Scribe AI is an extension for Visual Studio Code that allows programmers to use ChatGPT or GPT right inside the code editor. The extension provides AI-powered assistance to enhance and automate coding.
Programmers can use the AI programming assistant for various tasks such as understanding complex code, modifying and improving code, and generating comments for code.
Users can highlight a piece of code and use the plus icon to open a chat window to start talking with Scribe AI just like ChatGPT. All conversations are saved in the workspace as notes.
The extension's latest update includes features such as Ask AI, where programmers can type any question related to their code and get a response from the AI.
Users can also use the AI Edit feature to modify their code according to their instructions. The note-taking feature allows programmers to add notes inside conversations that are not sent to the AI.
Settings can be changed to switch between ChatGPT and GPT and change API keys. However, currently, the extension is using Codex instead of ChatGPT's official API due to reliability issues.
Overall, Scribe AI is a useful tool for programmers looking to automate and enhance their coding experience with AI assistance.
