These are wonderful projects and very smart extensions for ChatGPT.

GPT Prompt Integrator

GPT Prompt Integrator also has a repository faaydemir/openai-powered-snippets and a snippet editor tool.

For half an hour, I couldn’t figure out how to start it, since the only trigger is Ctrl+O and then Ctrl+A, but after that it works as expected. It turned out that it also works with GPT-4 and GPT-3.

Unlike FlexiGPT, which is very similar, this one has a separate editor for prompt flows. The only thing I don’t like is that there is no way to open a sidebar or something similar and have interactive communication with ChatGPT.


FlexiGPT is a repository for ppipada/vscode-flexigpt: FlexiGPT plugin for VSCode. Interact with AI models as a power user.

It features a dedicated small sidebar for general programming and GPT Interrogator. However, it did not work with GPT-4, possibly due to the URL, and I was unable to get it to respond in the editor. Instead, everything happened in the sidebar, which I did not like. To be precise, I was never able to get it to respond to any model.

mkprompt: Prompt Builder for ChatGPT and Similar Apps

mkprompt Visual Studio extension is a companion tool for mkprompt that allows for the creation of flows. These generated prompts can be copied and pasted into the ChatGPT UI. Check out the TextQLLabs/mkprompt repository for more information on how to inject code, errors, and definitions into your ChatGPT prompt.

I find this tool to be somewhat raw and unrefined.
