treesnip is a vscode extension that harnesses the power of GPT-4 for software development. It provides a codebase-aware coding assistant that helps developers with code optimization, testing, and more.
(primarily focused on TypeScript at the moment but I plan on adding more languages)

treesnip provides several context menu commands that can be accessed by right-clicking on the code in the editor. These commands allow you to interact with the assistant and perform various actions.
Context Menu Commands
Open Chat for Snippet: Right-click on a selected code snippet in the editor and choose "Open Chat for Snippet" to start a chat with the TreeSnip assistant specifically for the selected code and its dependencies. The assistant will provide suggestions and optimizations based on the selected code.
Open Help Chat: Right-click anywhere in the editor and choose "Open Help Chat" to start a help chat with the TreeSnip assistant. The assistant will provide general help and guidance based on the current workspace.
Build Tests for File: Right-click anywhere in the editor and choose "Build Tests for File" to generate comprehensive test cases for the current code file.
Minify Selection: Right-click on a selected code snippet in the editor and choose "Minify Selection" to minify the selected code. The assistant will optimize the code by removing unnecessary whitespace.
Opening a Chat
You can also open a chat with the assistant using the following commands (Cmd+shift+P &) :
treesnip.chat.free: Open a new freeform chat
treesnip.chat.snippet: Open a chat for a selected code snippet
treesnip.chat.help: Open a help chat
treesnip.chat.test: Build tests for a file
These commands can be accessed through the command palette (Ctrl+Shift+P or Cmd+Shift+P on macOS) or by clicking the corresponding icons in the TreeSnip view in the Explorer sidebar.
You can configure TreeSnip through the vscode settings. The available settings are:
treesnip.projectDescription: A brief description of your project
treesnip.testingSuite: The testing suite you want to use for your project
treesnip.ignores: A list of directories to ignore for semantic search
treesnip.additionalDetails: Any additional details that will help TreeSnip generate more accurate code snippets
