Getting Started

This section guides you through the initial setup process, enabling you to start automating your development tasks with Code Autopilot. Follow the steps below to get started.


Before you begin with Code Autopilot, ensure you have the following:

  • A GitHub account. If you don’t have a GitHub account, create one here.
  • Your code is hosted on a GitHub repository.


Follow the steps below to set up Code Autopilot:

  1. Install GitHub App: Install the Code Autopilot GitHub App on your repositories here.
  2. Create a New Issue: In one of your repositories, create a new issue and describe the task you want to automate. Remember to mention @autopilot to invoke Autopilot. If you don't have an "Issues" tab on your repository, you need to enable it by going to Settings -> General -> Features
  3. Autopilot will start indexing your repository and will reply to your issue with a suggested solution. This will usually take a few minutes.
  4. You can then chat with autopilot by posting new comments with @autopilot anywhere in the text.

By completing the above steps, you've successfully set up Code Autopilot and are ready to start automating your development tasks!
