GitHub CoPilot’s Capabilities
Isn’t the goal of a developer to maximize productivity? Why not utilize a potent tool to enhance your productivity?
GitHub CoPilot provides suggestions and autocompletion thus automating repetitive tasks. While it won’t write the entire code according to your exact specifications, it can still be a valuable time-saver, particularly when it comes to catching unintended syntactical errors. By preventing you from spending your productive hours fixing minor mistakes that you may have inadvertently made, it allows you to focus on more meaningful tasks.
Understanding Natural Language
One of the most impressive capabilities that I found is that it is able to understand the plain English language and generate code for you.
For example, if you want to write a code to filter nonmatching data from two JSON objects then you can simply type the text in the form of a comment and it will give the code.
//Filter out non matching personIDs from teamMembers and assignmentExists const filteredTeamMembers = teamMembers.filter((e:any)=> !assignmentExists.find((n:any)=>n.dataValues.PersonID === e.dataValues.PersonID));
Helps in Reducing Errors
Better Quality Of Code
So these are few of the capabilities that this tool offers. While there are still a few limitations as well but it is still powerful enough.
You can explore this tool by creating a free account for 2 months after which it will charge you. If you are using Visual Studio Code editor, then simply install the extension and start coding.
