Possible benchmark

Microsoft released an auto agent style framework for coding, AutoDev, that might include an interesting set of benchmarks for cursor vs other providers. The paper also described an agentic approach which may eventually be more powerful than fine tuned LLMs.


Yeah AutoDev is the real deal. Thanks for sharing that paper I’ve also seen a couple days ago.

AutoDev is built on Intellij IDEA.

Unlike other tools, AutoDev is open-source, which means it’s free to use and you can modify it to fit your needs. It’s also designed to work with multiple programming languages, including Java, JavaScript, and TypeScript. This flexibility allows you to switch between projects without having to learn new tools.

One of the most impressive features of AutoDev is its ability to generate code snippets and documentation automatically. This can speed up your development process and make it easier to maintain your code. Debugging is often one of the most time-consuming parts of coding, but AutoDev’s bug-slinging assistant can quickly identify and fix code issues. This frees up your time to focus on more creative aspects of your project.

AutoDev is also highly customizable. You can set up prompts and testing features to create a development environment that works best for you. This can help you work more productively and ensure that the tool adapts to your project’s needs.

Features of AutoDev

  • Multilingual support for programming languages like Java, JavaScript, TypeScript, and others.
  • Auto code generation and documentation, facilitating easier writing and maintenance of code.
  • A bug-slinging assistant that helps detect and explain code issues, as well as generate fixes.
  • Customizable prompts and testing features to streamline the development process.
  • Integration with development and operations (DevOps) tools, including continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) with autogenerated configuration files.
  • The Devin language component, which enhances the AI agent’s ability to understand and execute complex instructions.
  • A framework that allows developers to define and refine AI agent behaviors for various tasks.

For developers who prefer using JetBrains’ integrated development environment, AutoDev includes a plugin that enhances its functionality within this platform. The tool’s connectivity extends to APIs from Hugging Face, GitHub, and OpenAI’s language models, giving you access to a wide range of development tools and resources.

AutoDev is more than just a coding tool; it’s a comprehensive AI-assisted coding companion. Its rich set of features, from multilingual support and automatic code generation to a bug-slinging assistant, streamlines the development process. The tool’s adaptability, with customizable prompts, testing features, and DevOps integration, makes it an invaluable asset for any software project. The Devin language component and behavior definition framework give you a level of personalization and control that sets AutoDev apart as your personal AI coding engineer.

As you continue to work on your software projects, consider how AutoDev can assist you coding. Its advanced features and seamless integration can save you time and reduce the complexity of your tasks. Whether you’re a seasoned developer or just starting out, AutoDev is a tool that can help you achieve your coding goals more efficiently. So why not give it a try and see how it can transform your coding experience?

thanks for sharing!

according to the “Can we beat devin?” community: Can We Beat Devin? - this repo you are pointing to pre-dates the microsoft paper you are referring to, (and is not actually an implementation of the paper.)
