AI Code Generator

AI Code Generator Amazon CodeWhisperer

CodeWhisperer is a new AI code generator from Amazon that understands developers’ comments and existing code and suggests code based on their style and intent. It can quickly create snippets, functions, classes, or modules based on natural language descriptions, and provides documentation and examples to work with unfamiliar APIs. The tool aims to save time and effort on coding tasks and helps developers focus on building innovative solutions.


Personalized real-time suggestions for your code

Amazon CodeWhisperer is a service that generates code suggestions from natural language comments. It uses a large corpus of Amazon and public code to learn how to write code similar to yours. You can use it in your IDE to get function or block suggestions, and edit them as needed. CodeWhisperer also helps you complete your comments as you type.

Popular programming languages and IDEs are supported

Amazon CodeWhisperer generates code suggestions based on natural language comments and code in the IDE. It supports multiple programming languages and IDEs. It uses machine learning to improve developer productivity.

AWS Optimized

CodeWhisperer helps developers write code for AWS services more efficiently. It analyzes your code and comments in your IDE and suggests code snippets that use the appropriate cloud services and libraries for your functionality. It also ensures that your code follows AWS best practices.

Built-in security scans

CodeWhisperer can detect security vulnerabilities in Java, JavaScript, and Python programs. It detects vulnerabilities such as OWASP top 10 or crypto library usage in the IDE. It also provides intelligent methods to repair the code and boost security.

Track open-source code responsibly with reference tracker.

CodeWhisperer assists you in avoiding unintended open-source code copying. It marks and annotates code suggestions that resemble open-source projects and allows you to evaluate them before using them. It also saves the marked recommendations for further reference.

Avoid Bias in Coding

CodeWhisperer is a tool that promotes ethical AI and ML development. It detects and removes code suggestions that could lead to biased and unfair outcomes.

Enterprise administration

You may configure SSO for your users or groups and grant them access to CodeWhisperer using AWS IAM Identity Center. You can also create group-wide policies, such as whether to show suggestions that include code from other projects or sources.

Customers Review

What others are saying


“Availability of the plugin for our tools will help developers stay focused in their IDE and reduce the need to search and customize code snippets from the web. As of today, users of IntelliJ IDEA, PyCharm, and WebStorm can start working with Amazon CodeWhisperer right in their IDE, with more IDEs to be supported in the near future.”

“I used CodeWhisperer in Python—a language I am a novice in. In minutes, I had a program that could connect to my AWS account and list S3 buckets with a slew of info, like name, creation date, and Region. I believe this tool will make developers more productive and rekindle their joy for programming in a new world.”


“Distractions are a constant challenge while coding, especially when it’s necessary to switch context to look up code samples and documentation on the web. Amazon CodeWhisperer keeps me focused on the code by automatically offering helpful suggestions right when I need them, so I never have to leave my editor.”
