The power of the Pieces Copilot, deeply integrated into your IDE

Our initial feature set for our Visual Studio extension focuses heavily on generative assistance, putting all the features of the Pieces Copilot right into your IDE. Leverage real-time context from all of your tools to ask questions, explain concepts or entire repositories, and generate ready-to-use code.

The Pieces Copilot, in Visual Studio

Your favorite copilot experience, exactly where you work. Generate, iterate, and curate your code and never get stuck with “blank page syndrome” again.

Useful Conversations, Contextualized to You

Add files, folders, snippets, and websites as context to customize your conversations to your workflow and your code base.

Using Pieces Copilot in Visual Studio.

Choose your LLM, Cloud or Local

Leverage all of your favorite LLMs as the Copilot’s runtime. Use a cloud service such as OpenAI’s GPT-4 or Google’s Gemini, or keep things on-device with our local LLM offerings, such as Microsoft’s Phi-2 or Mistral. Check out our latest blog on How to run an LLM locally to see how to use local models most efficiently.

Less typing, more doing

Insert any code you’ve generated into the copilot right into your codebase.
