Have fun!

Refraction Autoreview + CLI


We just rolled out Autoreview — a GitHub Marketplace plugin that automatically generates descriptions and code reviews for your PRs. It's still in beta, but we'd love to get your thoughts on it!

Available now for paid Teams.


We also released Refraction for Terminal, a fun little CLI that allows you to generate code using AI straight in your terminal.

Enjoy! ✌️

Analytics for Teams and Reviews


Howdy folks! We've been quiet recently as we work on some amazing new features for Refraction. First one up is Analytics for Teams, where admins can get granular insights into their team's usage of Refraction.

On top of that, you can also review and rate AI responses now! You'll get a little toast down the bottom after you generate some code, where you can leave a rating (👍, 🤷‍♀️, 👎) and a further review.

🤯 New features and new languages



CleanShot 2023-03-16 at 14

Another big update today! We have two new features:

  • Generate Regexes: Tell us what you want your regular expression to do and we will write it for you, as well as explain exactly how it works.
  • Generate SQL Queries: Tell us what you want your database query to do and we will write it for you. Works for MySQL, Postgres, BigQuery, Redshift and more!

Also, we added support for 9 new languages: Clojure, F Sharp, Handlebars, Liquid, Powershell, Solidity, Visual Basic .NET, XML and YAML.

We also launched feature pages on our website, like Unit Tests, so you can see how these utilities work before using them! You can find them all on our Features page.

Lastly, if you're an organization wanting to start a business plan but need that extra certainty, we launched our Data Security Policy by special request.

That's all for today! Happy hacking.
