We are constantly updating our product to provide a great user experience. The Codiga Coding Assistant helps you create, share, and import reusable code snippets in your IDE (known as recipes). Previously while using our Coding Assistant, users were required to write complete keywords of what recipes they were trying to use. But now, to provide a good user experience and ease of work, we have pushed shortcuts for VS Code for our current update (version 0.3.1).

This will let users directly populate recipes onto their IDE by typing out the library you want to use, followed by ‘.’ (period) to get suggestions. More recipes will be added soon to provide more recommendations and options for the users.

What’s new in version 0.3.1?

  1. Shortcuts are now enabled in VS code. (For Javascript & Python)
  2. Using CMD + SHIFT + C[Mac]/ CTRL + ALT + C [Windows] opens Codiga Coding Assistant to find snippets based on a search like a google
  3. Using CMD + SHIFT + S [Mac]/ CTRL + ALT + S [Windows] pens the list of all shortcuts
  4. Minor bug fixes

To get the latest update. Please install the newest version of the Codiga Coding Assistant. This can be done by visiting the vscode marketplace

Once done, you can use our latest features. Shortcuts can be used in Python & Javascript.
