This is a vote to support Github Copilot. Copilot is amazing, Wing IDE is amazing, so it should be a great match! Now that Copilot is released and I know the pricing is within reason, I plan to make it part of my development flow.

Right now I am using Copilot with Visual Studio Code on macOS, then cut-and-pasting the results into Wing Pro. It could be so much better! Let me know if you want a demo or need a tester.

Unfortunately for now we cannot do this. Github is not ready to work with us at this time, and they do not provide any documentation or support of any kind. While it might be possible to base something on existing open source integrations, these rely on 8+ month old undocumented beta quality binary-only components which we do not want to depend on. We will keep watching this and hopefully the situation will change.

What about replicode?

It might be a viable alternative to Github Copilot if I got replicode correctly :)

I'm not seeing how that's relevant and there hasn't been any work on it in 13+ months and most of it dates from 7+ years ago. We're looking at -- see to play with it. You don't have access to the codex coding-specific model unless you request the beta but the regular davinci model seems to know Python as well, in fact about as well as the codex model in my tests. I would love to hear from people that have actually used one of these AI completion solutions successfully. Maybe our code is atypical, but I've not seen any of them do much that I'd call useful (or more useful than just searching the web and finding a coherent explanation with examples). We're still planning on adding integrations anyway where ...(more)

Me also, plus GitHub Copilot got class-action lawsuit, which also hits openai, which powers github copilot :)

Noted, thanks. We are currently trying to find a contact at Github so we can get what we'll need to add an integration. It's unclear if they are already open to having other IDE vendors integrate copilot, but hopefully they are.

There is a neovim plugin for Github Copilot here: Maybe it could serve as an example for how to implement it.

Thanks. That might help.

Also FYI as of now GitHub's official answer to whether they will provide docs/etc for other IDE vendors to add integrations is "this is on our radar but we do not currently have a timeline". So it's a question of whether it's possible to craft an integration based on the one for vim and any other examples that are open source. I received this answer via private communication but also added a public discussion in case it ends up being helpful for others and/or leads to further insights or useful info being shared:

Any news on a Copilot integration for Wing IDE? I use Wing IDE as my main python development IDE and I'm forced to use VS Code just because of Copilot, that's how good of a tool it is to have. I personally do not like VS Code and I've been using Wing IDE for about 10 years now so It's hard to get used to a new IDE just because of a single tool, having to switch back and forth between the two IDEs is s another option but its annoying to do so.

Unfortunately there's no update on this other than the fact that the public discussion I started (link above) has apparently been deleted. We'll try to follow up and I'll post again if there's any further update.
