Code explanation extension for Visual Studio Code.
Generated by ChatGPT

Code-GPT is an AI-powered extension for Visual Studio Code (VSCode) that provides users with instant explanations for their code within the code editor.

Code-GPT allows users to save time and increase their coding understanding and efficiency, as well as improve their coding skills with in-depth code analysis.

The extension is easy to install and use; users can select the code they want to understand, open the Command Palette, type “Explain Selected Code” and enter their email address if prompted.

Once the response is received, the explanation is prepended to the selected code in the VSCode editor. Code-GPT is developed by VaibhavAcharya, a web developer and AI researcher, and is available for free.

Code-GPT was manually vetted by our editorial team and was first featured on February 9th 2023.

There are maintenance problems with this project - they might have to do with the fact that the OpenAI API key originally used to get the project up and running is no longer in use. I'm happy to change my rating once this problem gets fixed :)
