How can I specify the language of code produced by Codex?

I am primarily a JavaScript developer, and do not necessarily want the responses to be in Python. I have gotten JS working in the online playgrounds, but how can I specify the language through the API?


In the Playground you can use comments, mention the language that needs to be used. Also when it sees code it detects the language that is being used.

In the engines select Davinci-Codex.


Put the name of the language at the top in a comment (using the comment syntax from the language). Also, the first line can include the typical statements for the desired language. e.g “import” in Python or “const” / “var” in JavaScript.


try something like this // Language: javascript
