How to setup Amazon CodeWhisperer in VS Code


Amazon CodeWhisperer is an AI-powered code suggestion tool that helps to write code more efficiently.

It's a free alternative to GitHub's Copilot and supports popular editors and languages.

Let's see how to set it up in VS Code

  • Install AWS Toolkit extension.
  • Once it is installed choose the AWS: Focus on Developer Tools View option.
  • A sidebar will be shown on the left. In that choose Start under CodeWhisperer
  • It'll show multiple options, in that choose Use a personal email to sign up and sign in with AWS Builder ID
  • Now, choose signup/login and enter the **Auth Code" and then allow AWS Toolkit in your AWS Builder.

That's pretty much it.

You should be seeing the Amazon CodeWhisperer suggestions in your VS Code :)

Happy AI-assisted coding!
