Standard Templates

Generating the best possible response is as much science as art. The Bito AI models are built on the same technology as ChatGPT handles the science part. Crafting a good prompt is the art part. The Templates in Bito takes the burden off your shoulder in being crafty. You can select a piece of code and use one of the eight prompts, whether you want to check the code for performance or add error handling. Behind-the-scene actor "Bito Prompt Manager" crafts a well-versed prompt that squeezes the best response out of the machine. You can also save your favorite prompts for quick access anytime. Check out Custom Prompt Templates.
