tl;dr All you need to do is update your Eclipse plugin and you will have access to an unlimited ChatGPT-like experience — integrated with your IDE to have full codebase awareness.
Talk with your IDE
In both Visual Studio Code and JetBrains IDEs, developers have been using Codeium Chat to explain code, generate docstrings and unit tests, translate between languages, refactor functions, and much more. Today, we have tens of thousands of developers sending hundreds of thousands of chat messages a day, so we know that we have developed a foundational modality that resonates with our users.
Bringing Chat to Eclipse
We wanted to bring Codeium Chat to Eclipse next for a couple of reasons. First, it is one of our most popular IDEs, both on the individual and enterprise versions of Codeium. Second, Eclipse is obviously primarily used for Java, and we found given the verbosity of the language itself, a larger Chat model would be especially beneficial to developers on Eclipse. Luckily for us, Eclipse, like Visual Studio Code, does have some visual real estate built in for a chat panel, so we built and leveraged the side panel for our Chat view. Now, users can get the benefits of both Autocomplete and Chat on Eclipse:
What You Get With Codeium Chat in Eclipse
Check out our chat page for a preview of the different things that you can do with Chat, now available in Eclipse. Chat helps developers when they are exploring tasks that are chunkier or more vague, which nicely complements Autocomplete, which helps to accelerate typing out code that the developer knows they want.
If you are a developer who actively uses Eclipse, we recommend getting (or upgrading) the plugin today:
