GitHub Copilot

Your AI pair programmer

GitHub Copilot uses the OpenAI Codex to suggest code and entire functions in real-time, right from your editor.

Trained on billions of lines of code, GitHub Copilot turns natural language prompts into coding suggestions across dozens of languages.

GitHub Copilot is an AI pair programmer that helps you write code faster and with less work. Copilot draws context from comments and code to suggest individual lines and whole functions instantly. GitHub Copilot is powered by Codex, a generative pretrained language model created by OpenAI. It is available as an extension for Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio, Neovim, and the JetBrains suite of integrated development environments (IDEs).

Snippet from Wikipedia: GitHub Copilot

GitHub Copilot (not to be confused with "Copilot X", the name of GitHub's "vision" for next-gen Copilot features) is a cloud-based artificial intelligence tool developed by GitHub (owned by Microsoft) and OpenAI to assist users of Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio, Neovim, and JetBrains integrated development environments (IDEs) by autocompleting code. Currently available by subscription to individual developers and to businesses, the tool was first announced by GitHub on 29 June 2021, and works best for users coding in Python, JavaScript, TypeScript, Ruby, and Go.
