    ⏩ The easiest way to code with any LLM—Continue is an open-source autopilot for VS Code and JetBrains

    Hi HN,

    Code Llama was released, but we noticed a ton of questions in the main thread about how/where to use it — not just from an API or the terminal, but in your own codebase as a drop-in replacement for Copilot Chat. Without this, developers don't get much utility from the model.

    This concern is also important because benchmarks like HumanEval don't perfectly reflect the quality of responses. There's likely to be a flurry of improvements to coding models in the coming months, and rather than relying on the benchmarks to evaluate them, the community will get better feedback from people actually using the models. This means real usage in real, everyday workflows.

    We've worked to make this possible with Continue ( and want to hear what you find to be the real capabilities of Code Llama. Is it on-par with GPT-4, does it require fine-tuning, or does it excel at certain tasks?

    If you’d like to try Code Llama with Continue, it only takes a few steps to set up (, either locally with Ollama, or through TogetherAI or Replicate's APIs.

  • copilot.vim

    Neovim plugin for GitHub Copilot

    I use copilot in neovim[1]. It was remarkably simple to get installed. Highly recommend


  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • llama.cpp

    LLM inference in C/C++

    You can cobble together an OpenAI-esque server locally with llama.cpp:

  • uniteai

    Your AI Stack in Your Editor

    [UniteAI]( I think fits the bill for you.

    This is my project, where the goal is to Unite your AI-stack inside your editor (so, Speech-to-text, Local LLMs, Chat GPT, Retrieval Augmented Gen, etc).

    It's built atop a Language Server, so, while no one has made an IntelliJ client yet, it's simple to. I'll help you do it if you make a GH Issue!

  • ChatGPT.nvim

    need to mod to use copilot or ollama
