Best ChatGPT Alternatives for Coding (5 Examples)
Hi! In this tutorial, we will be discussing best ChatGPT alternatives for writing code. In other words, other generative AI technologies that can be used to generate code.
While ChatGPT by Open AI remains the leading generative AI technology for a host of operations, there are also other alternatives to ChatGPT that offer similar and, in some cases, better functionality.
Here is an overview:
Let’s dive into the discussion!
Example 1: BARD by Google
BARD, which was made available to the public on May 10, 2023, is positioned to be a strong competitor for ChatGPT.
The response it gave was quite good, and I went on to engage it in other conversations.
Also, the interface design is nice as, like ChatGPT, you can toggle between light mode and dark mode.
You can give BARD a try here.
Example 2: Chatsonic by Writesonic
In the settings, however, you can select between a concise or detailed response to your prompt query.
These are some of the features of Chatsonic that make it one good alternative to ChatGPT.
Try Chatsonic here.
Example 3: Microsoft Bing Chat
I asked Bing Chat if it could write me R code for looping over a list of integers, and this was what it returned:
As you can see, it generated the R code for me, much like what ChatGPT would do. However, it didn’t quite give a code explanation.
But, if you need to generate code in a particular programming language, then Bing Chat can do the job for you.
Give it a try here.
Example 4: YOU Chat
I asked YOU Chat to write me Python code for creating a nested list. This was the response it gave:
Clearly, it did a nice job with the code generation and offered an explanation too.
Like Chatsonic, YOU Chat also allows you to generate images from a text prompt using Stable Diffusion and Open Journey engines.
Play with YOU Chat here.
Example 5: Perplexity AI
Perplexity AI is another generative AI tool that can be used as a substitute for ChatGPT when it comes to code generation.
It thus serves as a good alternative to ChatGPT. Give Perplexity AI a try here.

This post has discussed best alternatives to ChatGPT for coding. There are many other useful chatbots that can function as well as ChatGPT when it comes to code generation. However, the five discussed in this post are among the best of them.
Since new generative AI technology and tools are being rolled out almost on a daily basis, it behooves users to keep abreast of these developments in order to be able to make use of the latest technology.
