Create a GPT chatbot for any GitHub repo in 30 seconds.
Generated by ChatGPT

CodebaseChat is a tool developed by Context AI, allowing users to create a GPT chatbot for any GitHub repository swiftly and efficiently. This tool offers compatibility with all major programming languages.

This tool operates by cloning and crawling the user's GitHub repository to create an indexed file that can be uploaded to OpenAI's GPTs or Assistants.

This method circumvents the file limit issue faced by these retrieval features that can only handle a 20-file limit at a time. Suitable prompts are recommended to utilise the file fully.

An example from Context AI involves indicating to the GPT about the codebase contents. CodebaseChat is an open-source platform, inviting contributions in the form of code modifications or changes.

If the user does not have ChatGPT Plus, the repo file can be uploaded in the OpenAI Assistants Playground and used with the GPT API free tier, facilitating questions regarding their GitHub repository.

However, it doesnt currently support private GitHub repositories. Future feature requests can be submitted using the provided form.
