Cody is an AI coding assistant developed by Sourcegraph that enhances the coding experience by providing advanced search capabilities, codebase context understanding, and generative AI features to help developers understand, write, and fix code more efficiently.

Key features:
- AI-assisted autocomplete for single lines or entire functions across any programming language
- AI-powered chat to assist developers in navigating projects, understanding code, and solving complex problems
- Code understanding and generation, including explaining code blocks or repositories, generating unit tests, and describing code smells for optimization
- Support for custom commands tailored to the developer's workflow

Integrations:
- IDEs: Visual Studio Code, JetBrains IDEs, and NeoVim
- Code Hosts: GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab, Gerrit, Perforce, and Golang

Use of AI:
Cody leverages generative AI through the use of advanced Large Language Models (LLMs) such as Claude 3, GPT-4 Turbo, and Mixtral-8x7B. It also allows users to bring their own LLM keys from Amazon Bedrock and Azure OpenAI, providing flexibility and avoiding lock-in to a specific model.

How to access:
Cody is available as a plugin for various IDEs, making it easily accessible for developers working in supported coding environments. There is also a Cody Enterprise version offering additional features like enhanced security, scalability, and control for organizations.
