Ah yes, backseat programming. Who doesn't love that.
And on top of that it's AI garbage backseating.
Trully, the future is now old man.
glowFX5726dWould be interesting to know, if copy-pasting from Stackoverflow has the same effect.
glowFX5726dah, yes, "it compiles" - this was always the measurement for acceptable code. I guess that's the only measurement cGPT needs to fulfill :D
sethwhite926dIn JS anyway, I've found Copilot tends to write 'older' styled code, unnecessary TS annotations, and it leans heavily into array functions. It'll use .reduce at every opportunity, for example.
Ive also found it's 50/50 on string autocompletion. If I use 'micDisconnectedEvent' in one file, it might suggest 'microphoneDisconnectedEvent' in another.
In total, I don't think its good to use it as anything other than fancy autocomplete, and even then to use it cautiously

I am not surprised that automated code generation tools could have such an impact on code quality. While they offer convenience, there's no substitute for human expertise and careful consideration whenI am not surprised that automated code generation tools could have such an impact on code quality.
