This is a small playground for testing out Cratecode's AI features (well, you can test anything out here, but these instructions are specifically for AI).
Before going further, please keep two things in mind:
- You must be signed up to access the AI. If you aren't already, there should be a link above to get you started.
- AI isn't free. Well, it is for you, but that money comes from somewhere. It's for that reason that I ask that your interactions with the AI give it complicated, meaningful problems. That isn't a requirement, of course, but doing so gives us good data that can be used to help improve it.
Now, let's take a look at how this works. First, I want to give you a brief introduction to how the layout of this site works. First off, the window that you're reading this in is called the Toolbox. To your left are buttons that control which Toolbox item you're looking at. The most important ones are the Info/README item (that's this one!), and the file explorer item.
If you head into the file explorer, you can double click files to open them up in the editor. Then, you can edit them, hit the Run button, and see the results in the console. You can also type directly in the console, if you want.
Finally, there's the AI assistant window. If you're on a computer, it's a hidden panel to the far right. On mobile, it's a little robot button.
There are instructions in this window, but you basically just need to tell it what you're trying to do (e.g.
A NodeJS program that reads a data file and prints each word on a separate line), and give it an optional question. If you don't give it a question, it'll look over your code and give you hints towards completing the program.
That's all. Have fun!
