GitHub has launched a GitHub Copilot, a product that leverages AI to help you write code more efficiently. This AI tool can suggest lines of code and even sometimes entire functions. Trained on billions of lines of public code, GitHub Copilot puts the knowledge you need at your fingertips, saving you time and helping you stay focused.
GitHub has partnered with OpenAI to develop this tool that should improve productivity and make it easier to learn how to code. It has been trained on billions of lines of code — many of them are hosted and available publicly on GitHub itself. When you’re writing code, GitHub Copilot suggests code as you type. You can cycle through suggestions, accept or reject them. In order to figure out what you’re currently coding, GitHub Copilot tries to parse the meaning of a comment, the name of the function you are writing or the past couple of lines.
The image below shows how GitHub Copilot works.
Below are some key points on how GitHub Copilot benefits programmers:
- Convert comments to code
- Autofill for repetitive code
- Tests without the toil
- Shows alternatives for different approach
