Custom Model Selection

We hear you and have now added model selection of OpenAI's GPT family (3.5/4/4o) and Anthropic's Claude 3 family (Haiku/Sonnet/Opus) to the search panel.

The Pro tier will have unlimited access to all models except Claude Opus (10 times per day). The free tier will have unlimited access to GPT 3.5 and Claude Haiku.

Web Mode/GitHub Mode/Chat Mode

Everything you loved about Devv so far β€” the next-gen search engine for developers, will become Web Mode. Web Mode browses the web for you to provide accurate and up-to-date answers.

When you toggle on "Expert Mode," Devv will take a multi-step reasoning process comprising thinking, understanding, and categorizing to give you better answers for those most complex questions.

GitHub Mode empowers you to have a more contextualized and concentrated experience in interacting with a connected codebase.

We have also added a NEW Chat Mode for you to directly chat with the models for use cases like writing documents, brainstorming, code refinement, etc.

The best part of a next-gen development workflow is in one place now.

Enjoy the new Devv and happy coding!

Devv GitHub Mode now supports custom selection of public Python repositories.

GitHub Mode enables you to directly connect to GitHub repositories, providing a new level of interaction with your codebase.

To get started, simply switch to GitHub Mode and select your desired repository. Devv will then perform the necessary indexing process. Please note that for more complex and larger repositories, the indexing process may take a few minutes. Once the indexing is complete, you can start chatting with your codebase.

GitHub Mode empowers you to:

  1. Gain quick insights into open-source and source-available projects:

    1. Understand the project structure and architecture

    2. Explore the functionality and purpose of different modules

    3. Discover how the project has evolved over time

  2. Resolve complex code issues efficiently:

    1. Receive simplified explanations of intricate code segments

    2. Obtain relevant code snippets that demonstrate problem-solving techniques

    3. Gain clarity on challenging concepts and algorithms

  3. Generate new code based on the existing codebase:

    1. Leverage the context of the connected repository

    2. Create new functions, classes, or modules that seamlessly integrate with the existing code

    3. Adapt and extend the codebase to meet specific requirements

All of this is possible within the context of your connected repository.

As part of the public beta, GitHub Mode will continue to expand its functionality in upcoming updates. Future enhancements include support for connecting to private repositories and additional programming languages.

Experience the power of GitHub Mode NOW on Devv.AI today and unlock a world of possibilities for your projects!

May 21st 2024

New

We’re excited to announce the public beta of GitHub Mode on Devv, our AI-powered search engine tailored for developers. This new feature enhances your coding experience by directly connecting to your GitHub repositories. With GitHub Mode, you can query, retrieve, and generate code directly from your repositories, facilitating a deeper understanding of complex codebases.

What is GitHub Mode?

GitHub Mode is designed to provide seamless interaction with your GitHub repositories. It enables developers to ask questions, search for code snippets, generate code, and gain insights into complex code structures, all within the context of the connected repo.

Key Use Cases

Quick Insight into Open Source Projects

GitHub Mode empowers developers to swiftly gain a comprehensive overview of unfamiliar open source projects. By highlighting key libraries and recurring coding patterns, it helps identify redundant or outdated code, optimizing development efforts and enabling developers to concentrate on innovative solutions rather than duplicating existing functionalities.

Example: Rapidly acquiring a foundational understanding of the Flask framework, focusing on its core components and usage patterns.

Resolving Complex Code Issues

Navigate the complexities of legacy or intricate code with GitHub Mode, which simplifies difficult code segments into easy-to-understand descriptions. This capability is crucial for developers working under strict deadlines or those needing to quickly resolve software bugs or operational issues.

Example: Exploring and clarifying how scaffolding is implemented within the Flask framework, making it easier to modify or enhance the setup.

Code Generation Based on Existing Projects

Utilize GitHub Mode to create new code segments that are informed by and compatible with your existing codebase. This not only ensures consistency and adherence to project standards but also accelerates the development process by reusing established patterns and solutions.

Example: Generating new module extensions or features in a project, using the existing code structure as a guide for maintaining style and functionality consistency.

How Did We Build GitHub Mode?

To create this powerful feature, we developed specialized indexers for each programming language to perform in-depth analysis of code repositories. These indexers:

  • Understand the structure of the entire repository from a high-level perspective.

  • Analyze the relationships between functions and parse Abstract Syntax Trees (AST).

  • Break down code into atomic fragments (functions or classes) and use language models to generate descriptive vector-encoded representations.

  • Interpret user queries semantically by integrating multiple external data sources including code repositories, documentation, and search engines.

Join the Public Beta

Starting today, GitHub Mode is open for public testing and is free to use. Currently, it supports public Python repositories, with plans to extend capabilities to other programming languages and private repositories. We invite you to try it out and share your feedback, which will help us continually improve and evolve GitHub Mode.
