There's currently no way to stop the model from generating. You need to wait until it's done.
Closing the ChatIDE pane while the model is generating might lead to a non-recoverable error. You'll need to restart VS Code to use ChatIDE again.
Closing / re-opening the ChatIDE pane does not reset the messages history. You can reset the message history by clicking the "Reset Chat" button (don't do this while the model is generating!)
⚠️ This is an early prototype, use at your own peril.
🧐 Remember to keep an eye on your OpenAI / Anthropic billing.
ChatIDE continues to be built using ChatIDE.
