Have you tried any local alternatives to Copilot?

I've been using Copilot from quite a while and would like to know what do you all use ... (*-*)

I have not, but I'm subscribed to this conversation โ€” I'd much prefer this avenue if there are good products, but I'm not aware of them.

I saw couple of them with 10K+ stars but I'm looking forward to what others have tried.

With local, do you mean open source model?
Open source model is not yet catch up with Open AI's GPT lineup (in terms of quality), but the one came close is DeepSeek-Coder models, you can find it on huggingface and github.
But of course, you need good computer to run that models locally.

But if you mean service similar to copilot that is free, it's Codeium.
Cursor is also a great free alternative, but it's a full blown text editor (fork of VSCode with AI abilities)

What do you mean by "local"? you want it to work with no internet connection?

maybe, it could be a good options for very very private projects. An offline and private gpt that could be trained with the project information.
Maybe not offline at all, but that stores all the context and conversations on local or own servers.
