Ghostwriter currently includes four features:
Ghostwriter is a code completion tool that provides suggestions based on the code in your current file. To use it, simply start coding and the suggestions will appear inline.
Replit's Ghostwriter Chat is an chat-based AI assistant that enables users to quickly get answers to their coding-related questions directly in the Workspace, without ever leaving the page.
Ghostwriter can give you step-by-step natural language explanations of your code with Explain Code. This feature is especially useful when trying to understand other people's code or code you wrote in the past.
With Transform Code, Ghostwriter can refactor your code to run faster, translate it into another language, and make your code easier to read
With Generate Code, you can give Ghostwriter a natural language prompt, and Ghostwriter will return a block of code to fulfill the purpose. This feature can write large chunks of code at once, so it's useful when you want to write small programs or several related functions in one shot.
