Anyone knows a free alternative?

tabnine is the best free alternative right now.
But I'm using github copilot for free through github student's pack

Because it isn't mentioned in the benefit of Github Student pack's benefits. It is written somewhere on the copilot page

I tried it, it's... okay. Definitively doesn't compete with github's copilot but it's decent!

I was using kite for sometime. But it was bit slow compared to Git copiolet.
