On my list of extensions to try in vscode: tab nine

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/03

I wrote about Visual Studio Code: blazingly fast text expansion with Emmet in september.

Another productivity extension that is on my list is [Wayback/] Tabnine – Code Faster with the All-Language AI Assistant for Code Completion, autocomplete JavaScript, Python, TypeScript, PHP, Go, Java, node.js, Ruby, C/C++, HTML/CSS, C#, Rust, SQL, Bash, Kotlin, R – Visual Studio Marketplace.

The first thing I thought of when reading this is “oh, wasn’t this the GitHub open source AI code completion plugin controverse in mid 2021?”. It wasn’t. See links below.

From what I have read so far, it works totally different from Emmet (which has built-in support), so I am wondering if I like it, and how much time it will take to get adjusted to it.

Some links for when I try it:

Interesting Dutch comments from Julia indicating I should really take a look at GitHub Copilot as it is based on the OpenAI Codex, which means two more additions for the above links:

Julia’s comments (the first indicating the free version of Tab Nine is “meh” and the paid version is OK but more expensive than GitHub Copilot, the second that GitHub Copilot has a better engine but has no free version:

  1. [Wayback/Archive] spooky!!! julia!!! 🌻🎃 on Twitter: “@jpluimers De gratis versie is meh. De betaalde versie biedt meer opties, maar is duurder dan GitHub Copilot (het scheelt ongeveer twee tientjes op jaarbasis als je per maand betaalt).” / Twitter
  2. [Wayback/Archive] spooky!!! julia!!! 🌻🎃 on Twitter: “@jpluimers Ik zou TabNine zeker eens uitproberen, maar voor het echte werk zou ik voor Copilot gaan omdat die het beste model gebruikt dat op dit moment beschikbaar is (namelijk OpenAI Codex). Maar het nadeel is dus wel dat die $10 per maand of $100 per jaar kost (als je vooruit betaalt).”

Conceptually, I’m not sure if I want to pay for GitHub Copilot when they are based on harvesting open source code for profit.
