(Major Update) Complete Refactor; Better AI, Edits and Classification

CodeWP v2.5: The best release yet. All previous limitations overcome in this major update.

Please read our blog post for more information: CodeWP 2.5 - A major update with improved AI, better edits, automated testing, and website integration

Improvements and Fixes

Stability Issues Resolved

We have completely redesigned the architecture for data transfer between the backend and frontend of our platform to enhance stability.

New AI Models Deployed

We have implemented major upgrades to our AI models, which were delayed until this infrastructure overhaul was completed. Users can now expect up to 3x faster response times, 2x improvement in accuracy, better comprehension of requests, and more natural conversations.

New Editing System

The systems for both AI and human editing on the frontend have been re-engineered. Requests are formatted appropriately to unlock superior comprehension and responses from models. Edits seamlessly support appending, prepending, modifying within existing code, and even creating new files.

Edits now directly update the frontend editor in real-time, resolving a small but persistent issue where users would not see edits reflected without refreshing.

Improved Classification

Classifications have been upgraded by utilizing a larger parameter AI model and additional training data accumulated over months of our previous classification system. The improved integration with the conversational flow enables more user-guided actions, with the classifier able to suggest potential file creations while allowing the user to decide on application.

Unlocked Advanced Modes and Presets

The upgraded infrastructure and AI unlock more advanced modes and presets that were previously restricted. Expect several major feature releases in the coming weeks and months.

Helper Plugin Foundation

The refactor establishes backend systems to process context data from our upcoming helper plugin, which can be applied when chatting or generating code for connected projects.

Fork Snippets, UI and UX Improvements

CodeWP 2.4 is a "minor" release packing in some quality of life features, and many UI and UX improvements throughout the platform.

Improvements and Fixes

Forking Snippets

We have added the ability to fork both public and private snippets. Forking creates an easy-to-access copy of the code in the code workspace editor, allowing you to conversationally edit the snippet to suit your specific needs.

Other Updates

  • We have standardized the styling and positioning of all pop outs across the editor for consistency.
  • There is now a convenient link in the editor sidebar to directly open the snippet view.
  • The snippet view has been made more responsive for an improved experience on all devices.
  • The chatbot now suggests 'seed prompts' if no messages have been sent.
  • For shorter screens, modes and presets have been moved to more accessible locations in the chatbox.
  • Improvements were made to the onboarding tour targeting system to reduce errors.
  • Groundwork has been laid for the upcoming 2.5 release and code refactoring.
  • Dozens of other front and backend bugs have been fixed to enhance performance and usage.

Social Sharing, Snippet Upgrades

Excited to announce the CodeWP v2.3 Release. There's a lot packed into this, but the main focus was on Social Sharing updates.

Improvements and Fixes

Social Sharing

  • AI titles: For any snippet set to "public" (which means anybody with the link can access them) our AI will automatically generate a Title and Description. You can always edit these if needed.
  • FAQs: Public snippets now also get AI generated FAQs, which are surprisingly helpful! They'll tell you and whoever you've shared a snippet with how to install, modify, etc...
  • Commenting: Commenting has been added to snippets. You can use this feature internally on private snippets for notes, or publicly to share your thoughts and ask questions.
  • Better sharing flow: We've made slight improvements to the process of sharing a snippet to make the flow a bit easier to handle.
  • Sharing Images: We've created detailed sharing images, which are dynamically created. When you share a snippet on FB, X or another network, this image will provide a detailed overview of what the snippet does.

We're excited to begin using this feature ourselves to start sharing dozens of Code Snippets in the Facebook Group. We'll be getting started next week by sharing a few that replace the need for several paid WooCommerce extensions.

If you're not a member of the group, join here:

Other Notable Changes / Additions

  • Move to app.codewp.ai domain. There's no change to you as redirects are in place. Public snippets will be continue to be shared under the primary codewp.ai domain.
  • Multi File: Addition of JSON, which allows for more complex packages like ACF blocks.
  • Conversation Settings (several new options): Read the band new help center article for more info about each.
  • Ability to add new files in an open package via the File Tabs. Now it's MUCH quicker to make packages manually, or expand existing ones.
  • Slight UI changes to the editor experience.
  • Filter functionality for snippets - easily view only Favorited snippets.
  • Additional tooltips to make more aspects of the platform more clear.
  • Complete onboarding tour for new users.
  • Office hours - chat with James the Founder of CodeWP every Friday. Click the Help and Support tab, then the Office Hours link to schedule a time slot.
  • Stability improvements.

Get Excited!

Since our launch, we've been working on some major AI and backend improvements that result in 3x speed, better accuracy, and improved stability. We're planning on rolling these changes out soon as an unversioned release. Generations, edits, presets classifications, and most aspects of our AI will improve!

 

💚 Thank you for using CodeWP!
