Can you please add Github Copilot integration?

asked 2022-06-21 15:55:29 -0500

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.

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:
