Let's cut to the chase. I code, you code, we all love to code—but we can do it smarter with the right AI tools. Here's my no-nonsense list:
It's autocomplete on steroids. Helps me code faster and sometimes even smarter. Just don't let it comment your code for you; it's a bit too verbose.
And here is what I'm waiting for the most:
UI prototyping minus the PowerPoint nightmares. Drag, drop, done. React components without the theatrics.
Copilot's overachieving sibling. Code suggestions, nice PR like refactoring, and it even chats. It's like an IDE plugin crossed with a therapist.
Debugging? Surprisingly useful. Like having a rubber duck that talks back, but way more insightful.
No need to reinvent the wheel—or the neural network. Pre-built AI project examples that actually teach you something.
Test models like GPT 3.5, GPT-4, Llama and others without the API key hassle. A one-stop shop for prompt model comparison.
Automated JSON mocks. Because manually creating JSON mocks is as fun as debugging race conditions.
For when I need to write emails that don't sound like they're auto-generated. Ironically, they are.
Counts GPT tokens and even gives you the price tag.
Got a research question? Get an informed answer without skimming arXiv for three hours.
Documentation, but searchable and interactive. It's like Google, but it actually finds the answer in your project docs.
And there you go, no fluff.
