Top 5 alternatives to GitHub Copilot for budding programmers

JavaScript, Python, TypeScript, Go, Ruby and more frameworks and languages are supported by the tool. We’ll look at some open-source alternatives to GitHub Copilot in this article.

Microsoft released Copilot, an AI programmer, last month in conjunction with OpenAI. Copilot is based on OpenAI Codex, an open-source code-trained AI system. It uses docstrings, function names, comments, and previous code to contextualise a situation in order to generate and recommend the most applicable code.

JavaScript, Python, TypeScript, Go, Ruby and more frameworks and languages are supported by the tool. We’ll look at some open-source alternatives to GitHub Copilot in this article.

1. Asm-Dude
Asm-Dude is a Visual Studio addon that highlights assembly syntax and completes code in assembly files and disassembly windows. Syntax highlighting and descriptions, documentation links, code completion, code folding, structure help, and label analysis are some of the important features.

2. Atom
Atom is an open-source text and source code editor developed by GitHub for macOS, Microsoft Windows, and Linux that supports JavaScript plugins and embedded Git Control. It is based on Electron (formerly known as Atom Shell). Electron is a cross-platform desktop application framework based on Node.js and Chromium. Atom’s beta version 1.0 was released six years ago. CSS, HTML, and JavaScript can all be used to customise it.

3. Captain Stack
Captain Stack is comparable to the code suggested by GitHub Copilot. Instead of employing AI, it sends your search query to Google, which returns StackOverflow answers and auto-complete suggestions. However, it only works with VSCode and is set up as a VSCode extension, making it a Copilot counterpart.

4. Clara
Clara is a VSCode plugin that replaces Github Copilot. It supports around 50 programming languages and provides developers with snippers right away.

5. GPT-Code-Clippy
GPT-Code-Clippy (GPT-CC) is an open-source version of GitHub Copilot, a language model based on Github code that is publicly available. It is based on the GPT-3 protocol. GPT-VSCode CC’s extension may be found here. GPT-CC models have also fine-tuned GPT-2 and GPT-Neo models.
