The DB-Pilot extension is a powerful tool designed to assist developers in rewriting their code using artificial intelligence (AI). This extension leverages AI to generate alternative code based on the provided prompt, allowing users to explore different coding styles and approaches.
Code Rewriting : With the DB-Pilot extension, you can rewrite your code based on a prompt using AI. By providing a prompt, the AI generates alternative code that reflects different coding styles or approaches.
Comparison of AI-generated output : The extension also facilitates the comparison of the AI-generated code with the original code. This feature enables you to evaluate and analyze the differences between the two versions, providing insights into the potential improvements or variations.
To use the DB-Pilot extension in Visual Studio Code, follow these steps:
Install the Extension : Install the DB-Pilot extension from the Visual Studio Code marketplace. You can do this by searching for "DB-Pilot" in the Extensions view and clicking the "Install" button.
Access the Command Palette : Open the Command Palette by pressing Ctrl+Shift+P (or Cmd+Shift+P on macOS). This action opens a dropdown menu with various options.
Generate Code using AI: In the Command Palette, type "Generate code using AI" and select the corresponding option. This command activates the DB-Pilot extension and allows you to proceed with rewriting your code.
Provide a Feature Prompt: When prompted, enter a feature description or instruction that best reflects the changes you want in your code. Be clear and concise to guide the AI effectively.
Select the File to Modify: After providing the prompt, choose the file you wish to modify. This file will serve as the input for the AI-generated code.
Review the Output: Once the AI completes generating the alternative code, it will be presented alongside the original code. Review and analyze the differences between the two versions to gain insights into possible improvements or variations.
Save and Apply Changes: If you are satisfied with the AI-generated code, save the changes to the modified file. You can then utilize the new code in your project or continue refining it based on your requirements.
