Code Completion API: How to let the api understand a whole code repository?

Looks like when I use the code completion api there is a length limit for the prompt. Any other way can let the model read the repository?


Unfortunately not.

With Davinci the limit is 406 tokens (about 3000 words), and with the other models it is 2048 (or about 1500 words)

That also includes the tokens that are in the prompt you send to get the completion

The word count will depend on the language and the content complexity

Codex is 8096 tokens for Davinci and less for Cushman
