Launch HN: Sweep (YC S23) – A bot to create simple PRs in your codebase

Sweep is an AI junior developer that can convert bug reports and feature requests into actual code changes. By describing issues in a way that a junior developer would understand, Sweep is able to read codebases, plan changes, and write pull requests with code. Unlike other AI solutions like Copilot and ChatGPT, Sweep handles the entire development process seamlessly. It can turn issues directly into pull requests without needing an IDE and can address developer replies and comments on its pull requests. Sweep uses embedding-based code search to assist in its coding tasks. However, there are some limitations to Sweep, such as large-scale refactors and accessing external APIs. Despite these limitations, Sweep offers an efficient solution for small tickets and can handle multiple tasks in parallel.
