Sourcegraph Cody vs Tabnine

Tabnine is an AI assistant primarily focused on code autocomplete. Tabnine Chat, an in-IDE chat feature, is also in beta but only for Enterprise users. The free tier of Tabnine has limited functionality, offering short code completions of 2-3 words.

The most unique aspect of Tabnine is its hybrid LLM approach. Tabnine's free tier (Starter) runs a small model on the user's local machine and a larger model in the cloud. Tabnine Pro also offers a model where users can run the Tabnine AI models entirely on their local machine.

TL;DR: Tabnine is a good choice for users who want to run their LLM entirely on their local machine. Cody Free and Cody Pro offer a wider range of features using cloud-based models.
