Getting Started

Ghostwriter currently includes five features:

Complete Code - Ghostwriter's flagship feature. Ghostwriter leverages context to provide code suggestions as you're typing. Press tab to accept suggestions.

Explain Code - Highlight code, and Ghostwriter will walk through it step-by-step in plain English.

Transform Code, and Ghostwriter will provide a suggested rewrite of the code block.

Generate Code - Provide a natural language prompt, and let Ghostwriter generate code to help solve your problem.

Chat - AI assistant that enables users to quickly get answers to their coding-related questions directly in the Workspace, without ever leaving the page.

You can get access to these features with a Pro plan or with Cycles for 1,000 cycles ($10 USD) per month.
