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.

Templates are accessible:

1- In the Bito panel

Click on the Templates button to expand or collapse Templates menu.

Type a forward slash / right at the start in the Bito chat box. Once you do, the template menu will open from where you can quickly select and use the template you want.

Want to narrow down your choices? Simply start typing after the / slash, and it'll only show you templates that match your words. And hey, you can also use the arrow keys, or Tab and Shift + Tab, to navigate the templates menu.
