Managing editor plugins

Using the Plugin Manager

The Kite Copilot contains a plugin manager you can use to install or uninstall editor plugins. To access it, click on the gear icon at the bottom right corner of the Copilot.

Next click on the plugins tab.

Allow a couple of seconds for the plugin manager to check which editors are installed on your system. Once the plugin manager is ready, you can install or uninstall plugins for the editors that are installed.

If the Copilot is not shown, you can also access the plugin manager by visiting kite://settings/plugins in your browser.

Important: When installing or uninstalling a plugin for an editor, please make sure that the editor is not running. The plugin may not install or uninstall correctly if the editor is running.

Kite currently supports the following editors:

  • Atom
  • JetBrains: GoLand, IntelliJ, and PyCharm
  • Spyder
  • Sublime Text 3
  • Vim
  • VS Code
