GPT4 in your terminal, watching you code and giving feedback

Project description

Hack Mentor


pip install hack_mentor
export OPENAI_API_KEY="your-key-here"


This project ues GPT-4 to actively watch you code in your terminal, providing real-time feedback and suggestions.

There are two key modes in Hack Mentor:

  • Bug Mode: Here, Hack Mentor will look for bugs and give concise suggestions for how to fix.

  • Architect Mode: In this mode, Hack Mentor takes a more holistic view, helping you design your code structure and suggesting architectural changes.


Before starting, ensure you have Python 3.6 or above installed on your system.

  1. Set up a virtual environment. This helps to avoid any conflicts with other installed Python packages.

    python3 -m venv hack_mentor_env
  2. Activate the virtual environment.

    On Linux or MacOS:

    source hack_mentor_env/bin/activate

    On Windows:

  3. Install Hack Mentor via pip.

    pip install hack_mentor
  4. Set up your OpenAI API key


Once you have Hack Mentor installed, you can use it in the following ways:

  • To use Mentor mode with a single file, use:

    hack_mentor mentor App.js ~/george/my_cool_app/index.js
  • To use Architect mode with multiple files, use:

    hack_mentor architect App.js component.js reducer.js ~/george/my_cool_app/index.js

In both cases, replace App.js, component.js and reducer.js with the actual paths to your JavaScript files.

Hack Mentor is currently optimized for JavaScript, but we're actively working on supporting more languages. Stay tuned!
