Hi all… sorry if thus has been discusses before i tried searching but could not find.
Im a student dev and love using cursor but the API calls are killing me and not sure if im using right
Ive indexed (i think) my github repo and it shows a greenbar. for my current workspace and also my github workspace but the title still says "You have not indexed any code yet"
Why does it show my gitHub Repo here is i have not indexed any code yet ?
I assume the “index” is a vector db of the repo or any folder/directory you choose?
When i as just ask a question in “Chat” it looks at the file and assumes makes a call to API?
if i use “With Codebase” will it still make the same call/cost or is it less expensive to use that the “Chat” only option?
Essentially i just want to answer a question using the current code in my project using ChatGPT4 for the least expensive way possible… which i though would be though embeddings/“Chat with codebase…” but not sure.
Is there a tutorial for this?
- Im still a free user but considering pro however ive noticed that in Cursor - The AI-first Code Editor
It says i get 50 requests per day… but the number never changes… so its not free?
My IDE is linked to my account and i make a bunch of calls but the 50 request number never changes.
gpt-4 You’ve used no requests out of your 50
slow requests quota.
How do i use these free requests?
- Ive noticed the questions i asked GPT4 through cursor Chat often hang or just fail or even keep repeating the same wrong answer (which i probably get charged for =(. ) but if i copy the exact same question/code to ChatGPT plus window (using GPT4) its able to answer my question correctly. This is happening quite frequently recently. Is this normal?
What am i doing wrong?
