodeAssist presents powerful features such as the generation of code aware of functions or classes in other files; however, it has some limitations, such as occasional mistakes or its long response time.
CodeAssist is a natural language chatbot AI assistant that writes code and answers questions for users within their editor.
It processes users' code at the CodeAssist API and sends it to OpenAI API, which may use the content as necessary to comply with applicable law and enforce policies but not to improve its services or models.
In order to access CodeAssist, users need to sign up, and the service is not free, but users receive free credits at the beginning. To install the plugin, users require specific steps for each IDE but receive continual improvements on the horizon.
