Introduction

GitHub Copilot is an AI pair programmer. You can use GitHub Copilot to get suggestions for whole lines or entire functions right inside your editor.

You can use GitHub Copilot either through your personal account, with a GitHub Copilot Individual subscription, or through an organization or enterprise account, with a GitHub Copilot Business or GitHub Copilot Enterprise subscription. To use Copilot through an organization account, you must be assigned a GitHub Copilot seat by your organization.

This guide shows you how to set up a GitHub Copilot Individual subscription for your personal account, install the GitHub Copilot extension in Visual Studio Code, and get your first suggestion. For organization owners and enterprise owners, this guide also explains how to set up a GitHub Copilot Business or GitHub Copilot Enterprise subscription.

For more in-depth information on how to use GitHub Copilot in a variety of environments, see "Getting started with GitHub Copilot."

Signing up for GitHub Copilot for your personal account

Before you can start using GitHub Copilot through your personal account, you will need to set up a free trial or subscription for GitHub Copilot Individual.

Note: If you were part of the free GitHub Copilot technical preview that was run between July 2021 and June 2022, you are not eligible for a 30-day trial.

  1. In the upper-right corner of any page, click your profile photo, then click Your Copilot.

  2. On the GitHub Copilot settings page, click Start free trial.

  3. Choose whether you want to pay monthly or yearly, and click Get access to GitHub Copilot.

    If your personal account meets the criteria for a free GitHub Copilot subscription instead of a trial or paid subscription, you will automatically be taken to step 6.

  4. Follow the steps to enter and confirm your payment details, then click Submit.

  5. Select your preferences, then click Save and complete setup.

    You can change these preferences at a later time by returning to your GitHub Copilot settings. For more information, see "Configuring GitHub Copilot in your environment."

Installing the GitHub Copilot extension for Visual Studio Code

To use GitHub Copilot in Visual Studio Code, you must first install the Copilot extension.

  1. In the Visual Studio Code Marketplace, go to the GitHub Copilot extension page and click Install.

  2. A popup will appear, asking to open Visual Studio Code. Click Open Visual Studio Code.

  3. In the "Extension: GitHub Copilot" tab in Visual Studio Code, click Install.

  4. If you have not previously authorized Visual Studio Code in your GitHub account, you will be prompted to sign in to GitHub in Visual Studio Code.

    If you have previously authorized Visual Studio Code in your GitHub account, GitHub Copilot will be automatically authorized.

  5. In your browser, GitHub will request the necessary permissions for GitHub Copilot. To approve these permissions, click Authorize Visual Studio Code.

  6. In Visual Studio Code, in the "Visual Studio Code" dialogue box, to confirm the authentication, click Open.

Getting your first suggestion

Note: If you have duplication detection enabled for GitHub Copilot, you may receive limited suggestions, or no suggestions, when using the code examples provided. As an alternative, you can start by typing your own code to see suggestions from GitHub Copilot. For more information on duplication detection, see "Configuring GitHub Copilot settings on GitHub.com."

GitHub Copilot provides suggestions for numerous languages and a wide variety of frameworks, but works especially well for Python, JavaScript, TypeScript, Ruby, Go, C# and C++. GitHub Copilot can also assist in query generation for databases. The following samples are in JavaScript, but other languages will work similarly.

  1. Open Visual Studio Code.

  2. In Visual Studio Code, create a new JavaScript (*.js) file.

  3. In the JavaScript file, type the following function header.

    JavaScript
    function calculateDaysBetweenDates(begin, end) {
    

    GitHub Copilot will automatically suggest an entire function body in grayed text. The exact suggestion may vary.

  4. To accept the suggestion, press Tab.
