    For example:

  1. Select Look up documentation.
  2. In the text input field, enter a question, then click .

The code assistant answers your question based on the Wix API documentation.

Quick access to the Wix AI Assistant

You can also access the Wix AI Assistant directly from the editor window:

  • Open the Wix AI Assistant: Right-click anywhere in the editor window and select Ask Wix AI Assistant. This opens the Wix AI Assistant panel, ready for your query.

Code snippets

Click Copy to copy the code to the clipboard.

Click Insert to insert the code directly into the code file you are editing. The code is inserted where your cursor is currently located. If you have some code selected, the inserted code will replace it.
