It's free-ish. It's proprietary SAAS, so it needs an Internet connection to run and will fail if the developers decide to make it fail, for whatever reason.

It's interesting tech, and I used it a year or so ago in Vim for about a month before getting fed up with some of its idiosyncrasies and falling back to regular omni-completion.

Yes, of course, is still imperfect. I've used it for a couple of months with a full enterprise project and nowadays is more "smart" than the first days because it has learned from my patterns and naming conventions.

Is based on deep learning so it needs a lot of data to learn and improve itself, I think it could be really useful on non-typed languages like JS.
