VS Code and GitHub Copilot

Recommended Posts

I am trying to follow this guide on how to configure GitHub Copilot in Visual Studio Code. That goes well till I come to number three. Where is that login button in the left corner? How does it look?


To configure Github Copilot in Visual Studio Code, you need to follow these steps:

1- Install Visual Studio Code: If you haven't already, you can download and install Visual Studio Code from the official website: https://code.visualstudio.com/.

2- Install the Github Copilot extension: Open Visual Studio Code and click on the "Extensions" icon in the left-hand sidebar. Search for "Github Copilot" and install the official extension that is developed by Github and Microsoft.

3- Sign in to Github: After installing the extension, click on the "Sign in to GitHub" button in the bottom left corner of the Visual Studio Code window, and follow the instructions to sign in to your Github account.

4- Activate Github Copilot: Once you are signed in to Github, you can activate Github Copilot by opening a file and typing some code. Press "Ctrl+Space" (Windows, Linux) or "Cmd+Space" (Mac) to trigger Github Copilot, and it will start suggesting code for you.

5- Customize the settings: You can customize the settings for Github Copilot by going to the Visual Studio Code settings (File > Preferences > Settings), searching for "Github Copilot", and adjusting the relevant settings to your preference.

6- That's it! You should now be able to use Github Copilot in Visual Studio Code. Just remember that Github Copilot is an AI-powered code generator that uses machine learning to suggest code based on context, and it is not a complete replacement for manual coding. You should always review and understand the code generated by Github Copilot before using it in production environments.
