GitHub Copilot is an AI-based tool that helps developers write code faster. It utilizes the OpenAI Codex to suggest code and entire functions in real-time, right from the developer's editor. Trained on billions of lines of code, GitHub Copilot can turn natural language prompts into coding suggestions across dozens of languages. It is able to provide suggestions that are tailored to the project's context and style conventions, allowing developers to quickly cycle through lines of code, complete function suggestions, and decide which to accept, reject, or edit.
Additionally, it integrates directly into several popular editors including Neovim, JetBrains IDEs, Visual Studio, and Visual Studio Code, making it fast enough to use as you type. With GitHub Copilot, developers can spend less time creating boilerplate and repetitive code patterns, and more time on what matters: building great software.
