CodeAssist is an AI assistant / chatbot / copilot for programming. It generates, changes, completes the code and answers questions.
CodeAssist has a natural language interface, so you can talk to it like you talk to a human.
CodeAssist can see your code and can make changes in your code.
CodeAssist works with all popular programming languages.
After installing CodeAssist, you should have a new option "CodeAssist" (comment icon) in the activity bar on the left. Click it and it will open a chat window. Say "hello" and say what you want it to do for you.
Consider moving the "chat" window to the secondary side bar (View -> Appearance -> Secondary side bar, and then drag and drop the CodeAssist window into the secondary side bar).
You can also use Alt+X in the editor to generate completion of your code.
CodeAssist doesn't work offline, it sends the code to the server. You can find more information in the "FAQ" section of the CodeAssist website.
CodeAssist is free. It might become paid at some point.
Please keep in mind that it doesn't always generate correct code or give correct answers.
